At-Home Anti-Aging Cupping Treatments

If you have heard of cupping before, it was likely in the entertainment news –  celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston, as well as Olympic swimmer, Michael Phelps rave about its ability to detoxify and treat sore muscles. Cupping is a form of alternative medicine, dating back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures, in which a therapist puts special “cups” typically made of glass or silicone on your skin to create a suction. The cups are typically left place for 5+ minutes. The suction applies negative pressure to the treated area and is said to help with pain, blood flow, inflammation and overall well-being. The treatment can leave round red/bruise-like marks as a result from blood rising to the skin’s surface. The marks can last a week or longer.

Now, you can experience the benefits of cupping at-home (without the marks and for a significantly lower cost) by using Lure Essentials GLAM Face Cupping Facial Kit ($30). The kit includes to two face (larger) silicone facial cups and two eye (smaller) cups, as well as an antimicrobial brush for cleansing or exfoliating. With regular use, the kit helps to lift, tone and sculpt the face, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles being minimized and stimulate collagen. The at-home treatment only takes less than 10 minutes as the cups do not remain stationary on the skin, but are used to massage the skin after being placed.
