The stuff is really sticky and makes a mess, so I use it overnight. I put
it on all over my feet, let it dry as much as its going to (feels tacky),
and then put on very thin cotton socks. I then go to bed. In the morning,
I wash it all off, then do the same routine the following night. I use it
for 5-7 nights in a row; any more doesn't seem to make a difference. By
the end of the week you should notice that the skin is noticeably tougher.
I do this routine about a week before the start date of the hike.
Hope this helps,
