Because it’s all the rage in Japan and Korea…
I read about this whole “wash your face with carbonated water” trend on The Coveteur a few weeks ago and decided that I had to try it. For starters, it seemed kind of fish to me and I ended up interviewing two experts for my actual story, featured on TODAY.com, so make sure to check that out for the full story.
Can you tell I’m a little nervous about this?! Ha. I’m mostly nervous because, as you guys know, I have sensitive skin and was a little worried the carbonation might irritate me. It ended up being fine- don’t worry 🙂
The first dunk! Truth be told, I got a little unlucky during the first dunk because bubbles ended up going DIRECTLY up my nose and I had the sniffles for the next half hour. The second dunk was a total success.
A little tip: If you aren’t into the whole idea of dunking your face into a bowl, you can always dip a cleansing sponge into the 1:1 ratio mix (full instructions on TODAY.com) and wash your face that way. It might be the better option if, like me, you don’t want to have to wash a giant bowl every day.
For the full story, including what experts think about this trend, check me out on TODAY.com!

Did you also try the Coke hair rinse? Maybe there’s something to a fully carbonated beauty routine …
ha, no! I’ve never tried that but will look into it. The thing is that I actually don’t drink soda so not sure I’d want it in my hair???
