Angelina Jolie Veins

One of the reasons Angelina Jolie is now in the media spotlight is her veiny arms. In case you wonder why Angelina has so veiny arms maybe the culprit is her rigorous workout regime.  







It is well known that bulging veins can be caused by weight-bearing exercises. This bulging vein process, known as filtration, causes a swelling and hardening of the muscle that is noticed during exercise. As a result of this swelling, the veins are pushed toward the skin surface and seem to bulge. These veins are more visible in people with less fat, like Angelina. This bulging has been found to be neither good nor bad but simply a result of some bodies normal way function when working out.

So, if you don't have a lot of body fat and you work out as much as Angelina, then the fat gets stripped away and the veins become exposed. The same happens with body builders... If you take a closer look at them, you will notice that their whole body is veiny!





It has to be mentioned that other celebrities have joined Angelina...Madonna, Sarah Jessica Parker and Meg Ryan are in the growing list of A-list stars with blood vessels protruding from their skinny arms, thanks to the pressure to remain fit and skinny in Hollywood.


To conclude, according to health and fitness experts, prominent veins are usually a sign of physical over-exertion and they become more evident as the body ages. In addition, celebrities follow disciplined diets which are low in salt and carbohydrates. That can cause lack of hydration in their skin.
