Rinse and soak the dry Konjac Sponge with warm water until fully softened and expanded. A wet sponge should expand approximately one and half larger than the dry one. For first time use, the sponge might take up to 15 minutes until it becomes soft. Cleanse your face with water-soaked sponge, or use the sponge daily with your favorite cleanser to complement and to create a rich lather for an incredibly therapeutic experience. Gently massage your face with the sponge starting from center of face and extend outwards in an upward direction. This produces a lifting effect to shape face for a slimmer silhouette and avoid sagging skin. Alternatively, massage your face with the sponge in circular motion. If you have acne, please avoid harsh rubbing on acne area. After use, rinse the sponge with warm running water and hang the sponge in a well-ventilated area to dry it. Do not expose the sponge to direct sunlight and do not leave the sponge in humid place.
