We all enjoy the thoughts of warm summer days in the sun relaxing. However, those higher temperatures can also exacerbate varicose veins. Follow the these tips to help keep your legs happy this summer.
Apply the sunscreen. Sunburn increases the temperature of your skin, causing dilation of blood vessels. Dilated vessels lead to increased opportunity for blood to pool and cause varicose veins. Protet your skin and keep applying sunscreen.
Drink water. Dehydration can make varicose veins worse. Continue to hydrate throughout the day to keep your skin healthy.
Get up and move. If you are traveling and will be sitting for a long period of time, remember to stand up and move around regularly to increase blood circulation throughout your veins.
Consider treatment. You do not need to suffer with the discomfort of varicose veins.
