How can I make a bruise go away faster?

Someone accidentally hit me in the jaw at work, and now there's a bruise. It hurts a lot when it's touched, and it's pretty big (about 4 inches wide). Is there any way that I can get it to go away a little faster?

I saw an article where you take a toothbrush or something like that, and if you basically brush the bruise with it, it dispels the blood and makes it go away faster. Also works for hickeys, haha

Makeup. Jk, try icing it, it will make it stop swelling and tone down the pain but the colour will still be there. So I guess makeup will help!

Use a topical cream called: Arnica (available at health food stores)

Put a spoon in the freezer till it gets very very cold then hold it on the bruise and it should go away.
