Are you a lucky new owner of a spectacular set of Bellabaci Facial Cups, our hand-squeezed vacuum suction cups based on the treatment successes of Ancient Chinese Cupping? If you are new to our website, you may be wondering what is the best way to get the most out of your fabulous Facial Cup set. Some may find it intimidating at first, and put them on the shelf for a while. Don’t! You will find the steps so easy after reading this article, that you will be a Bellabaci guru in no time!
The most important thing to discuss, is that there are 3 main ways to implement your facial cup set into your skin care regime. We suggest that you try them all, before you pick your favorite. Everyone has a method that suits their lifestyle best and we are here to help you find yours!
Here they are, hold on to your Facial Cups!
- Double Cleansing – It is an ancient method to cleanse your skin twice. The first cleanse removes make-up and debris. The second cleanses you pores deep down. We recommend to use your facial cups during the first cleanse to help loosen any congestion and make your second cleanse with your chosen facial wash more effective. You can use a gel or cream cleanser, whichever is best suited to your skin type.
- Exfoliation – Whether you are using a granular or enzymatic exfoliant, you will achieve an extra deep cleanse when adding your facial cups into the mix. Be sure to spend the same amount of time on each area. This helps to avoid over or under exfoliation in some areas. Take care around your eyes as the skin is much more delicate than the rest of your face.
- Massage – While the first 2 uses are more fast paced, here you can take your time. Lie back, relax and enjoy as the facial cups massages your muscle fibers. Choose your massage medium wisely. Product penetration is boosted tremendously, so you will benefit much more from your chosen skin care product. Always be sure to keep the facial cups moving. If you “park” them in an area, you may be left with a facial cup “kiss”. Read more about that here.
What is your favorite method to use your Bellabaci Facial Cups? We would love to hear from YOU!
Please Note: Never use a product containing mineral oil in combination with your Bellabaci Facial Cups. Our cups are made from medical grade silicone, which degenerates and harden when in contact with mineral oil. This silky silicone ensures that no virus, bacteria or fungus can take hold of your cup. So rest assured that you have chosen the highest quality in facial cupping!
Top Tip: Although we at the Bellabaci Team agree that sharing is caring, we do not recommend that you lend out your cups. This ensures hygienic therapy, with each use. To care for your facial cups, just wash them with a liquid detergent after each use and let dry.
