Love seems unfinished without love bites and love bites can be pretty discomforting, because a hickey or love bite bruise, takes at least a week to become lighter but that hickey week can be really treacherous, especially if you are living with your parents, we have some amazing skin care tips to remove hickey within a couple of days.
Love bites are usually given on neck. Kissing, sucking or biting the skin forcefully enough burst the sensitive blood vessels beneath the skin, which causes bruise or hickey.
The magic of Ice
Ice can be really efficient, when applied to the hickey, soon after the love bite. Ice will help to reduce and control the color and puffiness but do not keep the ice on your body for any longer than 20 minutes, wrap it in some cloth and then apply it to the hickey.
Brush it out
Another way to get purge of your hickey is with a toothbrush. Take a soft toothbrush and slowly and systematically brush the hickey in circular motion from the inmost part to the outmost part of the bruise. Brushing the hickey helps to start up circulation again and it will speed up your healing process. Do it frequently until your hickey is all gone.
Put a spoon in the freezer for a few minutes. Apply pressure and slide the spoon along the hickey. The pressure and coldness help scatter the blood that has formed. You will need to repeat freezing, if the spoon starts getting warm it does not work.
By doing the above mentioned hickey removing methods, your hickey will still take a day or two to completely fade away. In the meantime, you can use your makeup skills to conceal your hickey. Apply concealer or skin-colored eye shade to the bruise, wear turtle neck or scarf or wear your hair down to ensure your love secret.
