Konjac sponge is a cute little skincare tool from Japan that might be the secret to smooth, clear and healthy skin. The beauty industry is obsessed with this squishy cleansing tool that promises radiant skin, simply by washing your face with it. Now isn’t that just amazing, finding a product that requires little effort and yet does so much?

The sponge is quite easy to use, and can be used alone or along with a facial cleanser. Here’s why you need to add a konjac sponge to your skincare routine right away to get the healthiest skin ever.

Konjac sponges not only cleanse the skin and remove dirt from the surface of the skin, but also exfoliate the skin to remove dead skin cells. Soak the sponge in warm water for a few minutes, squeeze out excess water and apply a few drops of facial cleanser onto the sponge to wash your face. You will notice your skin feels cleaner and smoother.

Who doesn’t want radiant and glowing skin? We know I do! That’s why I’ve started using the konjac sponge twice a day to cleanse my face. It sloughs away the dirt and dead skin cells sitting on the surface of the skin revealing a smooth, glowing complexion. When your skin is clear, your skincare products also absorb well into the deeper layers of the skin and give you the desired results.

Konjac sponges are extremely gentle on skin; they’re more gentle than scrubs and can be used on a daily basis. They do not irritate the skin and can be used by everyone--from those with sensitive skin to those suffering with rosacea or dry, flaky skin.

If sustainable, eco-friendly is your vibe, then you have all the more reason to add a konjac sponge to your skincare routine. Since the sponge is made using konjac root, a root vegetable that grows in Asia, after five to six weeks, the sponge can be composted along with your vegetable and fruit leftovers. Healthy skin, happy environment!
