Bruises Home Remedies

Treat bruises using potatoes - Potatoes contain an enzyme called catecholase which is found in most cosmetic products. It is used to lighten the skin. Peel a potato and run it through your processor. Put the processed on a piece of cheesecloth and place it over the bruise. This is also good for them dark circles under the eye.

Treat bruises with potato.

ice pack

Ice - Use an ice pack to treat any injury that might lead to a bruise. The ice pack will need to be applied as quickly as possible following the injury and treatment continued for 24 hours if you suspect that the bump will blossom into a severe bruise. Apply the ice pack at 15-minute intervals. Cooling constricts the blood vessels, and that means less blood spills into the tissues to cause the bruise. A cold pack also minimizes the swelling and numbs the area, so it won't hurt as much as a bruise left unchilled.

Heat - After applying the ice pack for 24 hours, use a heat pack to dilate the blood vessels and improve circulation in the area of the bruise.

Heat Pack


Sit with your feet up - Bruises are little reservoirs of blood. Blood, like any liquid will run down if you are standing. Blood that has collected in a bruise will seep down through soft tissues and find other places to puddle.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C - Add vitamin C to your daily diet. People who lack vitamin C in their diets tend to bruise more easily. And their wounds heal more slowly. Vitamin C helps build protective collagen tissue around blood vessels in the skin. If you tend to bruise easily, it is suggested you take 500mg of vitamin C each day.

Watch the medications - People who take aspirin to protect against heart disease will find that a bump turns into a bruise very easily. Some people taking blood thinners will find they bruise easily, too. Other drugs such as anti-inflammatory drugs, antidepressants, or asthma medicines can inhibit clotting under the skin and cause larger bruises. Alcoholics or drug abusers tend to bruise easily, too.

Watch your medication.
