Posture is one of those ways you can reduce the appearance of the veins on the legs. This is an important thing to think about because if you’re constantly slouching, this can cause pressure to happen in the spine. This cuts off circulation throughout the entire body.
Sitting with your legs crossed may be natural, especially for women, but this can be another cause of spider veins. Though it is not proper etiquette to sit with them uncrossed, it is important to sit with them uncrossed as much as possible because crossing them can cut off the circulation, causing the veins to break and create the spidering effect.
Sitting down or standing for long periods of time can also be a problem. You want to reduce the effects that come from built-up lactic acid in the body or the poor circulation of not moving for longer periods of time by moving every so often. This can help your circulation, get your blood flowing, and ensure that your body is not working as hard to keep itself moving. Of course, this is also going to help with those spider veins.
If you have a hard time moving around, or if you have a job that strictly reduces the amount you can move around, wearing compression socks can help with the circulation and helping to reduce the chances of getting spider veins.
