"Gentle exfoliation is another key step to the Korean skin care ritual," says Jane. To help scrub off dead skin, she recommends a Konjac sponge. It preps the skin so that your moisturizer can work better. They can be used alone or with your gentle cleanser. Julep's sponge is infused with charcoal, to help clarify the skin.
