· December 18, 2014

Varicose veins are veins that dilate because of poor blood circulation. These veins widen and are seen underneath your skin. Although they can often be eliminated through surgery or therapy, these procedures can take a while.

If you want a fast and effective solution to treat and hide varicose veins, then keep the following recommendations in mind.

Methods for Hiding Varicose Veins

If you have visible varicose or spider veins and you want to hide them, we recommend that you follow these simple tricks that will help keep them hidden so that you can show off those skirts and dresses that flatter you so well. You can also learn some very effective home remedies to eliminate them. You will see that by combining these two methods, you will not only keep your varicose veins hidden but also have them disappear little by little.

Use Makeup to Hide Varicose Veins

The best and most effective trick to hide varicose veins is good makeup. Apply cream makeup to cover your veins, but use under eye concealer first. If your veins are blue colored, this will have to be yellow. But if your veins have red tones, the concealer has to have a red tint in it too.

After that, apply a base that is a clearer tone than your skin color in order to give it a much more natural appearance to your legs.

Bronzing Creams

These creams are very effective to hide marks, scars, and varicose veins. You can also use them everyday.

Besides being concerned about hiding them, we recommend that you also have to do some homemade treatments that are very effective in treating them, because in the majority of cases they become inflamed, which causes a very sharp pain.

Home Remedies to Alleviate Varicose Veins

The first thing you should learn is to have a healthy diet. Eat a lot of fresh fruit and raw vegetables, which are essential for keeping your skin healthy and hydrated, as well as for a healthy circulatory system.

When sleeping or resting, keep your feet elevated. This will help your blood circulate better and not remain stagnant for a long time in one place, which fosters the appearance of varicose veins. If your job requires you to be sitting down or standing up for a long time, you should move your legs or walk a little bit to activate blood flow. As a result, you will avoid a lot of problems.

If you can, try to use socks that are a little tight on your legs and keep your veins compressed. But, careful¡ They don’t have to be very tight and you shouldn’t wear tight clothing because this harms circulation and can cause other problems like cellulitis, for example.

We also recommend consuming two tablespoon of horse chestnut extract diluted in a glass of water daily.

Ointment for Varicose Veins


If you would like, you can make an ointment with marigold leaves and flowers. Sauté them in two tablespoons of butter. When it is steaming, lower the heat and let sit in a day. Then, heat it a little so that this preparation is easier to filter. Put it in a container and keep it in a cool place. Apply it everyday to the affected areas.


You can hide the appearance of varicose veins with the help of homemade treatments to eliminate them. Don’t forget that you have to do movements once in awhile in order to activate blood circulation and prevent it from becoming stagnant which causes varicose veins.
