how to reduce the likelihood of varicose veins

back of legs

I don’t know any woman that likes her large leg veins, and doesn’t want pretty, blemish-free legs. Some issues are hereditary, but we have an amazing amount of control over what our bodies look like.

If you have heavy legs and a big butt, you have a greater chance of getting varicose veins (1). Curves are cool, but thick purple veins….sometimes those delicious desserts are not worth it. Eat within your calorie range, do lunges and squats, and then go for the booty shorts.
