The best trick to concealing varicose veins is to camouflage them with body makeup, a 100% effective method which has become a revolution. Don't use just any makeup, there are foundations specifically designed for correcting and concealing skin imperfections like varicose veins, scars, stretch marks, blemishes, etc., without staining clothing. These give you a natural, long-lasting coverage and a bright appearance that will make your legs look beautiful and clear. Choose makeups that are waterproof, especially for summer days, and find the tone that best suits your skin color. You can find these products in pharmacies.


In case you cannot afford these products, a less-effective homemade method is to make your own makeup to conceal varicose veins and spider veins. Just mix some bronzing powder with your normal body moisturizer. You'll get a moisturizer that is the perfect color to apply to blue or yellow varicose veins.


Self-tanning lotions are another good option to hide varicose veins and give skin a nice colour at any time of the year. In the supermarket you can find self-tanners with moisturising components, ideal for keeping your legs soft and spectacular-looking. Above all, be careful in the application, spread the product well to avoid an artificial-looking finish.


In most cases, using so-called compression stockings is recommended to treat varicose veins, improve circulation in the legs and relieve discomfort. Today they make these tights in dark colours, which you can also use to conceal varicose veins and wear dresses, skirts or shorts and feel completely secure.


Though varicose veins do not disappear completely unless you undergo a surgical procedure, it is possible to reduce inflammation and alleviate the pain they produce. In the article, How to treat varicose veins with home remedies, you will find solutions that will help combat swelling and therefore partially conceal varicose veins.

Hi Margaret,
Well, if you like the look of tanner skin then we recommend self-tanning lotions or makeup bronzers. However your makeup concealer will also work!

Hi Peris, This kind of product is sold in pharmacies, if they don't have this brand in your country, they may also have a similar cosmetic product. As mentioned, there are also natural remedies to help you get rid of them if you don't have a pharmacy near you. Hope this works
