Herbar Gua Shroom Can Help:

  • Combat Puffiness
    Say goodbye to those stubborn morning puffiness. The Herbar Gua Shroom works wonders in reducing facial swelling. Its unique shape allows for gentle yet effective massage that helps disperse fluid build-up, giving you a more sculpted and refreshed appearance.

  • Promote Lymphatic Drainage
    Good lymphatic flow is essential for detoxifying the skin and reducing inflammation. The Gua Shroom helps stimulate lymphatic drainage, aiding in the removal of toxins and reducing facial puffiness. Regular use can lead to clearer, healthier-looking skin.

  • Enhance Skincare Absorption
    When combined with Herbar Face Oil, the Gua Shroom transforms your skincare routine into a luxurious, nourishing massage. The face oil helps the tool glide smoothly over the skin, enhancing the absorption of the nourishing ingredients into the deeper layers of your skin.

  • Boosts Circulation
    Gua sha stimulates microcirculation of the soft tissue, which increases blood flow. This can help nourish the skin and improve its overall appearance. Better circulation means more oxygen and nutrients are delivered to the skin, giving you that healthy glow.

  • Reduces Tension & Stress
    Herbar Guashroom can be used on the face and body can help release muscle tension and promote relaxation. It’s particularly effective for relieving tension headaches and neck pain. The gentle scraping motion helps to soothe tight muscles and reduce stress, leaving you feeling more relaxed.

  • Enhances Skin Tone & Texture
    Regular Gua Sha sessions can help improve the texture and tone of your skin. By promoting lymphatic drainage and reducing puffiness, it helps to even out the complexion and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Your skin will look smoother and more radiant.

  • Detoxifies the Skin
    Gua sha aids in lymphatic drainage, which is essential for detoxifying the skin. By moving lymphatic fluids out of the tissues and into the lymph nodes, Gua Sha helps to remove toxins from the body. This can reduce swelling and promote a clearer complexion.

  • Relieves Sinus Pressure
    For those suffering from sinus congestion, gua sha can be a natural remedy. By gently massaging the sinus areas, gua sha can help relieve pressure and promote drainage, reducing sinus-related headaches and discomfort.

  • Boosts Collagen Production
    The increased blood flow and stimulation from gua sha can help boost collagen production. Collagen is essential for maintaining the skin’s elasticity and firmness. Regular use of gua sha can help maintain a youthful appearance.

  • Reduces Dark Circles & Under-Eye Bags
    Gua sha can help reduce dark circles and puffiness under the eyes. The gentle scraping motion promotes lymphatic drainage, which can diminish the appearance of under-eye bags and brighten the eye area.

  • Improves Product Absorption
    Using gua sha after applying your skincare products can enhance their absorption. The massage helps to push the products deeper into the skin, ensuring you get the maximum benefits from your serums, oils, and creams.

How To Use Herbar Gua Shroom:

  1. Cleanse & Prep:
    Start with a clean, dry face. Apply a bit of Herbar Face Oil or Herbar Face Nectar to help the Gua Shroom glide smoothly without pulling your skin.

  2. Hold it Right:
    Grip the Gua Shroom by the stem with a firm, comfortable hold.

  3. Start Gliding:
    Begin at the center of your face and gently glide the Gua Shroom outward towards your hairline. Use light pressure and slow, deliberate movements.

  4. Eye Area Care:
    Use the narrow edge of the Gua Shroom and sweep gently from the inner corner of your eye outwards towards your temples. Be gentle to avoid any tugging.

  5. Jawline & Neck:
    Don’t forget the jawline and neck. Sweep the tool upwards along your jaw and downwards from your chin to your collarbone. This helps sculpt and detoxify.

  6. Relax & Enjoy:
    Repeat each stroke 5-10 times on each part of your face. Relax, breathe, and let the stress melt away.

  7. Clean Up:
    After your session, clean the Gua Shroom with mild soap and water, dry it off, and store it safely.
