How To Get Rid Of Hickeys Overnight

Cold spoon or  Compress

Place a spoon in a freezer or fridge for 30 minutes. Then, apply it directly to the spot. Leave it for 10 minutes, and repeat several times through the first 48 hours or until it begins to lighten. If you have an ice pack, you can do the same. A washcloth dampened with cold water is also a good option.

Aloe vera pulp

The thick, gelatinous pulp inside an aloe vera leaf may reduce  skin swelling, and pain.  Apply a thin layer of the pulp directly to the bruise two times per day. If the pulp causes irritation or your skin seems sensitive to it, stop using it.

Peppermint oil

This essential oil, whose main component is menthol, may help stimulate blood flow where it’s applied, which could speed up bruise healing.But peppermint oil can also irritate skin. You’ll need to dilute it with a carrier oil. A ratio of 1 or 2 drops peppermint oil to 15 drops of carrier oil, such as jojoba or almond oil, is recommended.

Cocoa butter

Cocoa butter may also help with skin elasticity, which may improve appearance. Apply the thick cream to the area one to two times per day. Don’t use a lot of pressure, or you risk making the bruise bigger.


Pineapple is rich with a type of enzyme called bromelain. It’s been known to reduce pain and soreness, and when applied to skin, it may help ease ease inflammation and swelling.

Vitamin K cream

Vitamin K plays a role in helping your blood clot properly. In cream form, it may speed up bruise healing. Apply vitamin K cream directly to the skin one to two times per day.

Banana peel

You can apply the peel directly to your hickey, and it may help reduce signs of bruising and irritation. Leave the peel in place for up to 30 minutes, or until the banana peel turns brown.  You can do this two to three times per day, but stop using it if your skin becomes irritated.

Vitamin C cream

Vitamin C may be best known for its ability to boost the immune system, but it also plays a vital role in the production of collagen, a protein that helps skin stay strong and gives it its elasticity.  Applying a vitamin C cream directly to the bruise may also speed up skin healing and eliminate the bruise quickly.
