Rave Fave: Natural Sponges

I love going to the spa for a facial. There's nothing like the gentle touch of a skin specialist smoothing on products and massaging the skin while relaxing music plays in the background. The sweet smell of natural products working to hydrate and turn back the clock is a moment to enjoy, but one of my all-time favorite parts of a relaxing facial is when the sponges come out to play.  

These natural sponges work to absorb product off of the skin and their texture is so gentle.  I've even incorporated them into my everyday skincare regimen. After massaging cleanser onto my skin, I warm a

 soft sponge under the tap and gently--very gently, don't pull--use it to take off my face wash. It almost feels like I'm at the spa, I swear. I bought a pack of sponges at Whole Foods, but you can find them at a variety of stores and online.

Be sure to use the sponges wet, as they dry they become rough and that texture is not good for your skin. Also, rinse them clean once you're done and keep them in an area where they can air-dry. Enjoy!

What's your favorite part of a facial? Are you more inclined to use natural sponges for your beauty regimen?

I love when the esthetician puts the mask on my face and massages my neck, shoulders & arms!
