    Wash your hands and nails. Use luke-warm water to help unclog pores. Foam in the hand with a little water and apply to the face. Work in circular strokes, massaging gently. Focus on the t-zone and neck. Rinse off with cool water to help tighten pores. Use a clean face-towel. Tap skin dry to avoid friction.
