Are you looking for a way to detoxify your skin and achieve a young, natural glow without spending $1,000s on procedures and treatments which may or may not work? Try cupping. Although cupping is usually associated with athletes and Hollywood A-listers focusing on the shoulders, back, and larger muscles in the body, it can also be used on the face to massage this region. When done on the face, obviously, less suction and less pressure is needed. This is called facial cupping.
What are the benefits of facial cupping?
Facial cupping is a gentle and effective technique for patients looking to give their faces something pleasant, detoxifying, and non-invasive. In certain people, cupping has been shown to help heal acne scars and blemishes on the face, prevent acne in some cases through increased lymphatic drainage and increased blood circulation, and prevent wrinkles. Young people use it, as do seniors. Unlike other treatments which can be far more expensive and complicated, cupping massage therapy has no risks and uses no chemicals.
Facial cupping has also been shown to reduce puffiness in the face, eliminate dark under-eye circles, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles specifically around the eyes, forehead, and mouth. Immediately following a treatment, you’ll also notice a more toned, even, and clear appearance. All in all, it’s a safe and effective treatment. All you need is a silicone cupping set which thankfully, if you purchase one for yourself, allows you to use it wherever and whenever.
What does silicone cupping do?
Cups used in facial cupping are generally a little smaller than average cups you’d find in a cupping kit meant for the body. That said, facial cups can be applied – and are commonly applied by women – anywhere on the body. Many report back suggesting their cupping set’s helped them with reducing the appearance of cellulite, reducing spider veins, toning loose skin, and even helping with congested sinuses.
After you have your jade soft cupping set, you can begin on your journey with facial cupping. Twenty minutes is all it takes to get your skin naturally glowing. You may wish to start with an cleanser to wash away any dead skin and get your face ready. Then, use the cups to apply the gentlest suction to your skin. This will increase blood flow, increase collagen and elastic production, increase lymphatic drainage momentarily, and bring skin toxins to the surface allowing them to be processed by the body.
Surely, you’ll see differences after a single session but it’s really through repeated uses that you’ll find the biggest changes in your skin. Some have even said it’s helped them reduce the appearance of pores and other signs of aging. In case you’re wondering, facial cupping does not leave any bruises or round cupping marks on the face. It also doesn’t hurt. All you have to really do is stay still, ensure the cups have been properly applied and then, 20 minutes later – voila!
