FavoriteLoadingBookmark (view it later in the 'bookmarked' tab in the main menu)

Oh! Yay! You’re engaged! Congrats. Now that you’ve met your man, it’s all about that courtship phase. First comes the courtship, then come hickeys! *Insert Blush here*
Your courtship means spending some quality time together, sometimes getting carried away in this said time, panicking over time spent alone and finally, hiding embarrassing evidences of this quality time a.k.a the dreaded hickeys!

Nah! It won’t happen to me!

Hahahahaha! Really? Let’s move past the denial and get to your options.

Okay! Let’s say I do get this…What does one do now? This is super embarrassing!

Yep! It is. You now have exactly three options:

#1 Heal it #2 Hide it #3 If all fails – Man up…and Lie  😈

How to heal those angry red monsters?

You can use either cold or hot treatment for the hickey. Mind you, instant results are a myth. But, how quickly you can cover up depends on how quickly you begin damage control.

Let’s see what all you can try:

Cold Compress – Apply a cold pack asap. Repeat often.

Alcohol – Not to drink away your embarrassment (or do!) But, rubbing alcohol works wonders on the hickey.

Spoon – Don’t spoon him (or do!) but chill a spoon & apply on the hickey for 10-15 mins asap.

Toothpaste – Apply the toothpaste on the affected area, post the tingling sensation, wash it.

Banana Peel – Cut a fresh piece of banana peel and place it on the hickey for 10 to 30 minutes, 2-3 times.

Use A Warm Teabag – Damp, warm teabags help sooth the area & your post hickey nerves!

Orange – Drink fresh orange juice asap or apply an orange pack onto the affected area.

Hope/Homeopathy – Arnica taken within 24 hours can work wonders.

Okay it’s taking forever! Don’t fret, Let’s work on hiding it.

Make Up

First, use calamine lotion to protect the hickey. Then apply a yellow-based concealer, followed by green concealer to reduce redness. Apply foundation & blend. Finish with a loose powder. Voila!

If makeup isn’t your speed then try these low skill ideas:

  • Cover the hickey with your hair strategically.
  • Pull out those Indian suits from your cupboard for dupatta protection!

An Insect or Spider Bite – Hey! Who knows what kind of mutant bugs that we have today, it’s totally possible!

Squashed – Into sports? Easy peasy, say you were hit by a squash ball! Dab a little blue-green eyeshadow to make it more bruise like and lie away!

Taint the Paintball – Just say you were shot in the neck with a paintball, and now your skin is stained for a couple of days. (Okay, it’s not our best idea, we’re just trying to help!)

Blame the Burn – Do you use a curling iron? You were using the curling iron and accidentally got your neck burn – that’s your story. Learn it, Live it.

There, we’ve done all we could to help you with that hickey! Next time maybe just do it old school and give each other hiccups instead?

Just Saying 😇
