You will also observe that little babies are licking their lips and hand. After a while you will notice that there are some meek red marks on their skin which occurred due to blowing out of the skin. Hickeys require time to fade away. This is kind of skin a problem occurs without any hesitation. But it’s important to remove the hickeys as soon as possible because it is embarrassing to look at.
HOW TO GET RID OF HICKYES FAST:
Now let’s come to the point of getting rid of hickeys. It’s not possible to get rid of it overnight but by taking some proper step you can get rid of hickeys fast. There will be many tricks so you should better stick to the end to watch the main part.
CONCEAL YOUR HICKEYS:
The first thing in my list is to hide the hickeys. This is the fastest way to avoid markings of hickeys. In every house there is some concealer I think. In a brush take some concealer and conceal the hickeys. Take the shade which is similar to your skin color. Then cover it. After concealing you can use compact powder or face powder to give it a matt look as your skin is. Some people will get paranoid after seeing it in my first list but to be honest this is the fastest way to go out the next morning you had a hickey last night.
ALOE VERA GEL:
Aloe Vera is one widespread item which is best for any types of skin related issues. The anti-inflammatory and soothing agent is helpful if you are facing any dilemma like hickey or bruises. Aloe Vera gel holds some vitamin which helps to fade away the markings and increases the blood circulation. I prefer to use raw Aloe gel by cutting it in half. Rub the gel onto the affected area and let it dry. You can use aloe gel 3 to 4 times a day for better result.
APPLICATION OF ICE OR COLD OBJECT:
Cold compress is one most excellent remedy of all. Cold compress helps the blood which clogs into the soft skin. You can variously use cold compress in different ways.
Take some ice cubes in a paper towel and apply the ice onto your affected area. You can use cold compress whenever you like it. There are no certain time limits of using cold compress. Another method is to use cold spoon. Place one or two spoon in the fridge for about 20 minutes and after that let it out and place it over the bruises or hickeys. It will give soothing effect to the area which is inflamed.
USE SOFT TOOTHBRUSH:
You may have already got the idea of using toothbrush. Take a placid bristle toothbrush and rub it on the hickeys. Be careful that you need to do this with soft hand. This will do two works. Firstly, this will even out the blood flow and then it will fade away the hickeys by removing dead cell of the skin. Substitute option is to use comb instead of toothbrush. After brushing wait for about 15minutes to see the situation and after that apply cold compress onto the affected area to pacify that place.
Peppermint oil is one of the best remedies in my thinking. It simulates the areas where there are hickeys and it will also build up the capillary vessels. Apply few drops of peppermint oil onto the affected area and rub it for some time. You will feel a bit tickling sensation after applying peppermint oil. I prefer not to use peppermint oil more than once. You can use it twice if you wanted to heal your hickeys fast but I suggest people to use any carrier oil with it.
Make a paste out of the basil leaf, and then keep it in the fridge. After 30 minutes, apply the basil leaf on the hickeys and then massage gently with your hand. There are many more benefits. Such as basil leaf is an herbal plant which is used for many skin related problems. Another thing is that you are using your finger tips to message the area which increases the blood circulation and ultimately fades out the hickey markings.
Vitamin C is well known for its essential nutrients. Vitamin C truly helps to fade the markings or lightens the skin complexion. You can drink fresh orange juice to add vitamin C to your body or you can intake vitamin C tablets 500 milligrams per day to get rid of this embarrassing situation. Sometimes I use Lemon juice on the affected area. Rub it for sometimes and then keep it for about 5 minutes. After that I try to wash it off with cold water. This method is really accommodating to reduce hickeys.
HIDE IT WITH CLOTHING:
Again my solution is to use clothing to hide out hickeys. If you had a meeting the same day when you have noticed the hickeys, then you have no other choice except to hide it. You can Use scarf, turtleneck, collared dress or shirts, sweater (if it is winter) etc to hide your hickeys. You can also use accessories to hide out hickeys. If your hair is long enough then you can use this long hair to conceal hickeys.
APPLICATION OF WARM COMPRESS:
If you are seeing that hickeys are staying on you for more than 1 day, than you can go for hot or warm compress. You can use hot water bag or can use a cloth. Firstly, take a piece of cotton cloth and then dip it in the hot water or warm water and then apply it onto the hickeys. Press deeply as it will help to fade away hickeys. Hot compress can cause redness on the skin but the redness will be less than the hickeys markings.
You can also try another method. Take an iron and heat it up. Then take a cloth and heat it up with the iron. Apply the hot cloth over the hickeys and press it gently. Repeat this process 10-15 times or more than that.
These all are the tips and techniques to fade away the stubborn hickeys .It’s embarrassing to show it off. Application of any aforesaid methods is effective to get rid of hickeys fast. Thanks for your humble consideration for reading this article. For further query, feel free to ask any questions.
