Smooth fine lines with cupping.
The suction created from moving small silicone cups around the face puts tension on collagen-producing cells to increase the production of the skin-firming protein-and it also has an instant plumping effect.
Lift, plump, and minimize wrinkles on your face and décolletage naturally with this medical-grade silicone cupping set. Use it every day, along with an anti-aging oil, for best results. Just remember never to leave the cups on your skin for longer than a few seconds, as they’re very strong and can cause bruising if left on too long. Follow the instructions included in the kit and watch the years melt away!
Happy customer: “This is the second facial accessory I’ve purchased from Kungfu and like the first, it works great. I actually didn’t realize it came with four cups, so that’s a plus right out of the package. The cups themselves are firm yet supple and work perfectly for the face. I’m fairly new at this and only use it twice a week, but it seems to have made my skin texture improve in just these past three weeks. I use the big one for most everywhere except right under the eyes. I recommend looking at videos on how to do this before you try, but the cup set does have good instructions. Great price if you ask me.”
Slim your face with ice rolling.
Massaging puffy skin with a cold stainless steel roller nixes swelling and pushes excess fluids out through lymph nodes, erasing any facial “weight” fast. Just sweep the roller in upward motions starting at the base of the neck and move along the face for five minutes.
Keep this cute pink-handled stainless steel roller in the freezer for maximum effect and roll it over your face and neck anytime you need a pick-me-up! The coolness helps encourage healthy circulation and stimulates your skin cells to improve skin’s elasticity and reduce swelling. Say goodbye to puffiness, under your eyes or anywhere else you use it!
Happy customer: “I was skeptical about these cold rollers being effective, and after trying this stainless steel facial roller for my first facial roller, I’m hooked! The stainless steel definitely gets very cold in your freezer, so make sure to leave it out to defrost a bit as recommended before using it on your face. My favorite part of using these rollers is the cold really does help me de-puff my face and calm down my redness. I’d definitely recommend as part of your skincare routine.”
Get your glow on with facial steaming.
Warm steam is an easy at-home spa treatment that opens up pores, helping to release skin-dulling impurities while also boosting circulation for an instantly youthful flush. Get the benefits by hovering the face six inches above a facial steaming device for 10 minutes.
This at-home spa treatment-inspired facial steamer is simple to use and even comes with a bonus four-piece blackhead remover kit and hair band. Follow up your steaming session by using this kit to unclog pores and remove blackhead for even smoother and more glowing skin after every use.
Happy customer: “WOW!!! I didn’t even know a product like this existed until my husband gave this to me for Mother’s Day. If you’ve never tried one you really don’t know what you’re missing. The warm mist feels so good on my face and makes my skin feel great. I’m well over 50 and my husband tells me I look ten years younger since I’ve been using the mister. It’s actually fun to use and makes my skin feel so smooth and cean. This is without a doubt the best one on the market; my husband really researched them. It’s a professional-caliber product.”
