  • Ice will help the swelling if there is any. The worse the black eye, the longer it will take to heal. My daughter recently had a shiner and it lasted about a week and a half before it was pretty much gone. I think it's usually about 1-2 weeks though.

  • My friends dog stepped on me one night when i was laying on the floor watching tv and I got a huge shiner. The dog was a german shepherd lol (puppy but 9 mths). It took over a week for it to heal up. My friend threw a steak at me and I used that? I dont know that there is anything really to help other then applying cold to it to keep the swelling down and time (and good foundation to cover it up lol)

  • It really depends on how bad it is. There's really only things for swelling, not the color. use foundation, lol.

  • When I had my nose job done the surgeon gave me arnica to help my black eyes heal faster. It's a herb that can be purchased from the health food store.
