Konjac Sponges Cleansing RoutineCharcoal vs. White Pearl
- Before cleansing, it’s best to know which kind of sponge you will be using because of the different properties they contain. The charcoal sponge is used for deep cleansing to help eliminate blackheads and dirt while absorbing excess oils and toxins, helping kill stubborn acne-causing bacteria. Konjac Sponges are a great natural treatment for acne sufferers! The white pearl sponge is a great every day tool to use during your cleansing routine. It is ideal for sensitive or extra dry skin.
- It is very important to remove all make-up before you begin cleansing. If not, the Konjac sponges will infiltrate the make-up more deeply into your pores causing new break-outs to form overnight. Be sure to use a gentle make-up remover so it doesn’t irritate your eyes and skin.
- Konjac sponges are very hard when they are dry so it’s crucial to put them underneath warm water before you begin. It’s best to wait a few minutes to make sure the sponges are completely soft; this is so it doesn’t injure your skin. You can use the sponges without any cleanser or you can add your preferred cleanser. Maintain a rich foaming lather while you massage the sponge onto your skin. Use caution if you have healing acne, infections, or abrasions by making sure not to press too hard on these affected areas.
- Once you are finished, rinse the Konjac sponges with warm water to remove all excess cleanser and water. Let the sponge hang-dry, being sure to keep out of direct sunlight and humidity. You can use Konjac Sponges every day based on your skin’s needs. If you do not want to use every day, drop the use down to two or three times a week.
