No idea what a konjac sponge is?
Do not fear! Yours truly is about to enlighten you and your skin, and Oh you’re welcome!
That little brown thing (its actually black) in the picture above is how the konjac sponge looks like.
The Konjac Potato or Konnyaku is a native plant in Asia and can be found growing wild at very high altitudes. Konjac contains 97% water, is rich in minerals and low in calories which makes it a natural food source. Konjack is also pH neautral which therefere leaves your skin looking perfectly balanced. The konnyaku is over 1,500 years old and has been used as medicine, food, a beauty product. The Konjac sponge was orginally created for delicated baby skin.
Apart from the history of the Konjac, it contains an endless amount of benefits:
- 100% natural fibres
- Packed with mineral and antioxidants
- Its non- toxic
- 100% cruelty free
- Its made naturally and its environmentally safe
The konjac sponge has literally changed my life and my skin! Its extremely gentle on the skin and works so much better than scrubs and it can be used for daily exfoliation, you may use it with your face wash when washing your face daily. Once you use it with your face wash, whilst washing and exfoliating you will be able to gently remove your makeup, without a hustle. After using a Konjac sponge daily for a week, my skin was much smoother and a bit more radiant. I could definitely feel and see a difference in my skin, after using it just for a week and I know if my skin could speak it would be expressing its gratitude profusely.
How to use it: Soak the sponge in water until its softer and fully expanded. Then remove the excess water by gently pressing the sponge in between the palms of your hand. Use in a circular motion on your face for a few minutes.
If you don’t own one, you need to get your hands on one! Your skin will thank you later. Its a small investment to ensure you have beautiful skin each day. I, honestly cannot imagine how my skin has survived without the konjac all this time!
