Summer Sun Can Cause Facial Thread Veins

Sun Exposure Spider VeinsWith summer holidays on the way, doctors are reminding the public that sun exposure can cause facial thread veins.

Many people suffer from facial thread veins – the appearance of tiny red veins near the skin’s surface. These can be quite ageing and difficult to disguise with makeup.

One of the top potential causes is sun exposure and patients are therefore advised to practice ‘safe sun’ over the summer period

  • wear high factor sunscreen SPF30+
  • avoid the sun at peak times (11am-3pm in the UK, longer abroad in hot countries)
  • make sure you never burn
  • cover up with a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses
