A bruise is caused when tiny blood vessels (capillaries) break or burst under the skin often caused by a bump, knock or fall. The blood from the capillaries seeps into the surrounding tissue area and creates the familiar bluish or purple-coloured appearance of a bruise.
Bruises go through 5 stages before they fade. A fresh bruise is usually bluish purple, after a day or two it will turn blue. Then it will go from brown, to green, to yellow and finally back to the normal skin colour as it heals.

Top tips for bruise relief
- Apply Nelsons® arnicare® Arnica Cream gently to the bruised area, avoiding any broken skin. There are many reasons why some people are more likely to bruise, or show bruises, than others, depending on your age, overall health or the complexity of your skin. Bruises are natural, and tend to disappear over a few weeks. However it’s unusual for a person to develop bruises for no reason, so if that happens to you, or if further symptoms develop, please seek medical advice from your doctor.
