We are constantly on the hunt for the latest non-invasive secret facial treatments, for those unknown magical techniques that only a few have the fortune to experience first-hand, and for all those small but oh-so-efficient gestures that have the power to give immediate results to our skin. And we love to make them accessible to all of you, because what’s a beauty secret if not sneakily shared with your besties?
Well, today’s revelation is something you may have already heard of but maybe, you’ve been scared to try, or simply, you haven’t quite grasped so gave up only at the thought of it.
We get you. At first, the idea of drawing your whole face with the suction of specific cups doesn’t sound that glamourous. But don’t be scared by the thought of it, as this practice has been used since ancient times and it’s one of the easiest and most efficient techniques to achieve immediate results.
We’re all striving for that immediate face lift, aren’t we? Today’s love letter uncovers all the virtues of the perfect lymphatic massage featuring the use of a facial cupping set!
But first, what exactly is cupping? Cupping is an ancient Chinese form of therapy in which a practitioner places dome-like suction cups (typically made of glass) on your skin. This deep-tissue massage can be done all over the body and it’s meant to increase blood flow and therefore reduce inflammation, activate lymphatic drainage, ail digestive problems, prevent acne, and heal chronic pain or soreness. These movements allow oxygenated blood to penetrate the tissues.
Facial cupping is done by applying lighter motions with small suction glass cups all over the face: they work to plump the skin, while softening lines, wrinkles, and puffiness. Facial cupping additionally contributes to lift sagging facial muscles and reduce headaches and sinus congestion by pulling blood into the fascial area below the surface of the skin, creating new vessel formation which helps with tissue generation.
However, it is really important to control the sucking action and not apply too much suction power, otherwise you may end up with marks and bruises. You can do your facial cupping self-treatment at least twice a week for 10-15 minutes, and for maximum glide and smoothness always apply a face oil or essence.
