Put Down the Botox! Natural Anti-Aging with Cupping

I am fully aware that growing older is a privilege that not many have. What is most important to me is that I approach my self care holistically and as naturally as possible. Being pregnant, I had to change my skin care routine, as I couldn't use any of my usual heavy duty products. So I sought out natural ways to take care of my skin.

Discovering cupping, or actually re-discovering was serendipitous. My grandmother would use cupping to help sooth colds, chest congestion, and fever. She would wrap a fork with cotton, dip in alcohol, and light with a match. Then she would wave the flame inside of a small cup, then place on the skin. This makes life giving and healing blood, oxygen, and nutrients rush to the surface of the skin.

You’ve seen all the olympic athletes with the round bruises all over their bodies…same thing. Only much more gentle for the face!

Why cupping?

  • Increased blood circulation to head and neck stimulates collagen and elastin production

  • Increased circulation and absorption of nutrients to the skin

  • Improved absorption of facial products

  • Drainage of stagnant fluids produces a more youthful glow

  • Reduced puffiness and edema

  • Smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles

I recommends the Lure Spa Cupping Massage kit. It is under 30 Euro and worth every penny. It comes with various sizes to massage the cheeks, forehead, and eyes and detailed instructions. I use the face as well as the body kit.

I recommend 25 passes on each area in an upward direction. Will only take 3 minutes to do the entire face! 2-3 times a week is all that is needed and results are immediate, with long lasting benefits, lift and wrinkle release after 8-12 weeks. Bonus is that it is also very soothing for tension headaches, especially when used with an essential oil. I recommend Immortelle by Doterra.

The results speak for themselves, and if you don’t believe me, the proof is in the pudding!

Let me know what you think and how your results are going! Click the pics for more info.

Lots of love,
