Meet my bruises’ best friend: Arnica Gel.
Arnica was recommended by my doctor/pole-dancing friend, Pia:
“Cecile, Can I tell you about arnica? Most of the girls in my pole (dance) and aerial studio rub it on their bruises and it makes it go away. I’ve always had a tube dahil sa peer pressure but I was always too lazy to use it. I talked to a plastic surgeon at work recently, and lately he’s been telling his patients use it post-op on their faces after nose jobs and the like and he said ang ganda ng results. Eh recently I burned my hand big time. It’s been slow healing for 2 weeks, so I put arnica on it just for fun. OMG, it looked so much better in just 2 days! Tama sila. I was thinking baka it might help you heal. I don’t know lang nga where you can get it in Pinas. I got a tube of the gel in Whole Foods for $8. I was just thinking it might help you heal faster.”
Found it at Healthy Options at Shang. I applied it to the painful/itchy areas and it works!
