Konjac Sponge Benefits.

First and foremost, using a Konjac sponge is an excellent way to exfoliate your skin. Exfoliating with your Konjac sponge on a regular basis will promote healthy, youthful-looking, plump, and radiant skin.

Why is this, you may ask? Your skin will achieve these positive effects because exfoliation gets rid of any dead skin cells that you may have. By getting rid of the dead cells, it stimulates the growth of new cells, which are brighter and healthier. It also stimulates blood circulation, which gives you a better-looking, glowing complexion. Your complexion is also improved because exfoliation helps to clear your skin's pores and removes excess oil.

As well as exfoliation, the Konjac sponge is also beneficial for you in the following ways:

1.It Cleans Your Skin Like Nothing Else. Konjac sponges' natural fibers really get to the bottom of your dirty pores, removing any oil, make-up, or grime that has been left behind by routine cleansing. In essence, a Konjac sponge will clean your skin like nothing else will, leaving it not only ultra-clean but wonderfully soft too.

2.Removes Dead Skin. If you have patches of dry skin that you want to get rid of or areas of flaking skin, the Konjac sponge will exfoliate and leave your skin looking plumper, smoother, and more refreshed. Keep this regularly going to remove old and dead skin cells and allow for a healthy turnover of new skin cells.

3.Smoother Skin and Fresher Complexion. Using your Konjac sponge every day for exfoliation will help you rid yourself of back-heads, soften any spots of darkness on your skin, and remove rough or flaky patches of skin, leaving only smooth, toned, and fresh skin in its place.

4.High in Minerals and Vitamins. The Konnyaku's root fibers contain many vitamins, minerals, proteins, and healthy omega acids. These help to give your skin all the nutrition it needs.

5.Skin pH Balancing. Konjac sponges are made from materials that have a neutral pH level. This means that they can assist in balancing your skin's pH too.

6.Aids Sunburn Relief. The softness and gentleness of Konjac sponges make them ideal for removing flaking sun-burned skin, without risking any further damage.
