Most of the women have to deal with problems like visible veins, painful and swollen feet, and visible, cracked capillaries. This is not only an aesthetic problem, but it is also a sign that the blood vessels are weakened, mostly because of exeternal factors, and partly because of the internal.
There is no specific cause why this problems occur, the only reasonable answer is that the causes are different with each woman. Nowadays, almost all women have burst capillaries on their legs. I had that problem for 20 years. I follow what’s going on, and I see that the capillaries are not spreading quickly, but they have spread significantly in the last 3 months, because I have been standing a lot and have walked into some kind of medical flip-flops, which I highly doubt are good.
There are many external factors that can cause varicose veins including sitting, standing, as well as uncomfortable shoes with too high or low heels. Pregnancy is another important factor. In my case, everything started during the second pregnancy, when I had to rest. Moreover, nutrition is also very important, so you should try to consume more animal protein and plenty of vitamin C, which will help you prevent the weakening of the vein wall.
Make sure to avoid sugar and trans fatty acids since they can cause various body inflammation, which indirectly can weaken the capillary walls. Follow these advices that can help you alleviate the problem.
