Konjac Sponge : All about it.

Hi friends!!!!!

Konjac sponge

Beauty product markets are currently flooded with ASIAN beauty products .  Beauty lovers have been testing and trying them . This ‘ Konjac Sponge’ is one of such products .  I saw some very good reviews about this in some blogs and could not resist to try this out. It is widely available in major online portals and the price  also varies . I have seen prices starting from 180 rs ( flipkart, paytm ) to 2000rs . As i was skeptical i  wanted to buy  at lower prices , in my excitement i ended up buying two.

Both are grey charcoal ones , one was for 180rs (Amazon)  other was for 499rs ( ebay).

They have different colors of sponges for different purposes . Charcoal ones for acne prone skin , yellow turmeric one for skin brightening ,white plain Konjac sponge , Green tea Konjac Sponge for detoxifying and brightening ,Rose Clay Heart Sponge,  for sensitive and dry skin.  There are different shapes as well . They have body sponges too.

 Texture :

Konjac sponge

Unused sponge is small ,firm and rough which  does not look like the one to be used on face .  Once soaked in water it becomes soft ,fat sponge .

 How to use

Konjac sponge

For first use you need to soak Konjac sponge in lukewarm water for 15-20 mins . On soaking it gets double the size of the dry one . From second use on wards it needs less then 2 mins to achieve the desirable size   . It can be used alone or along with the routine cleanser .

I use  daily at night with cleanser . Then I put a dollop of cleanser directly on the wet sponge for a light scrub. The sponge feels really nice and gentle. After washing, I rinse out the sponge ,gently squeeze it then hang it to dry .

SHELF LIFE

Konjac sponge

2 years  .

It is advisable to replace it once every 3 months ( Just like a tooth brush )

My take

The sponge is very gentle to use . I have been using it for last 2 months and i can say that i love it . Though it did not produce any drastic results it certainly reduced the size of my cystic acne. At at any given point of time i have 1-2 cysts on my face which would last for months with waxing and waning at the same place. Once i started using Konjac sponge ,   The cysts started to vanish by first week itself . This is the only thing which seems to work for my cystic acne .

8 Everyday Tea tree oil Beauty hacks

Tea tree oil

 

Photo :.angels.

Tea tree oil is derived from the leaves of the tea tree .It has antibacterial and anti fungal properties .Tea tree oil has a very important role in my daily regimen.I use it in multiple ways .I add two drops of it in everywhere imaginable. It is like my  ”do boondh zindagi ke”.

.1.Face pack

I do not have any specific ways to use , as i do not have any allergic reactions to tea tree oil . I add 2 drops of tea tree oil to every pack i make. Both d.i.y and  commercial ones .It just adds a dose of acne coverage for me.

2.MOISTURIZER

I have an extremely oily acne prone skin that tea tree oil found a place in almost everything i use on my skin.Like the one before i have added few drops of tea tree oil to the night cream i daily use.

3.Spot

On red and inflamed ones i use a drop directly , i use a cotton bud to apply it on spot. The action of tea tree oil for acne is comparable to Benzyl Peroxide . But tea tree oil is less irritating and more time taking compared to the later.

If you have intolerance to the strong tea tree oil , you can consider adding it to Aloevera gel

4.post -pop up

I usually do not pick or pop my pimples as it can need to nasty scarring and spread. But there are times where it becomes an emergency . If i have to pop a pimple , i will do in a very sterile way . After popping up ,i apply tea tree oil topically on the raw spot . It burns a bit but it can reduce the inflammation and it can reduce the infectivity  (chances of infecting other areas)

5.steam

I take 10 mins of steam twice a week for both beauty and medical benefits . I add two drops of tea tree oil to the steam . Being an antibacterial it helps with bronchitis and sinusitis as well.

6.HAIR OIL

I add two drops of tea tree oil to the oil before oiling my hair. It helps with itchiness and minor scalp infections ( Read other tips 4 Home remedies for Itchy scalp  ). It is extremely useful in rainy season. (Related …10 MONSOON HAIR CARE tips )

7.for bathing water

I have a habit of adding essential oils to my bathing water . The aroma gives a nice feeling , plus tea tree oil helps with body odor and itchiness .

8.FOR MINOR CUTS

I am extremely prone to cuts and other minor injuries . If i can not get my hands on any antiseptic ,i will happily use tea tree oil ( i keep a bottle of it everywhere i go ). I also use this after threading my eyebrows .

 

Do not use tea tree oil , if you have extremely sensitive skin unless tested. Pubertal and prepubertal boys may experience some problems with it , as tea tree oil might have some harmonal effects .
