5 Pack of Natural Silkworm Cocoons - Exfoliating
5 pack of Natural silk cocoons.
Each Cocoon made out of 100% silk natural ultra-fine fibres. All the cocoons are hollow and can easily slip it onto your finger. The silkworm cocoons contain a protein called Sericin that is produced by the silkworms.
As part of ancient skincare, these silkworm cocoons are meant to be used as exfoliators; they remove impurities, dead skin, and make up residue while hydrating your skin. Sericin itself has 18 amino acids that move to work as you gently scrub your face with the cocoon. Sericin behaves like a thin layer over the skin that keeps moisture in and impurities out. It also helps to stimulate the skin’s natural collagen production to keep your skin elastic and reduce wrinkles.
How to use them?
Here are some simple steps
1. Wash your face with your usual facial cleansers first.
2. Soak in warm water for 5-10 minutes. Make sure that the entire silkworm cocoon is submerged! The rationale for soaking it in warm water is for the Sericin within the silk fibres to be released. Soaking the cocoon also helps to soften it; you’ll be surprised to find out how firm these cocoons are, they do not yield easily.
3. Fit the cocoon onto your finger and start gently massage the cocoon around your face. Key word here is gently, if too much force is used, it may end up damaging your skin. Focus on troubled areas that you feel need a little more care!
4. Continue on with your usual skincare regime.
