So an unavoidable and passionate night has commenced between you and you partner. Some wine or alcohol may have been involved and you wake up tangled in the sheets with your partner, a hangover and quite few hickies. Sure you can cover up some of them, but what about those located on the more exposed areas? You can’t possibly wear those kinds of accessories at work, what if your boss sees you? They won’t flip out but it’s quite embarrassing actually, so how to get rid of hickies, you say? Here are some tips that you might find helpful.
Don’t Throw Away that Banana Peel
Don’t throw that peel away, you’ll be using the inside part of it and yes we know that it might sound ridiculous but it has proven its effects. There’s an explanation for this, the inside part of a banana peel actually helps shrink that red angry mark due to its cooling properties. So take that peel off of a ripe banana and place the inside part of the peel on your hickies; place it there for 10 – 30 minutes. Repeatedly do this for two or three times a day and your hickey will disappear in no time at all.
Use a Warm Compress
It’s been a couple of days, about three or four now and you still have that hickey. We highly advise that you apply some heat on the hickey in order to allow blood to better circulate on the area. The old blood that was basically the cause of the hickey will be removed with the help of the new blood. All you have to do is wet a washcloth with some warm water before you carefully place it on the hickey for about 5 minutes. In case it cools too quickly for your liking then dip it in more warm water.
