- Wet a spoon and put it in the freezer for 20 minutes. Take it out and lay it over the hickey. It will drastically decrease in colour and size.
- Remove the peel from a ripe banana and cover the hickey with the inside of the peel for 30 minutes. This works likes a cooling treatment and can be repeated throughout the day.
- Pull your skin taut, turn a coin on it’s side, then use it to gently rub the hickey. Make sure it moves from the centre, outwards. Do this for 5 minutes and repeat where necessary.
- Apply peppermint oil on the affected skin area and let it sit. Don’t do this more than twice a day, as it can cause irritation. You can also use toothpaste as a substitute.
