Facial cupping is taking the health and beauty world by storm! High profile celebrities like Jennifer Aniston and Kate Beckinsale have been indulging in these luxurious treatments to get ready for the red carpet – and before shooting films.
Silicone cupping doesn’t just make your face look better – it feels great, too. Beckinsale describes the treatments as “like sending your face on vacation, finding it a boyfriend and buying it a really great dinner." Silicone cups are great for tightening your pores, lifting your face and improving your complexion – they can also help relieve muscular tensions, headaches and inflammation. Practitioners have used them for anything from aculifting to lymphatic drainage. You don’t need to spend thousands of dollars on a high-end spa treatment to reap the benefits of facial silicone cupping, though. All you need is a bit of oil and your own silicone cupping set! Facial cups are easy to use, and you can master the technique in less than five minutes.
The smallest silicone cups are great for working around the eyes, where they can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and dark circles. Larger cups will do wonders to tighten your jaw line, brighten your cheeks and highlight your cheekbones.
Scared of cupping marks? You don’t have to be! Massaging your face with silicone cups won’t leave any unsightly discolorations as long as you make sure to keep the cups moving.
