How to cure bruises at home

Bruises are a result of some kind of injury. When the tiny vessels beneath the skin get damaged due to sudden injury, the blood gets trapped under the skin.

A teenager girl show a big purple bruise on her left arm that is caused by her accidentally fall off from the stairs.

Bruises can be quite difficult to treat as the injury is mostly under the skin. Moreover, how much time it will take to heal entirely depends on the sensitivity of your skin.

But here are home remedies that are safe to treat bruising and may help get rid of them faster:

Ice

As soon as you have got the injury, apply ice on it to reduce the flow of blood around the area. Doing this can prevent the bruise and reduce swelling of the area. Place a bag of ice on the bruise for 10 minutes. Repeat the same after 20 minutes.

Aloe vera

Aloe vera has an anti-inflammatory property and can help to reduce pain. The gel, when applied directly on the wound, accelerates the healing process. It also helps to reduce blood clotting. Use pure aloe gel on the area of swelling for relief.

Pineapple

Pineapple contains bromelain, which is a mixture of enzymes and has anti-inflammatory properties. This enzyme helps to cure the bruises and swelling when applied on the skin. Consuming fresh pineapple also helps to heal the wound faster. In case you are allergic to pineapple, you should avoid this remedy.

Apple cider vinegar
