As the season changes, so does our skin, and in order to prepare for what lies ahead, some modifications to the cleansing routine may be in order. With the help of a couple of tools, specifically, the EcoTools Complexion Facial Sponge and Dry Body Brush, promoting the ultimate thorough (yet gentle) cleanse and promoting skin cell turnover has never been easier.
Making sure to get a good exfoliation is the key to keeping pores clear, circulation strong, and skin bright, so let’s start with the benefits of a konjac sponge. EcoTools’ Complexion Facial Sponge is made from 100% natural ingredients, most notably the konjac (pronounced cone-yak) vegetable fiber, a root plant that predominantly grows in Asia. Known in beauty circles for its gentle, detoxifying benefits, you can choose between a sensitive or deep cleansing sponge option, and all it takes is a quick rinse under warm water to start and finish the process, drying out and hardening up in between washes. Plus, it feels soothing and soft on your face once you warm it under the faucet and add your favorite cleanser.
Have you ever dry brushed before? It may sound like a foreign concept (it certainly did to me when I first heard about it at a spa), but it actually is a great way to take some of the aforementioned attributes of a konjac sponge, and spread them to your entire body, without any water needed.
All you’ve got to do is slip your hand through the Dry Body Brush handle, and gentle brush by using long, upward strokes, beginning with your legs, moving upward to the mid-section, and finishing up on your arms. It’s a great way to stimulate your skin and wake up in the morning, or habit to get into as part of your wind-down night time routine (do it before washing your face and brushing your teeth), as you are helping to remove dead skin cells but also to detoxify by awakening the lymphatic system. Warning: it may energize you and make you feel AMAZING!
The Complexion Facial Sponge is just $5.99, whereas the Dry Body Brush is $4.99; such an affordable price for a tremendous value! Follow along via the hashtag #FallForEcoTools on social for additional tips oh how to use these great tools form myself and my fellow beauty experts.
