New Year’s resolutions can be great motivators to make life changes. Certainly, getting healthier is on many people’s lists, and that’s a good thing for a lot of reasons. Not only does taking better care of yourself benefit your overall health, but it can also help improve your leg and vein health, too. Here are a few ways to help your legs look and feel healthier:

Eat well

Eating a well-balanced diet can help maintain healthy leg veins.

Move a little

You don’t have to be a “gym rat” to strengthen your legs and improve blood circulation. Try walking, jogging or dancing your way to healthier legs!

Hit your healthy weight

Getting to the healthy weight for you can help you avoid varicose veins, or if you already have them, may improve the condition.

Protect your skin

Extensive sun exposure and heat can cause spider veins and varicose veins to worsen in the summer. Never leave the house without applying sunscreen on your legs and other exposed areas.

Quit Smoking

Smokers are at a higher risk for vascular and vein diseases than non-smokers. And even being around a smoker can damage your body’s vascular system.

Put the pressure on

Wearing compression stockings during the day can help improve blood circulation and relieve some symptoms of varicose veins. Ask your doctor about them!

Healthy legs, and a healthier you, start here

Living a positive, healthy lifestyle can do wonders for your leg health. If you’re bothered by the discomfort of varicose veins or spider veins, the right treatment can relieve that discomfort and restore your confidence.
