How Much of These Beauty Products Should You Apply?
Serving size: A nickel (near right). Purifying masks can clear up pimples and diminish the appearance of pores, but they quickly sap skin’s moisture if overused.

Serving size: A pea. Whether the formula is designed for combating blemishes or lightening dark patches, a pea-size amount will give you the benefits without irritating the surrounding skin.
