Why You Should Avoid Facial Cupping


Avoid Facial CuppingAs the time comes to start looking for some excellent spring skin care tips, you can always rely on celebrities to come up with something ever so slightly weird and wonderful. Facial cupping, anyone? You’ve probably seen the telltale marks on Michael Phelps’ back as he swims, but did you know that celebrities are using cupping to (supposedly) reduce any inflammation around the jawline? There has to be a simpler and less dramatic route to excellent spring skin.

Foods Which Cause Inflammation

Rather than turning to actual flames to fight inflammation, one of the best spring skin care tips you can receive is to cut these foods from your diet. You don’t need to resort to cupping, just don’t eat:

  • Refined carbs such as white bread and pasta
  • Fried food, no matter how tasty it is
  • Soda and other sugary drinks
  • Red meat or processed meat (an occasional BBQ burger is probably okay!)
  • Margarine, butter and other lardy stuff

Food-Based Spring Skin Care Tips

Life would be terrible if you focused only on what you’re NOT allowed have.

 Try putting a more positive spin on having to cut out those tasty hot dogs and sodas by thinking about how good these foods can be, not to mention tasty and great for your skin!

  • Tomatoes
  • Olive oil
  • Leafy greens, such as spinach and kale
  • Nuts
  • Oily fish, like salmon and tuna
  • Strawberries, cherries, oranges and other fruits.

Combining a healthy diet with a regular skin care routine should be enough to give your skin a boost in time for spring, without needing to resort to any eccentric celebrity “tips”.  Don’t take the tips too literally either, life is best when you enjoy everything in moderation. If you feel you need a helping hand, how about some laser skin rejuvenation instead?
