½ cup equivalent to 8 tbsps. And ¼ is to 4 tbsps.

Cleansers should rinse off with tepid water then follow by splashes of cold/freezing water to seal pores.

All traces of make should be removed before using cleanser.

Double cleansing i.e. cleansing the skin twice instead of once is beneficial, first cleanse remove dirt and dead cells, while second cleanse cleanses the pores well.

Cleanse your face twice daily morning and night.

Moisturize after cleansing with lotion, oil or cream suitable for skin type.

Make sure hands are clean before using cleanser, so as not to be transferring dirt back in to your skin.
