Love Bites!

Love bites, or hickeys as we more commonly call them, are a pain in the neck to hide and even harder to get rid of. A quick Google search just now produced 35,600 results. That’s a lot of people producing websites on how to rid yourself of these unsightly brandings that scream “guess-what-I-did-last-night”

For anyone interested, here are a few things I’ve tried:

  1. putting ice on the area ASAP help reduce redness but doesn’t make it disappear
  2. take a face cloth, moisten it (moist, not wet so, wring the water out) and place it in the microwave for 15-20 seconds. The cloth will be piping hot but it helps reduce the redness and soreness
  3. place a spoon in the freezer for 30-60 seconds and then place it on the mark of passion, gently massaging in a circular motion. It helps reduce the redness by breaking up the cluster of blood that has pooled beneath the skin (doesn’t that sound sexy?)
  4. Arnica, a homeopathic remedy that can be found in many stores, relieves bruising if used almost immediately.
