how do i rid dark bruises on my nose from wearing glasses?

over the years i have gotten dark marks ( i'm told they are bruises) on both sides of my nose from wearing glasses. how can i get rid of them without using body foundations which don't work (they come off when wearing glasses)? cocoa cocoa butter wouldn't work because it's a bruise. Help me, please

Mederma is recommended for getting rid of scars. A permanent bruise sounds similar. Might be worth a try

A bruise will only heal with time. You can apply a cold compress to the bruised area to help speed up the process. As a home remedy, it is recommended to gently rub gel containing Arnica. Arnica helps heal damage to soft tissue, bruising as well as damage caused from strain.

To avoid indentations, marks, or bruising, have your Optometrist custom fit your glasses. You can also wear contact lenses as an alternative. Metal frames are recommended as they are lighter in weight and are more flexible.

have you ever tried using witch hazel?
it's such a great natural remedie to 'curing' brusing. i use a cotton ball and put the alcohol directly on the bruised area. it's not a cure all, but it makes the bruising go away faster.
