Surprising Benefits of Facial Cupping Massage
Cupping has been around for thousands of years, since Egyptian times to be specific. In the recent years however, we have all heard of athletes, celebrities and models swearing by this non invasive holistic cupping treatment! So what is facial cupping? How does cupping work and does it have noticeable results?
What Is Face Cupping?
Facial cups (more often made of silicone) are suctioned on to the skin creating a negative pressure which separates your 7 skin layers. The point of the massage is to move the cups around the face and as you’re gliding them you are creating a lymphatic drainage. The technique is so simple but results are shockingly effective!
- Brighten the skin
- Stimulate your cells to produce and secrete collagen
- Diminish fine lines
- Prevent & treat acne
- Reduce hyperpigmentation
- Reduce acne scars
- Reduce pore size
- Firm and tone and lift your skin
Overall it’s like a super DIY facial, any time from the comfort of your home.
Does Facial Cupping Leave Bruises? & What’s The Difference Between Face & Body Cupping?
Face and body cupping are different. During body cupping the cups do not move and remain stationary for a period of time of anti aging, this is when bruising occurs. During face cupping massage, you apply a serum or oil, then non stop move or glide the cups ‘massaging’ the face. Because of this constant movement – you do not get facial bruising.
How Should I Prepare My Skin For Face Cupping?
Drink plenty of fluids, and use a lot of serum or oil like this one, so the cups glide smoothly.
