Facial & LIP Cupping!
Cupping is one of those trends that we cannot help but wonder -- DOES IT REALLY WORK?? And ... WHY would someone WANT TO DO THIS?!! But for some reason, celebs swear by it -- and so do many Olympic athletes. BUT on YOUR FACE?!! WOULD YOU DARE?!!
Here's what WebMD says about CUPPING...
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
BUT ON YOUR FACE??? YUP. :)
When I first heard about FACIAL CUPPING, I was horrified. But then I was like, "I have GOT TO TRY THIS." I was told it DID NOT leave any marks -- but it DID LEAVE YOU looking and feeling refreshed - YOUNGER. Hook, line and sinker. Anything to de-puffify (I realize this is NOT a real word...) my face and smooth out those fine lines and ever-deepening wrinkles. (Getting older is awesome.) Plus, no needles involved. For me, testing out this trend was a no-brainer.
My friend and facialist, Kat Rudu has mastered the facial cupping technique. She invited me to her Venice, CA studio for a session...Little did I know she was about to CHANGE EVERYTHING FOR ME! She does LIP CUPPING too!! WHAT?!! It's all just too much. I LOVE LIP CUPPING. LOVE it. Soon, Kat will be selling her mini lip cupping kits, and you better believe that I will be FIRST IN LINE.
Watch Kat work her magic on my lips. And this was only a few-minute session! Imagine after 20 minutes!!! I cannot. I cannot. AHHHHH!!!
