Today we’re talking about another love of mine and my current obsession; Konjac Sponges especially from The Konjac Sponge Company. You may have heard them by now, but what exactly are they? Konjac is an extraordinary plant that comes from Asia, Konjac is packed with water and minerals that have been used for centuries for medicinal use, food and as a beauty aid . The Konjac Sponge Company has taken all the goodness of this plant and packed it into a little solid sponge that when put under water for a few seconds expands and turns into the ultimate beauty potion for great skin. These sponges are completely vegan, natural and cruelty free, as well as eco-friendly and you can find one to suit your skin and/or any skin concern. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes and are even baby friendly.
So Let’s talk purpose
As for their purpose, these little gems can be your secret beauty tool as they ensure not only a deep cleanse of your skin but your skin absorbs the richness of the minerals that is in each individual sponge and you quickly see your complexion improve with each use. Most definitely, premium skin cleansing with little fuss.
There are many types of Konjac Sponges; one for every skin concern so you don’t have to worry if you have sensitive skin or dry, mature skin. Many companies carry their own line of Konjac sponges but I find the Konjac Sponge Company carries such a large variety of sponges and each sponge is packed with the richness of the Konjac vegetable fibres and some are infused with other great minerals for an added benefit.
How to use the Konjac Sponge
Anyone can use these, whether you love to wear makeup or not, if you are young or used to be young…they are seriously that good for your skin. You simply put the sponge under warm water to get it soaked, and then use it with your favourite cleanser or even alone, for an easy and effective cleanse. Then let it dry and repeat as often as you like until its time to replace (normally 3 months). I prefer to cleanse with a cleanser first if I am wearing a lot of makeup and then use the Konjac Sponge as an exfoliating agent and to truly let my skin absorb all the sponge’s infusion of minerals and natural ingredients.

A Yummy Mummy Tip

Little care tip: make sure you always let the sponge dry by hanging it up, it will preserve the sponge over time and ensure you are getting the most benefits from the sponge with each use.
