This plant has calming and soothing properties that can help in reducing the redness of your skin and inflammation. You can seize the magnificent properties of aloe vera in several ways. One popular hickeys treatment is massaging hickeys with an aloe vera moisturizer. But the more efficient way is to use a fresh leaf of the aloe vera plant. Cut the leaf open and take out the aloe vera gel, which is also available in stores if you cannot find a fresh one. Then, apply the gel over the love bite and leave it as long as you can (as aloe vera can do no harm to your skin). For best results, repeat this process multiple times a day.
Use a Toothbrush
This is the most popular treatment for hickeys and there’s an army of lovers that can confirm the claim.

Unlike most home remedies for hickies, scraping is really painful. However, it does provide great results in getting rid of hickeys if properly done. To scrape your hickey away, you will need a coin. The first step is stretching the skin around the hickey by pulling the skin away from the affected area on both sides. Then, start scraping moving the coin just like you use to spread butter to bread, spreading outwards. You need to press as hard as you can take, in order to push the clotted blood away from the surface skin. Once you’re done, your skin will hurt a bit, but it will fade a lot faster than the hickey would have.
