    make so many hickeys that your whole neck is red and you can say it's a skin condition like a sun burn....

    Really the only way is time to let the bruises heal, and concealer.

    ^ a couple of days

    oh man, awhile ago one of my friends was like, "I heard that it goes away faster if you brush it with a hair brush. That makes sense bc, if you think about it, a hickey is just all of the skin sucked together...so you gotta brush it out." ahahaha yeah it was probably one of the stupidest things that I've ever heard but I loved it

    Maybe try aloe vera? It works on other irritated skin.

    makeup sounds like a good plan. also try a bandaid and say you burned yourself with a hair straightener or something

    Yeah, make-up helps a lot. Some people say a cold spoon, but I don't think it really works.

    wear a turtle neck and keep vampires away from your neck for 8 days.
    try wearing cloves of garlic around your neck the next time someone comes at your neck with puckered lips

    hahahaha vampires... i like the hair straightener burn idea
  • kk06kk06 Registered User Posts: 554 Member
    the cold spoon deal only works to take the 'red' out when a hickey is fresh...and is very temporary.

    Try green concealer, then cover the green with normal concealer.

    The upside is that it really covers anything that might be wrong with you. The downside is that it can look like you tried to concealer over a bruise - and it looks like your boyfriend is beating you, not kissing you...

    ...which is why I recommend the time-tested method of wearing a silk scarf around one's neck.

    ^ creepy

    at sleepaway camp people used to wet an aspirin and rub it on them..apparently it works

    massaging bruises helps them go away faster, really,. it breaks up the blood vessels...or something.

    haha yesterday my friend got two huge ones, one on each side of her neck. so classy.

    so, makeup, bandaid, rubbing (it doesn't matter what you rub it with--people say aspirin, erasers, etc). i've also heard that applying a heated cloth makes it go away.
