How do you use a konjac sponge? It may seem complicated, but it is actually quite simple. Your first step is to fill the sink with lukewarm water and submerge the sponge for a about two minutes, until it has expanded and is lovely and soft (the newer the sponge, the longer it takes) afterwards you squeeze out the excess water. Done with these two steps? Then you’re good to go!
Use the sponge “au naturel” for the best result. Even with nothing more than water, the konjac sponge provides your skin with a gentle, efficient cleanse. The sponges are slightly alkaline, which explains their cleaning effect.
