Do you bruise more easily now than you did when you were younger? Totally normal. As you age, your skin gets thinner and loses the protective layer of fat that acts as a cushion when you bump into something. Also, your blood vessels get more fragile. Both of these things mean you get more bruises.
If you take aspirin or a blood thinner, don’t be surprised by the occasional black-and-blue mark. Some supplements, like fish oil and ginkgo, can do it too.
Steroids like prednisone can also cause easy bruising, because they thin the skin. If you notice this happening, don’t stop taking your medication, but do talk to your doctor about it.
