Bruise guards

(a)    Aging capillaries:  With the passage of time the tissues supporting the blood vessels weaken, and capillary walls become more fragile and prone to rupture.

(b)   Thinning skin: With age, the skin becomes thinner and loses some of the protective fatty layer that helps cushion blood vessels from injury. Excessive exposure to the sun accelerates this process. 

(c)    Blood-thinning drugs:  Some drugs such as Aspirin and Warfarin (Coumadin) or medications such as Plavix reduce the blood's ability to clot. The result of this is bleeding from capillary damage  this allows blood to leak out and can cause a bruise.
