How to Get Rid of Hickeys - Hickeys, also known as love bites or bruises caused by sucking or biting the skin, can be embarrassing or unwanted. Here are a few methods that may help reduce their appearance:
Applying a cold compress or ice pack to the hickey to reduce swelling and constrict blood vessels. Gently massaging the area to promote blood circulation and break up the blood clot.
Using topical creams or lotions containing vitamin K or arnica, which are believed to help with bruising. Remember, hickeys will gradually fade over time on their own, and hiding them with clothing or makeup can also be an option.
