Start by placing a suction cup on your chin and around your mouth. Leave the suction cup in place for a few seconds (2-3 seconds), then move it upward to a new area.
Change the suction cup size as needed depending on the area.
Continue until you have successfully completed all of the areas you want.
If you used facial oil, clean your face and pat it dry. Otherwise, use a little lukewarm water to reopen your pores.
Continue your beauty or skin care routine. Facial suction cups increase the absorption of products.
