Best Answer: i recommend scooping out with a plastic spoon, placing the clay on the back of your hand, and applying just enough to cover your face, so you dont get the actual clay dirty if you use your fingers. You apply it all over your face or just on the spot you wanna take care of. Now it says leave it on for 15 min, but i leave it on for about 30 min, just when the maque gets super dry. Then, you go in the sink, and clean your hands, use warm water to take it off. Ive heard that its pretty much alright to leave it on specific spots all night, as its just clay, it should hopefully dry out any problem zits and stuff.
