What I do is paint Povodine directly onto my face. I use the the ring finger, the weakest finger (learned in theatre makeup), and massage it in. I then put a drop of Jojoba on my finger and continue to massage it in. So there is not a real measurement. Just a 1st and 2nd coat. Using just enough Jojoba to coat, but not too much that my face turns into a slippery slope.
Povodine was working as is, but found that lightly massaging in Jojoba seems to have accelerated the process, and maintaining moisture too. Pretty cool. My wife noticed so I didn't have to promote the idea. She just has said "I want to do what you are doing..." Pretty cool.
