Ouch! That’s going to leave a mark. Not the best timing to get a bruise just at the outset of short-sleeve season. Here’s what to do…

Before you go to bed, soak a washcloth in a mixture made from equal parts water and apple cider vinegar. Wring out the cloth, and wrap it around the bruised and swollen area—be sure it’s not too tight, or you may cut off your circulation.

Then put a layer of plastic wrap on the washcloth (to protect your bedsheets), and cover the plastic wrap with a towel. Hold it in place with a large bandage or medical tape, and let it stay that way overnight. In the morning, there should be a tremendous improvement—hopefully, no swelling and just a minimal amount of bruising.
