So how do I get rid of this bruise quickly? I had a cashier make a comment about the bruises and while I understand her heart is in the right place I don't want people thinking my DH abuses me.


So anything I can do to get rid of bruises quickly?

Concealer? A green concealer cancels it out. But I wouldn't worry about a silly bruise like that

Um, makeup? It doesn't look bad. I'd just leave it alone.

Why does it matter what other people think?

This is a small town and I don't want rumors to spread.

You should see the bruises I rock all summer long. The absolute best was the handprint on my arm. I tripped while hiking and DH grabbed me to keep me from going down the hill. Oh the drama that one caused!

Maybe it's just the picture, but the bruise doesn't look bad. I would just continue wearing what you want and ignore comments from people.

I'll try that, I didn't even think of a concealer.

I bruise easily and have the same problem with people questioning me about it on a regular basis: usually most are satisfied with an "I'm anemic" or "I'm just clumsy" response, but if it really gets to be that big of an issue you can use makeup or a chunky bracelet to cover.
