There’s a healing approach to spa treatments that addresses bruising with a combination of healing ingredients. UpKeep Body Builder Deep Moisturizing Body Lotion anti-bruise formula treats “delicate fruit” syndrome with a combination of skin fortifying, medicinal herbs and vitamins. Individuals with the syndrome have vulnerable skin, prone to bruising. The condition may worsen with age, as capillaries grow weaker and cell metabolism slows down. Developed by Optimal-Outcome Rapid Healing skin care, the UpKeep® Body Builder complex is said to improve cell strength and capillary function with a combination of horse chestnut and butcher’s broom to support the vascular system, and vitamin K3 to repair small capillaries and prevent vessel ruptures. Arnica Montana works to repair the bruising and burdock root helps to detoxify the blood and repair tissue.
