How Do I Use It?
Konjac Sponges are known for their soft, mild texture. This soft texture means they can even be used by people who have sensitive skin. Konjac sponges are hard in their natural state. So before you begin cleansing, you should soak your Konjac Sponge in warm water for at least five minutes. In the meantime, splash your face with lukewarm water to prep it. Once the sponge is soft, gently squeeze out excess water and begin to rub it on your face. For best results rub in gentle, circular motions. These magic little sponges can be used with water only or in combination with a cleanser of choice. After cleansing your skin, rinse and clean your Konjac Sponge and leave it to air-dry. Avoid exposing the sponge to direct sunlight or storing it in a humid place.
