You go home with a guy after a night out and things start heating up fast. In the heat of the moment, he sucks on your neck a little too hard and you’re left with a souvenir. Shit! But don’t worry. A hickey, though unsightly and a little embarrassing is simply a bruise and nothing to worry about long-term. Read this article to find out how to get rid of a hickey.
Sure, in the passionate moments you do not know what’s going on, but after, you realize how a bruise has risen on your throat. And if you notice in time, you have a chance to get a sign faster. The first thing you do is apply ice on the bite. If you do not have one, leave a spoon in the freezer for an hour or two, and then massage the affected area for 20 minutes. Because the sensation is not at all pleasant, you can pause for a few minutes and then massage again.
Massage the mark with a toothbrush
For this operation, you need a new toothbrush with stiff bristles. Simply bruise the bruise and the nearby area gently so that the blood there moves. Be careful, though, because if you push too hard, you will make the sign more obvious. After about 15 minutes, you should see how the redness expands and is less obvious. Later, keep a piece of ice on the bruise and you will notice that your skin will get a normal look. If the mark is too high, you can repeat the process.
Rub the skin with a coin
This method is the most painful but also the most effective. To begin with, you have to stretch the affected skin, and then massively massage the area using a coin. This will remove the excess blood that has passed through the capillaries and has reached the surface of the skin. Massage will make your skin red, but for a little while. In addition, red skin raises fewer suspicions than a bite, do not you think?
Apply toothpaste on the hickey
Apply toothpaste on the sign and let it act for a few minutes. When you do not feel any tingling, remove it with a cloth moistened with lukewarm water. After 24 hours, repeat the process. The faster you act, the more toothpaste will be more effective.
Massage the affected area
Mass the area with two fingers clockwise, and after a minute changes the direction. Thus, you will put the blood in motion, and the bruise will lose its intensity. If you can not get rid of the hickey even after a few days, use the heat. Simply put a cloth in warm water, squeeze it and keep it on bruise for a few minutes.
