Well, the home remedies are effective ways to heal a hickey but may take some time to completely zap a love bite. There are some tips you can try to hide your hickey or make it look less like a hickey, so that nobody can guess for sure what the colored blooming’s are?

  • Makeup is a creative way to hide a hickey but you need to be extra wise in selecting the right shades and in right way, as not to make it more visible or noticeable. To conceal the redness of a hickey, a green shade can be used. A yellow foundation can be applied on top to hide a purple hickey, as well as, to prevent reflection of the lining. A peach concealer can nix a yellow hickey. Choose shade according to the color of the hickey and finish with applying loose powder to give it a natural look.

Similarly, tying scarfs, bandana or mufflers around the neck, cannot just look trendy and glamorous but can hide a hickey too. But remember, clothes should be selected keeping the weather in mind or you end up grabbing more attention which can embarrass you as well.

  • If you have long hair, you can use them to hide a love bite, but it can only be used for a shorter period of time.
  • Apply vitamin K based lotion or cream on the hickey several times a day.
