Beauty is a billion-dollar industry and the market is teeming with products that promise to give you anything from a fairer skin to a radiant glow to a younger look. But most of these products are laden with chemicals that may do more harm than good in the long run. That is why, many people now look at traditional and ancient beauty practices that offer a natural way to radiant beauty. Cultures around the world have used beauty therapies since ancient times. Most of these are proven and the results are often amazing. One such procedure is facial cupping. It has now caught the attention of beauty enthusiasts and the results are just amazing.

What cupping does for you

Cupping is an ancient therapy that uses suction cups on skin to promote circulation and sooth muscles. It is used for the whole body. But you can use it specifically for the face too. In facial cupping, small suction cups are place on your facial skin and then glided over your entire face. This increases the flow of oxygen to the facial skin and gives you a radiant glow. It generates a vacuum for facial tissue rejuvenation and boosts collagen levels by stimulating skin cells. It tones your facial skin and makes it smooth. This procedure can even fade away fine lines and wrinkles and give your skin a healthy and natural glow.

Side-effects of facial cupping therapy

This is a relatively safe procedure with very few side-effects. But some people may experience side-effects like dizziness, nausea, slight burns or bruises and cold sweats. You may also experience adverse reactions if you perform this procedure on injured, burnt or broken skin. People with sensitive skin may also suffer an allergic reaction. It is always better to consult a dermatologist before starting this procedure to be on the safe side.
