For a mask: use your fingers to smear the mixture over your forehead, nose, chin, and cheeks.

For a facial scrub: use your fingers to gently scrub the mixture on your forehead, nose, chin, and cheeks. Avoid your eyes and mouth to prevent irritation.

Leave the mixture on your face for 2-5 minutes, allowing it to dry.

Step 4:

Wash the dried mixture off your face using water and a cloth, be thorough. Avoid your eyes and mouth to prevent irritation.
