Lately, I have noticed the appearance of strange veins in my skin.
They are very small and resemble those which you would see in the skin
of heavy smokers and drinkers, which , according to my knowledge,
appear because of oxygen deprevation resulting from their poor habits. In
my case they aren't red, but blue. I am perplexed that I have this
problem because I have a very healthy life style. I eat foods which
are good for me, such as fruits and other vegetables. Simply put, I
avoid fatty foods etc. I also exercise very frequently. I go to a rock
climbing gym 4 times a week. I do not smoke, and I drink about one
glass of wine every 3 months.
     These veins are appearing on my shoulders, just beneath my
pectoral muscles, and on my ankles. I also think they're popping up
around my upper back, though I can't see for sure.
     In any case, I thought this was a problem old people had. I am 21
years old. I am male, just incase that is useful information. 
     It doesn't seem to me that oxygten deprivation should be an issue.
     My question is this: What is causing this and what can I do to
reverse and prevent it?

Maybe I mean spider veins, I'm not sure. They're very small and
underneath my skin. They do not cause any change to the surface of my
skin, other than being visible. They're about as big as the veins
you'd see in someones eyes after they sneezed.
There is no answer at this time.

Researchers are not Medical Doctors. If you are concerned because of
"strange" veins.. consult a Physician right away!
