Spider veins occur when small veins below the surface of the skin congregate, causing red and blue lines. Here is how can you get rid of this problem!
Spider veins usually affect the legs, hand and face and in most cases are harmless, but not very aesthetic. Many people find them unsightly and would do anything to get rid of ’em. They can disappear on their own in a short period of time, but there are also some home remedies can expedite the process.
If spider veins are accompanied by swelling, pain, rashes, itching or restless legs, you should immediately go to the doctor. Sometimes they may cause complications such as skin ulcer, bleeding, phlebitis and deep vein thrombosis.
Here are some home remedies you can use to get rid of spider veins when they are not accompanied by other issues:
1. Ginger. Ginger stimulates blood circulation and helps break up fibrin, a blood protein that builds up in areas where the tiny veins are injured. Drink daily 2-3 cups of ginger tea with raw organic honey and your symptoms may disappear. Avoid this remedy if you have high blood pressure.
2. Ginkgo Biloba. Maybe you’ve heard before about this amazing herb. It has the power to enhance tissue oxygenation and strengthen the tissues that form vein walls. This is a very powerful remedy for treating spider veins and you should ask your doctor about it. Only a specialist can determine the correct dose for you.
3. Exercise. Y’all know that exercise is the best remedy ever for many many health problems and spider veins make no exception. Poor blood circulation is one of the main causes of this problem and you can prevent it and even treat it by exercising daily.
Train often your legs (especially your calf muscles), swim in the pool, climb the stairs or just jog in the park. Not a gym person? At least try walking 45 minutes every day and you’ll see major changes!
