Protect Your Legs to Keep Them Beautiful!

Spider veins or varicose veins often can be prevented.  Your best chance to avoid them is if you remember to take these simple precautions.

Don't just sit for too long in one place.  Get up often and walk or stand to increase your blood circulation.

Also, you should try to skip baths or showers that are overly hot or steamy.  Bathing with water that is exceptionally hot can lead to vein and leg swelling. 

Do your legs another big favor during your leisure time.  Be sure to elevate your legs on a footstool or pillow when watching television, reading, etc.

Equally important, is how you sit.  Don't keep your legs crossed for long stretches of time because it can restrict blood flow.

Another thing to be aware of is concerning how tight you like to wear your clothes.  Avoid too restricting type outfits around the waist, groin and legs unless you want to risk causing a problem.

Those supportive pantyhose are wonderful.  They can provide your legs with an energizing feel as well as in keeping a slight vein problem appear less visible.  Wearing them can help someone with visible veins already from having a problem get worse. 

Hopefully, these suggestions will help you keep your legs healthy and as beautiful as possible!
