Awards season is in full swing for Hollywood. With a little less than a week remaining before the Oscars, celebrities are preparing their acceptance speeches, picking out their outfits, and ensuring they'll look their best. In respect to the latter, how could these gorgeous celebrities ensure they look even better than they already do? The answer, according to Kathryn Romeyn of the Hollywood Reporter, is the ancient art of facial cupping.
Dr. Harold Lancer, a Beverly Hills dermatologist, has been very busy in the last few months and can probably expect to remain busy during the next few weeks. He has been using facial cupping, which is believed to have its origins in traditional Chinese medicine, to help some of Hollywood's most famous actresses prepare for the Awards season. How much do they pay for this privilege? Around $5,000 to $10,000 a season; presumably a small price to pay for everlasting beauty.
The practice of cupping has really been in the spotlight the past year or two. Many of us remember, for instance, the Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps with the red marks on his body last summer. Cupping is known to offer not only therapeutic, but anti-aging effects, among many other amazing properties. But does it actually work? What are its benefits?
The answer to the question "does it actually work?" is a resounding "YES!” This is why Hollywood celebrities and professional athletes turn to cupping and to this modality’s endless benefits. Cupping works by creating suction on the skin, which increases blood flow to the specific regions being treated. This increases circulation, softens tight muscles, and helps to drain excess lymph.
So what about the fabled anti-aging properties of cupping, though? Cupping certainly helps a face to remain younger-looking and vital, and this is why the actresses preparing for the Oscars turn to cupping before the big night. We mentioned above that cupping can help to drain excess lymph. This, for instance, can keep a face youthful by "debloating" puffy, saggy-looking eyes and the rest of the face. By increasing blood flow to the surface of the skin, cupping helps to get rid of lines, wrinkles, stretch marks and scar tissue. The technique also helps clean and reduce appearance of pores. It really is a deep, holistic cleansing process!
