I personally use shark cartilage to reduce redness and the desire to scratch skin imperfections like mosquito bites or my mild case of psoriasis. I wear glasses during my off times, which can cause bruising to the bridge of my nose. I take two shark cartilage in pill form twice daily and the redness and bruising is reduced or gone the next day.
