How Can I Prevent Spider Viens, What Causes Them


Some of us are born with them and others develop varicose and spider veins from changes in the body such as increased body weight, trauma, and other external factors. We hide our legs under long dresses and pants as the veins look less than flattering, can be painful, and will make you ashamed of one of the most feminine parts of your body! This summer, be proud of your lady limbs and let us show you how!

Unfortunately some of us inherit them and some of us develop varicose and spider veins from increased body weight, trauma, and other external factors, either way, they look less than flattering, can be painful, and will make you ashamed of one of the most feminine parts of your body! For years I have hidden my legs under long dresses and pants but this summer, I am super proud of my lady limbs and will be adding shorts to my wardrobe to show them off!

How do you get spider veins?

Spider veins, the smaller version of varicose veins, are blood vessels that twist and turn under the skin. They are most common in the leg. They can become so large that the veins can be seen through the skin.  Both spider and varicose veins are visible veins due to venous insufficiency which occurs when vein valves  become damaged or weak causing the blood to pool instead of traveling back up it’s path to the heart. Other issues unrelated to venous insufficiency which cause veins include hormones, sun exposure, and even minor injuries.
