When it comes to beauty, Kim knows a lot. But just because she's on board with something called facial cupping (as seen on her Snapchat), doesn't mean that you're going to know what exactly it is.
You might've heard of cupping, but this face-specific version is slightly different. To learn a little bit about Kim's most recently revealed beauty habit, we went straight to the source: Nurse Jamie. After all, the LA-based skin expert is the one who performed the ancient healing method on Kim.
Here's what you need to know.
Using cups of different sizes strategically placed on areas of the face, the skin gets drawn up into the cup, creating a vacuum-like effect. "It kind of feels like a cat licking you," described Nurse Jamie. Almost immediately, you will feel your muscles start to relax and any facial tension melting away. You'll also notice plumper, fuller skin right away. Don't worry: Unlike body cupping, which can bruise, facial cupping tends to be much gentler.
There are plenty of at-home options (this one's only $40). Just be sure to read the directions and not suction too hard—you don't want hickies all over your face!
