Ack! What's the best way to get rid of a hickey FAST??

Hickey (Love Bite): Bruise on neck caused by sucking.

...How tacky...I'm so embarrassed...

Haven't had one since I was,18. I used to either put makeup on it,pull my hair over it,or wear a turtle neck sweater,till it went away.I'm glad my husband & I have out grown that.

Couldn't tell you, sorry.

I've never had one, so I don't know what advice to give you. Maybe covering it with a makeup matching your skin tone might help. I can't think of anything else, sorry!

I have also heard that freezing a spoon and placing it on it will take away some of the redness and I have heard that toothpaste left on overnite will take care of it.

I'm not helping you get rid of it.
No way! You deserve it.
I will tell you though, that I have had a hickey before (on my forehead of all places!) and I used makeup.
Who sucks on a persons forehead?!

You just have to wait for it to go away.
Don't be ashamed of your hickey! It is your proud statement that you are getting some!

Just use some foundation.

I know someone who stuck a suction cup to his forehead, and he popped it off too fast. He had a perfectly round mark there for a few days.

*shrugs* You can cover it up with a highly pigmented make-up...I don't know how to get rid of them though, just hide them.

I've done that to myself on my chin. lol
Just put your thumb and index finger around your chin and squeeze. After a bit, you'll have a nice hickey there.
(Someone told me to do it without telling me the results.)

Hickeys are icky... I remember when we were kids hearing about how a cold spoon pressed against it would help... or brushing it out with a brush would work.. I think those were mostly childhood urban legends though... go buy some thick makeup.

We used to get these little 'poppers' from gumball machines and stuck them to our foreheads without realizing the results...

Soak a green tea bag in hot water for a few seconds, then press it on your neck for ten minutes or so (reduces redness and swelling). Follow with moisturizer (replenishes skin cells) and use oil-based foundation to cover it up.

I don't know. As you get older you will learn that hickies are more for show than for pleasure and you won't bother with them.

Ack! The really flexible ones don't leave a mark if you peel them from the edges. But then, they don't stick very well either.

I have no idea.
posted 4-Sep-2001 7:09pm  
Oh I'm an ass. So I tried brushing it with my brush. I brushed and brushed and brushed and then I brushed some more.


And I had a really important job interview today, too! I was very mindful to keep that side of my neck away from the people interviewing me.

*oh man*

It went very well, thank you. I spent the entire Labor Day weekend surfing the 'net for websites advising on "how to give good interview." I wrote down the questions I knew I'd have to do some thinking about, wrote down my answers; I EVEN called former bosses asking them what my strengths were (I know my weaknesses, and when I read my bosses my copy, they agreed I was right).
I bought and studied cover to cover the latest Nick Jr. magazine. I had a list of questions written up to ask them, which came in really handy, because at one point, the editor yawned, said "I haven't had enough coffee yet, why don't you ask ME questions now." I had them all prepared, and her intitial response to a couple of them was "Wow, what a good question!"

Suffice to say, I was SO prepared for the interview; I was actually relaxed, I was calm, and all the "studying" I did really made the difference between being interviewed to making sure that I was interviewing for the right company. In no way was I desperate. I was very...
I actually had a good time.

They've given me "homework," three articles I have to write and have submitted by Friday. I'm having a wonderful time brainstorming and writing.

Thank you for asking!
Even if I don't get the job, just teaching myself how to really effectively prepare for an interview has been an award in and of itself.

Wear a kerchief, or some make-up or hide for a week..

Another option would be for a friend to suck a bigger part of your skin to make it look like a real bruise!
(reply to Oscar) posted 8-Sep-2001 2:42am  
Another way to get one is to take a (preferably plastic) glass, hold it to your mouth (low on your upper lip) and suck the air out. Keep it in position for more than 15 minutes and that gives a real nice, circular hickey on your chin!

the toothbrush idea would have worked had you not scrubbed so hard....Your supposed to scrub gently. It breaks up the blood clot under your skin and redistributes it to the area so instead of this really big mark on your skin you have a normal skin tone. I boyfriend loves to give me hickey's before i have to do something important,. what you do when you use the toothbrush idea is start from the outside edges and gently brush from the inside out and it will usher your blood to a lower surface of you skin so it doesn't show up.

Ok so this is what you do. Put a spoon in the freezer and put the rounded side on the hickey and let it stay there for 5 minuets
