Caring for acne-prone skin can be a minefield, but here at KOHA Beauty, we like to keep things simple. Forget your cocktail of cleansers, your plethora of lotions and potions, and strip that complicated skincare routine right back, with a konjac sponge. Yes, you read that right – simply using a konjac sponge can help to solve problematic skin and leave you with a clearer, calmer complexion, thanks to our favourite wonder ingredient: charcoal.
Our Bamboo Charcoal Infused Konjac Sponge is a multitasking weapon when it comes to cleansing and clarifying your skin. Packed with mineral-rich bamboo charcoal powder, our konjac sponge cleanses deep into the pores, eliminating blackheads and clearing out trapped dirt and debris to prevent future blemishes appearing. Acne can also occur when the skin’s oil production mechanism goes into overdrive, leaving you with excess oil sitting on the surface of the skin, slowly clogging pores and turning into blackheads or worse still, whiteheads. Using a bamboo charcoal konjac sponge daily will help to absorb those excess oils and toxins, rebalancing the skin to leave it looking fresher and staying mattified for longer. Charcoal is a natural antioxidant too, which effectively kills off acne-causing bacteria to ensure skin is thoroughly cleansed and protected from future breakouts. Regular use is the key to clearer skin, along with a stripped-back but effective skincare regime. We recommend cleansing each morning just using our Bamboo Charcoal Konjac Sponge with lukewarm water, making sure to pay attention to any particularly spot-prone areas, such as the chin, cheeks or around the nose. Then in the evening, cleanse first with one of our Koha Beauty bars of soap (we would advise the Activated charcoal, Tea tree and Lemongrass) to remove the bulk of makeup and grime from the surface of the skin. Then you can go in with your konjac sponge once more – again using lukewarm water (hot water will aggravate your delicate skin and cause more redness!), to make sure that all traces of makeup are gone and to rebalance that complexion beautifully.
Sticking to your new skincare regime is essential to maintain your clear complexion, but it’s also key to make sure that cleanliness is at the top of your list – always remember to rinse your konjac sponge thoroughly after each use and hang it up to dry and replace your konjac sponge every four-six weeks to make sure that you’re keeping skin as clean as possible.
