Get rid of a bruise fast… The first step to do once you notice a bruise is simple: apply ice to it. This might seem kind of silly or just too easy, but it works amazingly and it really makes a difference in the amount of time it takes to heal your bruises. To apply ice to your bruises, first make some ice using your freezer. Then place a few ice cubes into a ziplock bag. If it is too cold to place the bag directly onto your flesh, wrap a towel around the bag of ice. Keep the ice on your bruise for at least ten minutes. Then you can let your bruise thaw out for about 10 more minutes, and put your ice bag back into the freezer. Repeat as often as possible for you.

Apply a cold compress on the bruise, immediately after the bruise took place. This will help quicken the healing process and this way you can get rid of bruises a lot faster.
