Be rid of those unsightly varicose veins for good with the help of these tips…
At Ashbury Cosmetics located in Brisbane and the Gold Coast, we understand the discomfort and loss of self-esteem brought about by varicose veins. We have compiled a list of natural tips to help reduce your varicose veins!
1. Avoid stretching for prolonged periods of time
If this is not possible, do not move your legs as often. Stretching and flexing the ankle will pump the blood out of your legs and make it circulate again.
2. Get up and move around
If you work at a desk job or find yourself sitting for a long time, stand up and move around every 20 – 30 minutes. This will help keep the blood flow healthy.
3. Take regular walks
This will help exercise the muscles in the legs and increase blood flow.
4. Avoid restrictive clothing
Any clothing that restricts the blood flow through the legs will only hinder the varicose veins.
5. Reduce your salt intake
By lowering your salt intake you can help prevent leg and ankle swelling.
6. Raise your legs wherever possible
This will help the blood flow freely around the legs and will stop it pooling.
7. Consume more Vitamin C and fatty acids
Vitamin C can help reduce blood clotting and promote healing, fatty acids can help to reduce pain and inflammation associated with varicose veins.
If these do not help your varicose veins and you would like a solution that is virtually painless and enables you to go home on the same day, don’t suffer any longer with varicose veins and be rid of them today with the help of Ashbury Cosmetics located in Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
