Applying an ice cube to burned skin can help prevent further damage and decrease the chances that a painful blister will form. Simply rub an ice cube over the burn for 10 to 15 minutes, as soon after the injury as possible. Similarly, ice cubes can minimize bruising at a point of impact because the cold helps constrict blood vessels. Wrap the ice in a soft cloth or an old T-shirt, place on your bruise for 15 minutes, and repeat the application every hour or so.
