We can think of a lot of things that you wouldn’t want to gain after a passionate night; a disease, a possible stalker and a hickey. Of course hickeys are not the worst thing but it would be quite embarrassing to go to work with hickeys adorning your neck or other visible parts of your body. That’s why we’re here to save you from the awkwardness of having someone see your hickey when you’d rather not. Here are some uncommon ways on how to get rid of a hickey since we’re sure that you already know the common ones.
Purchase Tons of Vitamin K Rich Foods
Broccoli, brown rice, kale and spinach, obviously you have to eat them, too. Foods that are jammed packed with Vitamin K helps quicken the body’s ability to absorb blood clots which, in your case, can be found in hickeys. Help yourself on heaps of salad or any other tasty meals packed with the mentioned foods or other Vitamin K rich foods that we didn’t mention. If you want some kind of goal to aim for, aim for about a cup or 4 to 5 ounces.
The Bristles of a Toothbrush
Don’t cut them off or anything like that, just grab a toothbrush with soft bristles and stimulate the area around the hickey; proper stimulation of a bruised area can help the blood circulation on the hickey itself and even around the area. For the best result, brush over the hickey with minimal pressure; work the bristles in different directions in order to provide the clotted blood with space. Repeat this for 5 to 10 minutes. Keep in mind that this process will provide varying results for people; how big and dark a hickey is a major factor.
