As a retail worker or beautician, your job requires you to spend long hours on your feet lifting and carrying merchandise on hard floors or treating hair. The constant standing in one place for periods of time can cause damage to your legs over time.
The continual pressure can affect vein health by causing spider veins, which are webs of blue and purple veins on the skin surface. Varicose veins may also develop. Varicose veins can lead to significant tissue damage when fluid leaks through weakened vein walls and goes into the surrounding tissue of your legs. This can cause swelling around the ankles. Skin deterioration with later eventual ulceration, can be a later consequence.
If you are in retail sales or a beautician, here are some tips for protecting leg health:
