Facial Cupping Massage: the anti-ageing treatment celebs love
In this high-tech era, it’s comforting to know that sometimes the best things in life are tech-free and facial cupping massage and cupping therapy are some of those well-kept Ancient secrets.
Cupping therapy dates back to ancient Egypt, Asia and the Middle East. It is a form of holistic and alternative medicine in which (heated)or suction-pumped glass domes are used to pull up and stimulate the body tissue beneath.
Heated cups may leave some temporary marks on your body. Bad circulation is the onset for disease in our body. In face-cupping massage, no heat is applied.
The benefits of facial cupping massage and cupping therapy
In general, cupping therapy helps stimulate blood flow, stretches our fascia tissues, reduces inflammation, activates lymphatic drainage and relieves everything from muscle pain to poor circulation.
Improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, release toxins, combat cellulite and much more
Cupping helps bring freshly oxygenated blood to the area, improves circulation, helps release toxins, and improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, cellulite and much more.
Restore your skin and a sculptured, toned look without plastic surgery
Facial cupping massage also helps increase the diffusion and receptivity of skin cell nutrients, restores new skin and gives you a sculpted, lifted look with frequent use.
Cupping therapy is used by many holistic MD and facialists and cosmetologists
Body cupping therapy is not just a fad, but is a therapy used by many holistic MD’s and holistic practitioners. Facial cupping massage is used by the better cosmetologist and facialists who wants the best results for his or her clients.
A nice side-effect is that it is very relaxing so an ideal method to apply before going to bed, however, very deep relaxation is harder to achieve when you apply the therapy at home.
Maximum results with minimum efforts with facial cupping massage
Facial cupping therapy visibly helps reduces fine lines and wrinkles, helps increase collagen and elastin production, improves facial contours, plumps up skin tissues and increases the effectiveness of your daily skincare products in as little as 3 to 5 minutes a day. (You could repeat it also twice a day if your schedule permits)
Regular facial cupping massage increases the suppleness of the skin; shrinks pores and helps soften scar tissues.
You can also introduce your home-made essential oil skin blends with essential oils to help increase the effectiveness of the facial cupping massage.
Make your own moisturising anti-ageing serum to use during your facial cupping massage
Giving up on all toxic chemicals was a big step forward in my health care routine. This includes my daily skin care products. I make a lot of serums myself and I also use a lot of Tata Harper skincare products.
Whenever you purchase essential oils, be sure to pick the highest quality oils you can get your hands on and dilute them with non-comedogenic carrier oils to the dilution % you would like to work with
Why I use anti-ageing essential oils on a daily basis
I also use essential oils for household, as sanitisers, as flu warriors, and health ailments.
Essential oils are chemical-free, effective, efficient, dynamic and they create a fantastic wellness experience! And as a bonus, they smell and feel heavenly! I love using anti-ageing essential oils on a daily basis for my skin, hair and body care routines.
My favourite anti-ageing essential oil serum I use daily and also for my facial cupping massage
Chamomile helps add shine and softness and improves youthful looks. Chamomile treats inflammation and restores the skin to a healthy state. On top of that, it has a beautiful sweet, herbaceous aroma.
Copaiba oil contains astringent properties that can tighten the skin, leaving it looking and feeling younger and smoother.
Sandalwood is used for a range of ailments and health and beauty fixes.
Frankincense oil promotes regeneration of healthy cells and when you combine this with its powerful astringent capabilities, you have a potent anti-ageing solution.
Combat premature ageing with geranium essential oil. Geranium rose oil is also packed with antioxidants, which can help reverse cellular skin damage and prevent premature ageing.
Bulgarian rose smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles. Use Rose essential oil on mature skin as it smoothes wrinkles, improves facial contours, skin elasticity and firmness.
Combine these anti-ageing essential oils for plump skin with a few carrier oils such as jojoba, rosehip oil, emu oil and carrot seed oil in your blend.
I make my blend usually in a 3 to 5 % dilutions and these oils combine so well together.
One of the things on my list is to order glassware cuppings that I can connect to my ozone generator. This would help increase the anti-ageing and improved blood flow effects even more.
Facial cupping massage method
- Start by deeply cleansing your skin with cleanser.
- Rinse well
- Apply your favourite serum or moisturiser to face, neck and Décolletage
- Squeeze the cup to create gentle suction and glide over the area you wish to treat.
- You may also wish to choose the squeeze and release method (flush cupping)
- For optimal results try to maintain at least 5 minutes 3 to 4 times a week.
- Clean thoroughly after use, and I personally don’t like to share my cuppings with anyone.
Several celebs amongst Kim Kardashian, Kate Beckinsale, and others are getting their faces suctioned for younger-looking skin. Many professional athletes are using cupping therapy as a new way of healing the body and improving skin tone.
Unlike body cupping, Facial cupping massage is not leaving any bruises post-treatment and is the ideal non-surgical skin treatment that can also help delay the more invasive skin procedures.
