Wash your hands.

Use a pump dispenser or a clean spoon to scoop out enough emollient (not your fingers).

Apply emollient downwards in the direction of hair growth and smooth it on your skin in a thin layer. Don’t rub it in! Wait for it to soak in, thick emollients may take up to 10 minutes. Try to do this at least twice a day, even more often if your skin is really dry.
