Hi, I'm Erin Hendley, professional makeup artist, and today I'm going to show you how you can make your own homemade moisturizing exfoliant and it really just involves two key ingredients which is table salt and Vaseline and so I put these two on a palette and we're really just going to mix them together with a brush. You can mix them with your fingers if you are at home and we're just putting it into a paste. So we have the grittiness that's going to exfoliate but we have the Vaseline that's also going to hydrate and moisturize. You have to make a pretty big batch of this if you want to cover your whole body but for the face you don't have to create too much. It is a little clumpy so don't worry if you find it clumping up at home as well. And so you can either take a sponge or the same brush you played around with. I'm going to use both and we're just going to apply this exfoliant onto the face and move it around. It's best applied over any areas of the face that have dead skin because that's the purpose of exfoliating, to just lift the dead skin cells off. Just remember when you do exfoliate that it's going to be on damp skin and also just to do it twice a week, that's all you need to do and it doesn't even have to be over the entire face, just over the desired areas. So you're really just massaging the salt beads into the skin and then you're also hydrating it with the petroleum jelly or the Vaseline that we applied. Let the medium sit on the skin for a minute or two and then rinse clean. I'm Erin Hendley, and I just showed you how to make a homemade hydrating moisturizing exfoliant.
