The main benefit of using a konjac sponge is definitely it’s exfoliating abilities. Frequent gentle exfoliation is the key to radiant, glowing, plump, youthful looking skin. Why? Because exfoliation removes dead skin cells (stimulating cell turnover and revealing brighter skin underneath), stimulates circulation (adding a rosy glow to your complexion), unclogs pores, and clears away excess oil. These sponges are made with just 100% konjac root fiber. Pure konjac sponges are white and naturally infused with vitamins (A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, D, and E) and minerals (copper, zinc, iron, and magnesium). This kind of konjac sponge is a good choice for sensitive skin types who want a gentle daily exfoliation.
Adding a konjac sponge to your daily skin care routine is easy! Simply wet the sponge, add your Sheapureness soap, and massage all around your face.
Tips on How to Use a Konjac Sponge:
- Massage in a Circular Motion: This circular motion boosts cell turnover by helping to facilitate lymphatic drainage and efficient mineral transport.
- Use Twice Daily: Konjac sponges are gentle enough to be used morning and night each day.
- Always Wet Your Sponge: Konjac sponges should never be used dried, the texture is way too rough and could damage your skin. On first use, it may take 10-15 minutes to soften your konjac sponge under running water. After that, your konjac sponge will typically soften within 1 minute.
- Clean After Each Use: To clean, simply give your konjac sponge a good rinse and gently squeeze to remove all excess liquid. Do not wring or twist out your sponge as this can damage your sponge. Hang to dry after each use.
- A Dry Konjac Sponge is a Happy Konjac Sponge: To prevent bacteria and mold growth, do not leave your konjac sponge in a damp area such as the shower or sink. Hang your sponge in a dry area.
- Konjac Sponges Last 3 Months: Konjac sponges last anywhere from 2-3 months typically before needing to be replaced. There are some sponges that last only 4-6 weeks, so check your konjac sponge packaging for more details. When your sponge is brittle and falling apart when wet, it’s time to replace your sponge.
