Where Konjac Comes From?

Konjac, also known as glucomannan, is an herb that grows in parts of Asia. It’s known for its starchy corm, a tuber-like part of the stem that grows underground. The corm is used to make a rich source of soluble dietary fiber. It’s also used in traditional Japanese medicine. According to a 2013 study, konjac can reduce acne and improve the health of skin. It’s thought to reduce allergic response and improve wound healing.

Why a Konjac Sponge Works

Konjac Sponge acts as a cleansing agent for your face to clear dirt and skin impurities. Since they are made from natural fiber, there is nothing synthetic about them. Hence, they are safe to use on your skin. The Konjac Sponge is almost like a loofah, only softer. If the former’s texture can already give you smooth skin, imagine what the softer and finer texture of the Konjac Sponge can do for you.

One of it's benefits is to make your skin extremely clean without drying it out making it dull-looking. Other benefits include treating your clogged pores and acne and makes your skin more radiant.

How to Use a Konjac Sponge?

When you first get a konjac sponge you’ll notice it’s small and rather hard. Soak the sponge in warm water for 15 minutes before the first use. Once you’ve used it, it will only need soaking for a minute or two before it softens and expands to about one and a half times its size.

Gently squeeze the excess water out by pressing the konjac sponge between your palms. Don’t be rough with it. Apply a small amount of cleanser (if desired), or just use the sponge plain.

Rub the konjac sponge on the face in upward, circular motions. Concentrate on dry or blackhead-prone areas. It’s a mild exfoliator, so it may feel like you need to scrub hard to get it to work, but that isn’t necessary. These sponges will remove dirt, sunscreen, and even makeup. (You may need to use a little bit of coconut oil to remove heavy eye makeup though.)

Rinse the konjac sponge well with cool water and gently squeeze the excess water out by pressing the sponge between your palms. Don’t twist, wring, or pull on it.

Hang it to dry, or put it on a rack so there’s airflow. Alternately, you can keep the sponge in a sealed container in your fridge. Make sure to store it away from light and humidity. Right next to your steamy shower isn’t the best option.
