Varicose veins is a condition that is caused by twisted, weakened, and damaged veins, which makes the vein visible and creates a bulge on your legs. It is a common condition that can be treated with surgery or laser treatment. If you're like me and don't like spending time at a hospital or getting beamed with lasers, I recommend a more preventative non-invasive treatment that will improving blood circulation and ultimately, improve varicose veins. Being a hairstylist and makeup artist, I'm used to being on my feet for the entire day.

Follow these 5 simple tips gathered from the Mayo Clinic as well as from my own experience that help varicose veins:

  1. Exercise and get moving to help with blood circulation and overall health.
  2. Focus on your weight, since any added weight will affect the amount of pressure on your veins.
  3. Wear compression socks to help prevent swelling and increase blood flow to your legs.
  4. Elevate your legs to help relieve pressure at the end of the night, especially if you're on your feet all day.
  5. Change between sitting and standing position to help increase blood circulation.
