What if my friend or my foe made a big cross on my cheek with a permanent marker? How can I remove that big stubborn sign from my face?

  • Add a cross to your other cheek and tell everyone it's intentional. – BrettFromLA Mar 10 '16 at 21:02
  • As a hack you could switch faces with your friend. – Captain Obvious Mar 13 '16 at 19:22
  • @CaptainObvious I have seen some part of the movie. I don't want to go through such a process. – Aman Mar 14 '16 at 1:16

There's many options that will work. I'll name some:

  • Soap in combination with water
  • Anti-bug spray (use it on your hand or a towel and then rub your face)
  • Suncream (or spray works also)
  • Those small wet baby-cloths (clean your skin with hot water afterwards)
  • Isopropyl Alcohol
  • Nail polish or Acetone (on a towel and rub, clean it with hot water afterwards)
  • Toothpaste (white and not in gel form, these don't work as good as others)
  • Butter, put some butter on a piece of cloth and rub it on your skin.
  • Water & Salt (not going to explain because it's the least comfortable and you don't want this, also takes up to 10 minutes)
  • Coconut oil (Hot water + soap, rub it on your skin and then apply the oil)

Most efficient:

The most effective way would probably be using the hot water + soap first, and then apply the coconut oil. Rub it in and wash it off. If it isn't gone within 2 - 3 minutes then apply some Isopropyl Alcohol.
