Face Cupping The New Facelift?

Facelifts can be life changing, but getting surgery or under the needle can be unnerving. So, there should be some non-surgical, non-invasive ways to get a facelift, right? Well, kind of. If you know the right way to do it!
Pre-wedding prep is a task and we hear you! So along with your facials, spa days, immaculate skin care routines and mani-pedis, squeeze some time in for a simple routine to get the facelift you’ve always wanted, without the needles or surgical knives. 
So what’s this alternative everyone’s raving about? Face Cupping! Yep, that’s right. 

Face cupping is an old tradition that comes from the Asian sub continent. At the same time, it’s as scientific as it can get, while keeping it simple. It involves using small cups of glass or silicone to create suction on your skin which you can find online at reasonable prices or get a face cupping massage at a salon. 

It really is that easy. And we know you have questions, but we’re here to help. Here’s everything you need to know about face cupping.


How does face cupping give me a face lift?

Well, this ancient tradition helps your skin by creating a suction which works into the depths of your skin and muscles. It improves blood flow to the surface area of your skin and the tissue around it, causing your skin to glow and clear out. 

It essentially stimulates the production of new blood vessels. Not just that, it also helps relieve muscle tension and helps with cell regeneration. This in turn, slows down the aging process by reducing puffiness, wrinkles, and fine lines. At the same time, it also helps tighten your skin and gives it a more lifted look. And all this is exactly what a face lift does!


How Do I Use The Face Cupping Method?

If you’re doing this for the first time, here’s some things to remember. Dry skin isn’t a friend of this method, generously apply face oil or serum to reduce friction between the cup and your skin. Make sure that your cup is pressed flat against your skin to achieve the right kind of suction. Slowly glide the cup upwards and towards your forehead. 
Focus on your cheekbones, below your eyes and under your chin to get a more sculpted look. While this is a great method, too much of anything isn’t good. Be careful with your pressure, face cupping isn’t bruise prone unless you apply too much pressure. And, just two days a week will get the job done, over-cupping can cause sagging eventually.
