Varicose and spider veins are considered an ugly but superficial problem. For many people with varicose and spider veins, the biggest concern is how to hide those unsightly veins when they go out in public. Giving in to this concern, they spend a lot of money on makeup advertised to hide ugly veins and make the legs appear presentable.
Before you go out and spend your money on these products, you should know that those tubes of makeup are a hassle to apply daily, and regular use is harmful to your skin and health. Improper application of the makeup can leave you with uneven streaks that look worse than the bruised veins.
Go Underneath The Surface
See, varicose veins are different from spider veins. While spider veins might be a purely cosmetic issue, varicose veins are a serious health concern. You develop varicose veins when the tiny valves in the blood vessels of the dermis stop working properly and can’t keep the blood flowing in a single direction.
Weak or damaged valves are unable to open and shut in rapid succession, allowing the blood to flow backward and cause blood pooling in the lower parts of the body.
These ‘pools’ of blood create ugly bluish or purplish bulges beneath the surface of the epidermis. Covering up these bulges is just a band-aid solution and allows the issue to progress into severe venous disorders such as venous ulcers and deep vein thrombosis.
Better Than Makeup
When you cover up those ugly bulging veins, you’re ignoring a serious circulatory issue that gets worse with time. Delaying treatment for varicose veins can result in fatal blood clots that travel to the heart and block the circulation.
Another factor you need to consider is that while the makeup covers up varicose veins, it does nothing to relieve painful symptoms like:
- Deep aches
- Feeling of heaviness and discomfort
- Burning and stinging sensation
Additionally, the chemicals and synthetic ingredients used in most varicose vein makeup can have negative effects on the skin and weaken the epidermis.
The best thing for varicose veins is to see a vein expert and getting the veins evaluated for possible underlying medical issues. Professional vein specialists can help you remove the damaged veins through innovative, pain-free, and non-invasive treatments that will cost less than what you spend on makeup.
