6 Possible Reasons Why Veins Show Through Your Skin

Maybe you have been seeing bulging veins on your hands and you are wondering whether it is a sign of medical problem. For many people, the veins bulging is normal and the veins in their arms are functioning properly. However, for others who are few, bullying veins on the arms can be a symptom of a bigger problem.

There are a number of reasons why you have bulging veins. Below are some of the causes:

1. Low body fat. When you have little fat in your body, your veins can be prominent.

2. Age. When you start getting old, your skin becomes thin and and its elasticity reduces causing your veins to be more visible.

3. Exercise. After an exercise, your blood pressure increases and the veins are pushed near the skin to regulate the body temperature. Regular exercise can make the builging veins permanent though.

4. Genetics. If your close family members have bulging veins, then you are likely to have them too.

5. Sign of hot weather. High temperature makes your veins bulge out to the surface as it makes your valves not to work properly.

6. Varicose veins. These appears more on the legs rather than on your hands as a result of weakned valves. They can become twisted, enlarged and painful at times.
