With increasing age, many women notice that their complexion changes and that skin care becomes more complex. But that doesn’t mean using expensive cosmetics. There is a natural sponge that not only cleanses the skin, but also makes it glow and soft to the touch. We’re talking about the Japanese Konjac sponge! The East offers many ideas in terms of cosmetics and skin care. The women from these countries actually take great care of their skin, paying close attention to the products used and the daily beauty routine. Find out today the secrets of the Konjac sponge, what benefits it brings and how it affects our beauty.
What is konjac sponge?
The sponge consists of the koja root of the plant devil’s tongue, which is also eaten in Japan, China and Korea. The fibers of the root are processed into powder and the Konjac sponges are made from them. These vegan sponges made from the renewable raw material devil’s tongue are a miracle product for skin care by cleaning the pores, gently exfoliating the skin, supplying it with moisture and stimulating cell renewal.
The Konjac sponge is also well suited for sensitive skin because it is free of colorings and preservatives. The sponge measures approximately 8 cm x 3.5 cm and is hard like a pumice stone. It only becomes soft when it comes into contact with water.
It’s pretty straightforward to use
How is the natural sponge used?
As already mentioned, the Konjac sponge is as hard as a pumice stone. Before use, you should wash the sponge thoroughly by soaking it in warm water for about 10 minutes. The sponge should be used without any additional products. However, you can put a small dollop of cleansing gel on it to quickly remove make-up and powder. Otherwise, daily maintenance is very easy with it. Massage the face and body with gentle circular motions to cleanse the skin of dead skin cells.
Depending on use and proper care, the sponge will last around two months on average. So that you can make maximum use of the natural sponge, rinse it off after each use without squeezing it out and wringing it out and then hang it up to dry. It is really important not to squeeze, twist, or wring the sponge too hard as this will damage the fibers.
The natural sponge ensures velvety soft skin
How does the Konjac sponge affect the skin?
The massaging movements with the sponge alone stimulate tired skin and stimulate skin renewal. Because of the contained glucomannan, which is a fiber, the konjac is considered a moisturizer. The basic pH value has an alkaline effect on the skin. The peeling effect frees the skin from dead skin and leaves it feeling soft. This also ensures good blood circulation and makes the skin look fresh and pink.
The Konjac sponge can be used by anyone as it is suitable for all skin types and has a wide range of uses. You can use it for the whole body, e.g. B. to soften rough knee and elbow areas. The sponge is also suitable for delicate baby skin.
Different Konjac sponges to choose from
There is now a wide range of Konjack sponges on the market. For example, there are those with activated charcoal, which are said to be particularly suitable for oily and blemished skin. Variants that contain different alumina are also available. For example, a sponge with white clay is suitable for all skin types and those with red clay should help against enlarged veins and wrinkles.
The Konjac sponge is suitable for all of you who live more nature-consciously and do not want to use expensive cosmetics!
