What Is Facial Cupping? Benefits, Risks, and Your How-To Guide

Facial cupping is a fast, reliable method to rejuvenate skin with minimal effort and no risks. Done regularly as a part of one’s skincare regimen, facial cupping can help plump skin to make your face appear more youthful and vibrant.

Facial cupping continues to explode in growth with year-over-year interest having grown significantly in the pandemic as more people have sought to turn their own bathrooms into mini-spas.

If you’re thinking about picking up some facial cupping sets for your loved on Valentine's Day, here’s what to know.

What Is Facial Cupping?

Facial cupping is adapted from the practice of cupping, a traditional Chinese therapy used to heal the body. Standard cupping is typically done on the back and improves circulation while relieving tension.

Adapted for facial use, the effects are similar though it’s a lot gentler and the cups themselves are smaller.

Benefits Of Facial Cupping

Effective facial cupping can produce several benefits. Predominantly, it’s used to relieve stress and tension in the face, essentially forcing the facial muscles to let go of stress and relax. Many people also use facial cupping to help with the appearance of scars and wrinkles.

Albeit temporarily, facial cupping also brightens the skin. The circulation and movement of new blood into the area generally make the face look more attractive. This is also a way to tone the chin, neck, and jawline, and decrease puffiness.

Lastly, facial cupping can be used to improve nutrient delivery to the skin and help with product absorption.

Risks Of Facial Cupping

The only risks of facial cupping are minor and temporary in nature. You may leave bruises behind if you leave the silicone cup on the skin for too long. It is not recommended to use cupping on broken or inflamed skin, rashes, or sores.

Besides these risks, there aren’t very many side effects to this type of cupping when done right.

How To Do Facial Cupping

Your how-to guide for facial cupping is simple, straightforward, and intuitive. Here’s what to do.

  • Wash your face and pat it dry.
  • Before reaching for your facial cupping set like Jade Soft®'s Glass Facial Cupping Set, you may want to briefly massage the face with your hands to manually loosen up the muscles.

  • This is optional but you can apply a light layer of facial oil or moisturizer to decrease the risk of bruising.
  • Start your facial cupping by applying a small cup on your chin and then, around your mouth.
  • Leave the silicone cups on for a few seconds and then move upward. Keep going until you reach your hairline.
  • Afterward, cleanse your face and pat it dry.

Though there are specific techniques you can use, this is a fairly safe and basic facial cupping routine. After you are done cupping, you can proceed with your skincare regimen, applying moisturizers, serums, and/or any other products you may be using.
