ButterThis works when you feel a bruise coming as the fat in butter helps your skin cells to heal faster. Take one small bit of butter an smear it all over the damaged area and hopefully a small bruise will come up or even no bruise.

Vanish! ta-daMy sister got bruised from falling on the roadside and she was afraid to show our grandma(who worries tooo much) so I tried combining 2 of the remedies posted here and it worked!
1.Comb out the bruise gently with a toothbrush or comb. 2.Apply a mixture of toothpaste and salt which will help heel the bruise very fast. Hope it works for you too!

Lavender essential oilTry lavender essential oil mixed with carrier oil (Coconut, Shea Butter, Olive, any oil will do) and apply directly to the bruise and bandage it. The bruise will go away in no time. If it is burning or hurting, that means you added to much lavender oil.

ToothpasteIt sounds weird but it works wonders!! And is readily available. Smooth toothpaste over your bruise and bandage it before you go to bed. (The bandages are so the toothpaste doesn't go everywhere.) I had bad bruises and they had faded after one night and were almost completely gone after two nights! It seriously worked!!! :)

Black eye and bruised cheekFirst apply neosporin and rub on bruise treating it like a hickie. Once you have rubbed bruise apply bengay on top. Its going to burn a bit in the beginning but takes bruise away. Do twice a day. Do not get in eye.

Mrs. wI apply a coin such a penny to a small bruised area and press down gently, holding the coin there for a minute. Move the coin to different areas of the bruise, allowing the clotted blood underneath the skin to disburse. The bruise will turn brown in the next day and will certainly fade out completely after that.

The cure for bruisesA long time ago, I had a wreck in my car which left a large bruise on my abdomen (I flipped the car at 80 miles per hour 3 times).
My doctor prescribed Bromelain tablets.
I looked up bromlain and was surprised to know that it was a constituent of bananas, the white part has the highest content.
Now pure bromelain
tablets are available at health food stores.
My bruise went away after only a few days.
