When evaluating bruise creams, you need to know what to look for to judge the safety and efficacy of the product. The goal of bruise creams is to both lessen the tendency of future bruising and to help speed the healing of bruises that you already have.
Don’t believe marketing that tells you that a bruise cream works overnight. They don’t and you should be wary of such claims. Rather, good bruise creams are an investment in your skin health. You should think of them as a moisturizer that has the extra added benefit of helping with bruise treatment and prevention. Applying bruise creams two to three times a day is generally recommended since greater period of contact with the skin area most prone to bruising can help with efficacy.
Next, you should look for ingredients. One key ingredients in bruise creams is arnica. Arnica can promote increased circulation and blood flow to the bruised area. It helps your body to reabsorb the bruise using your own body’s natural healing mechanisms.
Vitamin K is also a key ingredient that plays a role in your body’s clotting mechanisms and can help with bruise healing.
Additionally, there are multiple other anti-oxidants such as Vitamin C and Vitamin E that may help in promoting bruise healing.
Finally, you want to make sure that the cream itself goes on smoothly, deeply moisturizes your skin, and is pleasant to apply.
As you can see from this blog, it takes a lot to make the best bruise cream. The two Harvard-trained dermatologist founders of Skintensive Bruise & Scar Cream had all this in mind when they came up with their original formula for the product. Skintensive Bruise & Scar Cream is packed with a high concentration of arnica, augmented with Vitamin K and Vitamins C and E, and blended into a creamy coconut oil base that goes on smooth without leaving a greasy residue. Through testing and continued evolution of the product, Skintensive Bruise & Scar Cream has become a must-have skin care product and has been voted as The Best Bruise Cream by NEWBEAUTY® Magazine.
