Default [HELP] Reduce installed app size?

Hello,
I made some small Xposed Modules (most of the work did pyler, thank you ).
apk file has about 300kB, but after install app manager shows size about 1MB. Biggest file is classes.dex in bin folder.

So, my question is...

Can somebody tell me step-by-step how to reduce file size of classes.dex with ProGuard?
Or is there any other way how to have smaller app after installation?

Thank you.

One idea (untested).. try delete libs folder. In this is android support library and i am not sure if we need it.

p.s: maybe this topic should go to the Xposed forum on XDA.
