They could be a sign of… age (sorry!), frag­ile blood ves­sels, or you may be low in vi­ta­mins C and K. WHAT TO TAKE ‘Vitamin C has been shown to help pre­vent bruis­ing, and most of us are short of it, any­way,’ says Rick. ‘It’s es­sen­tial for heal­ing and great skin, so tak­ing it is al­ways a good idea.’ Vitamin K2 is ben­e­fi­cial for healthy blood ves­sels, bones and mem­ory. Take a cock­tail of vitamin C and omega 3s with added vitamin K2. TRY The Syn­ergy Com­pany Pure Ra­di­ance C, £27.99 for 90 cap­sules, Nutri­mar­ket. Vitamin K2, £34.98 for 60 soft­gels, Wi­ley’s Finest. WHAT TO DO Ar­nica is the go-to herb for bumps and bruises. Try a spray for ease – get­ting it on fast helps pre­vent a bruise form­ing. TRY Ar­nica Bumps & Bruises Spray, £6.25 for 20ml, Weleda.
