I popped some pimples last night and I used one of those blemish tools which made the skin around the pimples bruise really badly. I'm going on vacation in a week so I'd really like something that would help them to go away faster, other than a cold compress. Help!
I know Arnica is supposed to help bruises heal faster...I think there are creams and gels of it.
that was the first thought that came to me too. Arnica can help wth sweling and bruising - Ive used it with success (in tablet form though) after surgery. Watch the ingredients ist though, Id personally avoid ointments or creams that have petrolatum or mineral oil listed.
First get a hard-boiled egg (use it right when it is boiled, don't wait till it chilled), remove the shell then wrap it in a thin handkerchief then use the tip of the egg to massage on the bruised area in a circular motion like applying roll-on products (I hope I am explaining it clearly ) Do it until the egg gets cold. Do NOT eat the egg afterward, it is bad!
