Category: Beauty secrets of stars



Contrary to what you can think, the Japanese beauty secret lies not in the rice powder, nor in their consumption of sushi (sorry!). No. Their secret weapon is actually a small sponge made with a tuber called konjac. You know?

Made with the famous Amorphophallus konjac root, the konjac sponge has been used for over 1,500 years by the Japanese to gently cleanse and exfoliate their delicate skin. In addition to being suitable for the most sensitive skin (it was initially designed to clean the skin of babies), this sponge is 100% biodegradable and 100% natural (we like!). It also seems that it has a very alkaline pH, that is to say, it has the power to naturally balance the acidity of the skin, which is one of the characteristics of oily skin and acne.

How to use it ?

When dry, the konjac sponge is hard as rock. Just spend a few seconds under warm water to soften and become soft as a cloud. It will also double in size! Then, it is used as is or with a small amount of our favorite cleaner and we massage our face by making small circular movements with the sponge. We rinse his face and the sponge with warm water, and that’s it! Its exfoliating action is so gentle that it is suitable for all types of skin, even the most sensitive (rosacea, eczema, etc.).


How to keep it?

If you use the sponge daily, it lasts 2 to 3 months – it changes when it begins to crumble. Simply rinse with warm water after each use and hang to dry in a well-ventilated area. To ensure good hygiene, it can be disinfected once a week by immersing it in boiling water for 3 to 5 minutes, then it is suspended to dry.


The time is natural and slow trend. That’s why the great classics of cosmetics are back in our bathroom. The one we see everywhere? Rose water, this ancestral elixir with many virtues beauty.


“It takes about 400 fresh roses to make a liter of floral water,” reveals Elodie Valverde, Director of Research and Innovation at Sanoflore. So many quantities of flowers that the rose water becomes an exceptional product. This floral water is obtained by the distillation of fresh flowers which, thanks to the water vapor that crosses the plants, allows to “break the plant cells and release the flower’s active ingredients”. Two precious liquids are obtained: the essential oil of rose and its floral water.


Once the floral water is separated from the essential oil, both are filtered but this step does not prevent the pesticides from passing. This is why it is necessary to opt for organic floral waters to avoid applying on its skin potentially dangerous chemicals.


The rose water has long been shunned for its somewhat old-fashioned image and its smell that, like Proust’s madeleine, inevitably reminded us of our grandmother. But it was not counting the return of natural beauty in our beauty products and slow cosmetics. Because, whether we like it or not, rose water is known for its freshness, for its ability to purify, soothe and strengthen the skin barrier. Used daily, it illuminates the complexion, promotes its transparency and is a powerful anti-aging active. “In addition to its well-known sensory properties, rose water is rich in vitamin A,” says dermatologist Nina Roos. Its exfoliating molecules allow for the renewal of skin cells smoothly and maintain the tissue that is called collagen. ”


Perfectly suited to all types of skin, even the most sensitive, rose water can be used daily. By removing make-up, tonic lotion or rinsing water to remove the limescale left by the tap water, this floral water is indeed a very good beauty ally. Elodie from Sanoflore also proposes to add a little to her day cream to boost its effectiveness but also to spray a little on his clay mask to prevent it dries too quickly. Our grandmothers had told us so!

Silk is a soft and resistant material, recognized for millennia for its physical properties but also for its cleansing properties.

In recent years, big brands have been selling silk pillowcases with a lot of marketing and superfluous packaging, mainly using expensive sales networks.

By avoiding all these unnecessary costs, Maison de la soie offers silk pillowcases of the same quality at a price 2 to 3 times lower.

What is the best silk?

The quality of the silk varies mainly depending on the species of butterfly that produces it. The most recognized silk is mulberry silk. It comes from the cocoons of Bombyx Mori caterpillars that feed only on mulberry leaves. The fibers of this silk are strong, of a constant section and a slightly ivory white gloss.

This silk quality has nothing to do with wild silk or silk tussah that does not have the same properties or appearance at all.

Which size to choose?

The size is mainly a matter of taste and habit but also a question of cost. In France, the most common size for pillowcases is 50×75 cm. The size 65×65 is slightly more expensive and less suitable for large sizes because square pillows take up more space in the head.
