Welcome to JustAnswer Health...and thank you for your question. I am a verified Expert and am delighted to help you today. Veins are more prominent on fair skinned people and they also become more prominent in warmer temperatures... this is normal. Cold compresses will help i t to diminish temporarily. There is nothing to worry about with this.
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX I ask one additional question: Is there any connection between drinking and how much veins show through the skin? I don't drink much, usually one drink with dinner 5 nights a week or so.
Yes, alcohol is a vasodilator which can cause veins to be larger.
You could try eliminating that one drink... see if it helps... but my guess is one drink isn't making that much difference.
