Korea is a hotbed of beauty trends and The Doctors are checking out some Korean Konjac sponges. These are derived from the porous root of a plant found in Asia. They are all natural exfoliating sponges and they are a buzz! Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra says they need to be soaked first but once they are, they are just the right amount of gentle exfoliation. They aren’t too harsh that they will cause inflammation or irritation but they are ideal for sloughing off dry, dull skin leaving you with a radiant look.
The sponges are compostable and biodegradable. Dr. Batra recommends using them for about a month before disposing of them. After use, she says to press them flat, squeeze out the remaining water, and hang to air dry.
The sponges also come in different colors because they have different properties. There is a dark gray one which contains charcoal. Dr. Batra recommends this one for Travis’ makeup-covered face! For people with more sensitive skin, she would recommend a sponge with red clay, which is anti-inflammatory. For a sponge variety pack try Shopper Goods Konjac Sponge Facial Variety 5-Pack, which comes with charcoal, turmeric, green tea, french red clay and pure konjac. If you know you are looking for something more clarifying and rebalancing, the My Home Body 4-Pack comes with two charcoal and two aloe vera reusable sponges. The Minamul Konjac Organic Facial Sponge 6-pack comes with all charcoal sponges and is safe for all skin types.
