To start with, pour a dime size amount of the facial powder into the palm of your hand, you can always add more if needed. Activate it with a tiny drizzle of water, using your finger to easily combine the two, and you instantly have a pure paste to cleanse with (using a gentle circular motion) and rinse or leave on as a masque for about 5 - 10 minutes, followed by a warm water rinse. Hydrosol, cold pressed oil, tea, etc. can also be used to activate in place of water.
