Spider veins are discolored veins similar to—but less prominent than—varicose veins. They can be treated in a variety of ways, including at a doctor's office. However, several folk remedies have a strong reputation for lessening, or curing, the appearance of veins without a costly doctor's visit. Apple cider vinegar is one of them. Below, you'll learn several different methods of using apple cider vinegar to reduce pesky spider veins.
How to Get Rid of Spider Veins With Vinegar
Use a topical application by soaking bandages, a washcloth, or rags in apple cider vinegar. Place the bandages, washcloth, or rags on the affected area. Rub the affected area vigorously upward, toward your heart. Lie down with feet propped up about a foot higher than your chest. Apply a topical application without soaking bandages as an alternative. Fill a cupped hand with apple cider vinegar. Splash on the affected area. Rub or massage vigorously toward the heart with your hand. Repeat the topical application both at morning and night. Take apple cider vinegar orally for another option. Mix a glass of water with 2 tbsp. of apple cider vinegar. Stir in honey or sugar as desired; generally, 1 to 2 tbsp. is enough. Sweetener is just for taste—all that is required is vinegar and water. Drink at least one glass a day.
