Sparkling Water is another addition for a home remedy face wash.

Currently Korea is dominating that domain and even when they do take ideas from other countries, they are the ones to get them to the mainstream. A thing people are doing now is washing their face with sparkling water.

 

The idea did originate from Japan, but was adopted and popularized by Koreans.

 

“Some spas in Korea have used carbonated mineral water to treat the skin,” Alicia Yoon from Peach and Lily told Coveteur, “Sometimes it’s soaking the face in this water, or the aesthetician may recommend soaking cotton pads with carbonated mineral water and dabbing them onto the skin after cleansing.”

 

Yoon says mineral water works better than the everyday regular water for cleansing the face. It supposed to help enhance your skincare products and could also help with pores without using harsh products.

 

It is also supposed be more gentle for all skin types. But you should be wary of how much is being used. Well there’s only one way to find out if this does anything and that’s by doing it ourselves.

 

Before you get to the sparkling water cleanse the face with whatever you have.

 

While the dunking method is the most tempting it’s not the easiest to do. Instead use the dab method and do it for around 15 seconds. Also make sure that the sparkling water is regular and not with bubbles.

 

The results are going to be minimal, which makes sense as this was done once, but I can attest that it does make the face will feel more firm and a little more refreshed. This possibly did help current skin care products do a better job.

 

In terms of the pores not much happened, but this might need to be repeated to see better results. Definitely not as painless as originally thought to be, but there was warnings not to use too much.

 

Overall if you want to add sparkling water to your skincare routine go for it, but be careful of how much you use and how frequently it’s used.

 

For more information on skin care consider talking to a dermatologist as everyone’s skin is different.
