How can I make a bruise go away?

I have a large, ugly bruise on my shin, and I'd like for it to go away so that I can wear shorts.

The traditional treatment for a bruise is to apply witch hazel. This is a native American plant that contains an astringent and can be obtained from a pharmacist. A few dabs applied externally - then repeated - should help to hasten the fading of a bruise.

Wait. Eventually it will heal itself. It is very important to not inflict another bruise as this would defeat the purpose of getting rid of the original bruise.
