Face and Eye Cupping: At-Home Cupping Massage Therapy
I’m so excited to share this at-home cupping therapy that offers so many benefits, from depuffing your eyes to reduce fine lines, double chin, and even help relieve sinus congestion.
I’ll show you what it is and how it works.
Check out the videos below.
What is a cupping massage
Facial cupping is a very old anti-aging facial massage therapy that’s been around for a long time (over 5,000 years) and has been very popular in Asia, the Middle East and Egypt.
By using small hand-squeezable cups (made from medical grade silicone) you vacuum and massage your face, eyes, neck, chin, and chest to help invigorate aging skin and firm and soothe facial muscles.
Is cupping painful
No! In fact, it feels wonderful. Face and neck cupping is soothing and stimulating at the same time. You’ll get addicted to at-home cupping massages once you start. 😊
What does cupping do
The cups help create a negative pressure on the skin (like a vacuum effect) stimulating circulation, promoting lymphatic draining and massaging the skin and underlying muscles all at the same time.
HOW TO DO CUPPING:
It’s easy, simply apply moisturizer or oil on a clean face.
Then squeeze the Bellabaci cup and place on the skin and gently slid the cup in a circular motion around the face, moving downward and out.
The negative vacuum pressure caused by the squeezed cup drains excess fluids and toxins.
It also helps loosen adhesions, lifts connective tissue and brings healthy blood flow to stagnant muscles and dull skin.
When skin is stuck down onto the underlying muscle, it looks like a wrinkle. Loosening and lift the skin can help reduce the depth and appearance of the wrinkle.
How to do face and eye cupping at home
I like to use the smaller cups (called Bambino) because you can get in and around the delicate eye, crow’s feet, and lip area.
Short on time?
If you’re short on time, you can perform a quick anti-aging Facial Cupping Massage that’s deeply soothing anytime you want!
Just make sure you apply a good quality oil or face cream before cupping.
You can do cupping therapy:
- while lying in bed
- watching television
- even in the shower with your facial cleanser
A quick face cupping massage can be in the morning right after moisturizing your face or anytime you need a little pickup.
I love to do a quick “wake up your skin” massage first thing in the morning after I wash my face or after a shower. I like this time frame for several reasons:
- it helps depuff my face and especially my eyes
- helps your skin absorb your moisturizer better
- gives my skin a beautiful rosy glow
- it’s a great way to start the day and wake up my skin
Facial cupping benefits
See the benefits of face cupping in just minutes.
You don’t need to spend hours to get anti-aging benefits from face cupping.
A quick massage takes only a few minutes a day can help reduce facial puffiness, stimulate natural collagen production and help drain sinuses and congestion.
When cupping my face, one of my favorite places to concentrate on is under my double chin area.
While face cupping massage won’t reduce body fat, it does reduce some bloating which gives the whole area a smoother more toned appearance.
Where to buy at-home, spa quality face and eye cups
Bellabaci International is the creator of the hand-squeezable silicon cupping massage system.
At one time, the Bellabaci silicone cupping set was only available at select luxury spas worldwide.
But now you can purchase the original Bellabaci at-home cupping kit directly from the company – as I do.
Cupping therapy benefits
The benefits of face and eye cupping therapy include:
- reduce wrinkles and lines
- firm and tone skin and muscle
- help clear out and reduce pore size
- help reduce puffy eyes
- increase blood circulation
- soften stretch marks and scar tissue
Facial cupping before and after
Spending 2-5 minutes in the morning or night before bed does wonders for the skin.
But when time allows, and you desire a more intense, deeper massage for a thorough at-home facial rejuvenation treatment,
Here is great and easy massage therapy to try!
Notice her before and after results and how glowing her skin looks!
This face and eye cup therapy involves 3 steps:
1. The slide
2. The pulse
3. The circle
This type of cupping therapy really helps get the blood flowing and works especially well on reducing excess facial fluid to reduce puffy eyes and droopy double chin.
What got me excited about face and eye cupping therapy is that may help reduce puffiness of the face -and eyes- by increasing lymphatic drainage.
And I’m all about reducing puffy eyes because that’s an area of concern for me and has been for over 25 years.
Anti-aging benefits of body cupping
Face and eye cupping therapy has been known to help clean and tighten pores, and firm and tone skin and facial muscles.
But there are multiple benefits to massage and cupping therapy for the whole body – especially for bloated tummies and cellulite.
Bellabaci makes a body massaging cupping set which can be used for cellulite reduction besides sore muscles and aches.
The massage cups for body massage are bigger and firmer with a stronger vacuum suction than cups used for the face and eyes.
Body cupping massage therapy is helpful for improving pain, inflammation and cellulite…depending on how you use it. Body cups are larger and have stronger suction than the face and eye cups. You can view them here.
NOTE: Unlike body cupping using heat and glass body cups, the Bellabaci Face-Eye Cupping therapy is gentle and should not leave bruises your face. Although your face might have a beautiful rosy-glow due to an increase in blood circulation.
