varicose and spider vein causes and cures?

I (26 yrs) stand a lot, and have noticed that in a very short period of time I have developed a lot of dark purple spider veins, and a painful varicose vein. My mother does not have half as many veins showing as I do, and she is a hairdresser who stands almost the whole day. What can I do?
