In brief: Maybe bad valves

One reason is xs fluid or poor heart function.
However at your age if you are in good health and active , poorly functioning valaves in the veins of your legs may cause blood to pool there . This would not explain the veins in .your arms and neck Sometimes normal veins arr prominent in thin people
