Small amount of input – huge effect

To prevent the occurrence of vein conditions, plan a few minutes for this short
exercise programme into your day – you will only achieve the benefits though
regular training.

Besides, it’s a good idea to move regularly, take part in sporting activities on a frequent basis, reduce weight, avoid heavy carrying and lifting, often put your legs up, avoid strong external sources of heat and consume alcohol moderately (alcohol distends the blood vessels).
Cold showers from foot to the groin help the veins to contract. Salves, gels, lotions or sprays with horse chestnut or red vine leaf extract can also keep the drive in your stride.
