Hey FaceTory Fam!

You asked and Unni answers! Today, we’re talking about konjac sponges, a skincare tool that will help give your skin a gentle exfoliation, leaving it feeling smooth and supple! So, read on to find out more about this cute and super soft sponge!

What is a Konjac Sponge?

A konjac sponge is used for cleansing and exfoliating. It is made of 100% natural plant fiber made from konjac root. This exfoliating tool is great for sensitive skin and is gentle enough for people with eczema and psoriasis. It will help remove any grime, dirt and flaky skin, leaving you with a brighter, softer and smoother surface. It can also increase circulation so that your skin can remain glowing, radiant and healthy. It is gentle enough to use daily, or use it 1-2 times a week to give your skin just the right amount of exfoliation.

How do you use a Konjac Sponge?

When you first hold a konjac sponge, you might be thinking, “uhm, what is this rough rock that I’m holding?” But we assure you, it’s no rock! Once the sponge is soaked in water, it will be a thick, plushy, and gentle sponge 😊

How to use a konjac sponge:

  1. Wet Konjac sponge with water and gently squeeze out excess water by pressing the sponge down between your palms.
  2. Apply a small amount of cleanser or use alone.
  3. Gently rub the sponge on your face in circular motions.
  4. Rinse well and squeeze excess water out by pressing the sponge between your palms and hang to dry in an airy place. Do not twist!

The shelf life average is about 1-2 months, it could even hit 3 months if cared for correctly!

How to sanitize a Konjac Sponge?

There are several ways to help keep your Konjac sponge clean and sturdy, but the best and most common way is squeezing out the water by flattening the palms of your hands together and hanging it up to dry in an airy area.

Why should you try a Konjac Sponge?

Exfoliating your skin is another step that is extremely important if you want to achieve smooth, plump, and clear skin. Finding the right exfoliator can be a little tricky since exfoliating products can be too harsh on your skin, causing irritation or making it dry. If used too roughly, some sugar or salt exfoliators may be too abrasive and damage the skin. Konjac sponges, on the other hand, are super gentle exfoliators that can be used every day, as long as you’re exfoliating gently.

And as always, just keep glowing! ✨
