What is Facial Cupping?

Picture this: tiny cups gently gliding across your face, creating a vacuum effect that boosts circulation and promotes lymphatic drainage. That's facial cupping in a nutshell! This technique, rooted in traditional Chinese medicine, involves using specialized cups to massage the skin, resulting in a plethora of skincare benefits.

How to Do Facial Cupping:

  1. Prep Your Skin: Start by cleansing your face with a gentle cleanser to remove any dirt or makeup residue. Pat your skin dry with a soft towel.

  2. Apply Oil: Next, apply a facial oil to create a smooth surface for the cups to glide across. Opt for lightweight oils like the Ruby Facial Oil from ISUN.

  3. Choose Your Cups: Select silicone facial cups in various sizes to target different areas of your face effectively. Remember, the smaller cups are perfect for delicate areas like the under-eye area, while larger cups are ideal for the cheeks and forehead.

  4. Create Suction: Squeeze the cup and place it on your skin, then release to create suction. Glide the cup across your face using gentle, upward strokes, following the contours of your face. Repeat this process for 5-10 minutes, focusing on areas of tension or puffiness.

  5. Finish with Skincare: Once you've completed your facial cupping session, follow up with your regular skincare routine. Apply a moisturizer to lock in hydration and keep your skin looking dewy and radiant.

Benefits of Facial Cupping:

  • Improved Circulation: Facial cupping promotes blood flow to the skin, delivering essential nutrients and oxygen for a healthy, radiant complexion.

  • Lymphatic Drainage: By stimulating the lymphatic system, facial cupping helps flush out toxins and reduce puffiness, leaving your skin looking refreshed and rejuvenated.

  • Tension Relief: Say goodbye to tension headaches and jaw clenching! Facial cupping can help relax facial muscles, relieving stress and promoting overall relaxation.

  • Enhanced Absorption: The gentle suction created during facial cupping can enhance the absorption of skincare products, allowing them to penetrate deeper into the skin for maximum efficacy.

  • Natural Facelift: Who needs Botox when you have facial cupping? This non-invasive technique can help firm and tone the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time.
