Coconut Oil Floss

The coconut oil in the floss has anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties that may help prevent gingivitis so this one little product packs a major punch.

Cellulite Cups

Along with fascia rollers, cellulite cups have picked up in popularity thanks to the remarkable results. The rubber suction cup acts like a rolling pin to stimulate blood flow and release tension in the fascia, which smooths the appearance of cellulite. You can use the cups on your arms, legs, belly, or any other body part that you want to target. With consistent use, you should notice a difference within three to five months.
