I read it on an old post I believe Concerned Aunt posted it (I think), anyways I just wet my cloth then add about 1 TBSP onto the cloth, let it moisten then apply all over, if I have the time I let it dry on there a few minutes, stay near the sink because it likes to flake off. Then moisten my finger tips do a little srubby dub, and wash off. It really has reduce my pores,and leaves the skin very soft. I had a crater errupt after a liver flush, applied a small about to it several times a day, letting it just sit there as long as possible. It definetly dried it up quickly. You should try it see the results!
