What is Face Cupping?

Face cupping, also known as facial cupping, has its origins in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and has been practiced for centuries. Cupping therapy, including face cupping, is believed to have originated in ancient Egypt, China, and the Middle East. Theface suction cups, typically made of silicone or glass, come in various sizes and create a vacuum effect when applied to the skin. This lifting action helps stimulate blood flow, leading to a number of otherfacial cupping benefits as well.


7 Ways Face Cupping Supports Skin Health  

If you're thinking about trying facial cupping or already a fan with your very ownLure Essentials GLAMface cupping set, here are six reasons that will keep you hooked on this beauty treatment:

  1. Improved Circulation: By creating suction,facial cupping promotes increased blood flow to the skin, ultimately enhancing circulation.
  2. Reduced Puffiness: Cupping aids in the drainage of fluids from the face, effectively reducing puffiness around the eyes and cheeks.
  3. Muscle Relaxation: Facial cupping helps to relax the face, neck, and shoulder muscles. This advantage proves especially valuable for individuals experiencing headaches, migraines, or temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues.
  4. Enhanced Collagen and Elastin Production:Cupping helps stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen is a protein responsible for the skin's strength and elasticity, while elastin allows the skin to bounce back after being stretched. By stimulating collagen and elastin production, face cupping helps improve skin firmness and elasticity, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  5. Improved Skin Tone & Texture: Cupping assists in eliminating toxins from the skin, resulting in an overall improvement in skin health.
  6. Stress Management:The suction involved in facial cupping induces a highly relaxing sensation, aiding in stress management.
  7. Enhanced Product Absorption: Face cupping can improve the absorption of skincare products. By creating microchannels on the skin's surface, it allows for better penetration of serums, moisturizers, and other products, maximizing their effectiveness and enhancing their benefits.
