Bruise Control

Yunnan Baiyao

Do you bruise often because you’re clumsy? Well I do.

I use Yunnan Baiyao Aerosol spray whenever I get a bruise. It helps with shrinking the swelling and making the discoloration heal faster. This product is a hemostatic (meaning substance that stops bleeding) powdered medicine famous for being carried by the Vietcong to stop bleeding during the Vietnam War. (Read more about it on Wikipedia.) I bought mine in Shanghai.

Effectiveness: 5 out of 5

A friend gave me Scarzone bruise cream around May. She bought it in the States. It’s not as effective, but it’s soothing for small bruises. It’s best applied in the early stages of the bruise.
