1. Heat things up.
You already got hot in the bedroom — now bring that heat to your hickey! After twelve hours, your blood vessels will be healed. Get your circulation flowing by holding a warm towel or compress on the hickey. Your blood vessels will open and direct blood away from the scene.
2. Mend it with massage.
Everyone loves a massage, including your neck’s war wound. Apply gentle pressure to help break up the blood, then massage in a circle from the center, outward. Some people swear by massaging it with a toothbrush, comb, or coin to get more power, but that can be painful and hurt your skin. I’d recommend using it with your cold or hot compress instead.

3. Utilize your favorite winter wear.
If you have someplace to be and it’s not healing fast enough, you may find that you have to plan your wardrobe around your hickey. If it’s too warm for a turtle neck sweater or hoodie, opt for a nice scarf. If you have long hair, style it to cover your bruise. Of course, a neck brace could always help.
4. Brush It Out
One of the oldest and most frequently recommended methods of getting rid of a hickey is to brush or comb it out. There’s some dispute over whether or not this actually makes things worse, but the reasoning behind it is that if you’re able to break up those blood clots, it might make the affected area look less visible. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to gently stimulate the blood flow in that area to promote healing.
5. Paste it well
You can also take a chance by using some toothpaste on it. Gently rub a small amount of the toothpaste on it and leave it for a few minutes. It might tingle for a while, but once that stops, use a warm washcloth and gently rub it off. If the marks don’t subside within 24 hours repeat the process.
6. Cover it smartly
