As we move into the spring/summer months I find myself changing up my skincare with the seasons. The thick, heavy-duty moisturisers are no longer needed as often and I need to use lighter products to stop my face getting the midday shine!
Recently after long days at work wearing makeup, going to the gym and generally not eating as healthily as I should my skin has started to become a little congested. Usually I will opt for a hot muslin cloth alongside my cleanser to open pores and exfoliate skin, but then I discovered konjac sponges. They are 100% natural, sustainable and don't dry out the skin. They can be used alone, to gently exfoliate, or with a cleanser. Best of all they are self-cleansing - just rinse it out and leave to dry - and will last months.
This sponge from Beauty Kitchen comes simply packaged and instantly feels springy and a little moist as you take it out the packet. It isn't harsh at all like some scrubs or sponges and feels really smooth on the skin. I've been using it for a few weeks and have already noticed a huge difference in my skin. It retails for £6.99 from the Beauty Kitchen website or from Holland and Barrett.
