Goodbye, Bruises! Tips & Remedies to Make Bruises Go Away Faster
How It Works
We asked our Facebook Group members and Instagram followers to share tips for making a bruise go away more quickly. Here's a roundup of their responses so far:
harmonica269: Arnica! It's a mountain herb in a tube of cream. It works great on bruises and soft tissue aches. Boiron makes a good cream and it's available OTC at Walgreens and other drug stores.
carolinerebeccasmith: I second Arnica!
Mara Berkman Landis: Lavender oil can help. Have also heard apple cider vinegar can help as well.
Kayle Jacoby: Epsom salt is extremely helpful. I recommend sprinkling some on a hot wet washcloth.
Pamela Hoopes: Bromelain... They had me take it before eye surgery to help with bruising
nikkjjuen_soofficialrightnow: Arnica gel, vitamin c (if you bruise often), and gentle massage as is tolerable. I’m also experimenting with CBD creams.
Kali Bowman: Arnica gel helps. There’s one called Arnicare bruise that absorbs really quickly
Andrea Reichel Kunkel: Arnica is very good
Lisa Mason Drake: We’ve had success using epsom salt too.
thaimassage.jules: Arnica ! But not on an open cut❣️
aimeeschenkel: Agree on Arnica. Either the gel or homeopathic where you dissolve the tablets under the tongue. As for the gel, you can get a tube that also has MSM...also I had a massage therapist tell me to add chelated magnesium as well. I think the magnesium was for the muscle aches...
Mandy Whitehead: Arnica.
