Incorporating KOHA Konjac Sponges into Your Nightly Routine
While we’re passionate advocates of a thorough night-time skincare regime, we know that many still believe that a simple swipe of a face wipe before bedtime is enough, or, worse still, are guilty of going to bed with a full face of makeup.
For us, the night-time skincare routine is just as important as the morning one, but for very different reasons, meaning you shouldn’t skip out on either if you want healthy and glowing skin.
But if you’re daunted by a ten-step skincare regime and simply want to fall into bed at night without a care, we’re here to tell you that your routine doesn’t need to be tricky – in fact, you can get it down to just three minutes each evening, and that’s all thanks to the konjac sponge. Simply incorporating a konjac sponge into your regime takes away all of the time, effort and work that a traditional skincare routine requires, making it quicker and simpler than ever before.
Ready to get started? Here’s how we adopt a lightning-fast routine that really works…
To start, simply soak your konjac sponge in a sink full of warm water, until it puffs up and turns silky-soft. Then apply a few drops of a luscious cleansing oil – we adore Votary’s Super Seed Cleansing Oil – to the damp sponge. For one minute, move the sponge around your face in circular motions to lift and dissolve away makeup in a flash, and then rinse the sponge thoroughly. Using water alone this time, we love a second cleanse to make sure that every last scrap has disappeared, for incredibly clean skin.
Squeeze out your sponge gently and hang it to dry, and now it’s time to move on to the next step. Splash on a gentle toner or a hydrating essence, depending on the needs of your skin – we particularly like B Beauty’s Hydrating Essence Lotion, which is vegan-friendly and packed with hyaluronic acid to hydrate and nourish the skin.
Then it’s time for your moisturiser, and for this, we recommend a nourishing oil, packed with vitamins and skin-loving minerals. Aster & Bay’s Serum Absolute is a suits-all facial oil that rebalances and hydrates the skin, working overnight to help your skin cells replenish and recover for beautifully soft, plump and clear skin come morning. Spend a minute massaging in your oil, sweeping it over the face and neck and pushing it into the skin.
And there you have it – didn’t we tell you it was super simple? No excuse for face wipes or for leaving your makeup on, it takes just three minutes to fully cleanse and refresh your skin, ready for bedtime.
