Blue veins that appear on the face are called spider veins. These veins are superficial blood vessels that appear blue in the skin. Common causes of spider veins include hereditary, hormones, and injury to the skin. Sun exposure can cause spider veins on the cheeks or nose of someone who has fair skin. Although spider veins develop in both men and women, they are more prevalent in women. The good news is that spider veins can be disguised. Yellow and peach concealers neutralise blue veins so they are easily covered.
