If your lip conditioning period is longer than 10 days and your cupping marks (bruises) are quite dark, there is a good chance that you are ANEMIC as some CandyLipz users reported. 1 in 10 people are anemic. Anemic means your body is deficient in IRON. Iron’s primary job is to carry oxygen-rich blood to body tissues. If oxygen cannot get to the lip cupping site, the body cannot heal and remove debris/toxins from that area, thus your cupping marks stay there longer. Here is the quickest short-term solution to help you speed through your lip conditioning period. It does not matter if you are a meat eater, a vegetarian, or a vegan- the tips below can help you increase iron uptake right away.


  1. For it to work, it MUST BE HABITUAL! You have to do this daily for the next few weeks.
  2. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over your foods and drinks for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!
  3. Forget about memorizing foods rich in vitamin C, just eat food that tastes sour to you.

Side Bar: Up until today, scientists are still trying to figure out what is the best way for you to get enough iron into your diet. Pairing foods is a disaster! There are thousands of combinations and we do not eat the same diets. Iron supplements are not good because they can generate free radicals in the body. Doctors had to stop prescribing iron supplements to pregnant mothers. Secondly, you cannot depend on iron listed on food labels as they can be way off. For example, the USDA database estimates that chopped clam products have 24 mg of iron per 3-ounce serving. However, when a brand is tested, it may contain as low as just 1 mg of iron per serving. In contrast, some whole clams may contain as high as 50 mg per serving. This figure exceeds the current “tolerable upper intake level” for iron of 45 mg per day. Thus, eat iron rich-food with care. Iron uptakes depend on what foods you are pairing it with. There are foods that enhance and inhibit iron absorption. All foods are grown under different conditions and the amount of inhibitory agents in foods varies widely. So when in doubt, forget the headache and add lemon to your diet.

IMPORTANT: Do not take iron supplement unless it is prescribed by your physician. Too much iron in the body is also unhealthy.  To reduce iron uptake, have a glass of organic milk with your meal or read this article on How to Reduce Iron Load Here.
