Variations in vein appearance exist between individuals. Tight clothing, high temperatures, direct sunlight, and vigorous exercise can all accentuate veins.
Most of the time, their appearance on the hands is just aesthetic, but sometimes they can be an indicator of a more serious problem, such as vascular disease.
So what causes arm veins to become more obvious?

In high temperatures, blood can pool under the skin, making the veins in your hands look blue and ropey.

Five: Varicose veins
When you think about varicose veins, your mind generally goes straight to your legs. Varicose veins have their origin in weakened veins and arteries.
Spider veins and varicose veins can appear anywhere on the body where blood circulation is impeded or where vein walls and valves have been damaged. This includes the hands. You may be having a medical emergency and would benefit from seeing a vascular surgeon….CONTINUE READING
