Once you have the base of the sake lees pack, you can start using it.
The first step is a patch test to ensure that the product is suitable for the skin.
Apply a small amount of sake lees on the inside of the arm or other parts of the body and watch it for 7 minutes, then check after another 10 minutes to see if it has become red & if there are any abnormalities. If you feel any tingling or discomfort, wash it off immediately and stop using it.
If you have had no problems with the patch test, immediately apply it to your face and try a sake lees pack.

Just a couple of minutes is all it takes, and your skin will feel much more moist to the touch. It can be used not only on the face but also on the whole body, so apply it to areas of concern and see the effect.
