Alternatives to Healing 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.
- 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.
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.
| 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.
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.
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.
