How to get rid of a love bite?
1. Makeup :
Everyone nowadays is a make-up expert. So why not to use it in different ways. What do you do when you get an unwanted pimple on your face? Concealer! Yes. So if a concealer can hide that, it can hide your mark also.
Apply a good amount of concealer on the area and merge it properly with your skin.
Tip : use a concealer similar to your skin tone as you don’t want it to look different from the rest of your skin.
2. Remove it with toothpaste :
It’s actually a diy. It works for most people. Take a gentle amount of paste and rub it over the skin. Leave it for a few minutes then wash it with lukewarm water. Soothing effect of the paste will help in subsiding the mark. If Mark stays, repeat the procedure after 12hrs.
3. Aloe vera :
Aloe vera has soothing and anti-inflammatory effects, which when applied would do wonders. Take some amount of aloe vera gel on your hands and massage it over the area in clockwise motion. Repeat it several times in a day to speed up healing.
4. Ice pack or Spoon :
You can apply an ice-pack or cold spoon over the affected area. For a cold spoon, put the spoon in a refrigerator for 15min then take it out and place it over the affected area. Cooling effect would give you relief and less pain. Repeat the procedure and to get instant results, apply extra pressure on the spoon.
Use a brush, not a regular one but the one with soft bristles. Now rub the brush over the affected area in circular motion. This will increase the blood circulation and helps in subsiding the mark.
Don’t apply too much pressure. If you applied too much pressure and reddened the skin then apply an ice pack over it. But it’s better not to overdo.

I can understand these things require time and will take around 3-4 days. So why to make so much effort when you can simply hide it.
Wear those long turtle neck tops and sweaters and move around carefree.
