Mini Mathur often shares her beauty tips and tricks on social media with her fans. And if you are one among her 501K followers — you’d know how much she loves massaging tools. Recently, she shared how she is “obsessed with facial cupping these days” in her Instagram stories.
If you are wondering what exactly is facial cupping, here’s what you need to know.
What is facial cupping?
A massaging technique which is excellent if you are wanting to make your skin glow and look plump, the cupping technique works on the principle of suction. When parts of your face get sucked by a little cup that clings on to the same, it increases the flow of blood generously. As per Healthline, it “may help relieve muscle tension, promote cell repair, and aid in other regeneration.”
If the thought of your face getting sucked by little cups makes you think that it will leave marks behind, worry not! It is highly suggested that you do not practise this technique on the bare face, but rather massage your face lightly with a facial oil. Here is how you can choose the right facial oil as per your skin type.
Take a look at the video below to know how can you incorporate cupping your skincare routine.
