I wish I had advice but I am in the same boat as you, I have a genetic disorder when one of the symptoms is easy bruising….like accidentally touch my arm and I bruise, I hope someone has some good advice because I can use it too.

I would try taking arnica orally, and getting arnica ointment or gel (both commonly avaialable at natural health food stores). I’m in the same boat as you, and this really helps! The pills help with not getting bruises as much, and the gel helps them heal faster. I recently read in a magazine that some actress takes arnica for bruising, maybe another bee will remember who it was!

I would also suggest going to a place that sells theatre makeup, or corrective makeup for people with serious stuff to hide, and get some base that matches your skintone. Pay attention to the specific colors of your bruising, and get some corrective cream makeup in the opposite color (usually orange or peach). It helps cancel out the bruising before you add skin toned base on top. Ask the people at the counter, they should be able to set you up!! IMO, theatre make up is the way to go for serious coverage. It’s crazy pigmented!!

No advice for vitamins but if you do happen to have a bruise on the day of both Dermablend and Kat Von D have great cover all concealers that will do a great job to hide them.
