Take a penny-sized amount of cleanser scrub with a clean, dry spoon or finger, place on your palm, add a few drops of water, and mix to make an emulsion. Apply to face, using gentle, circular motions. Stay away from the eyes. Leave this on for 3-4 minutes, if you have the time. Wash away well with plain water. Follow this with toner, serum and lotion.
You may use this as frequently as once per day. If using this frequently, don’t spend too much time scrubbing/massaging the skin; 10-20 seconds should do. If you use this infrequently, say once or twice per week, you may spend a little more time gently scrubbing/massaging the skin; 30-40 seconds should be okay.
Store the product in a clean, dry place, away from direct sunlight. Keep the cap securely fastened to prevent leaks and spills. This cleanser scrub will keep for a few months without spoiling, if you ensure that no water and/or moisture gets in.
