Hi, I'm Erin Hendley, professional makeup artist, and today I'm going to show you an exfoliating procedure. So basically the first step when we are exfoliating is to make sure that we have a moisturized hydrated face and so basically that means that we need to have water splashed onto the face before we put on not necessarily a harsh ingredient, but something that's going to roughen the skin that's then going to continue to smooth it out. So an exfoliator is basically a paste with beads in it. Sometimes it's sand and sometimes it's just microbeads filled with things and the purpose of it is to slough off any dead skin cells and just create the skin for being seamless and preventing any flakiness. So we're just going to go onto the skin. You can do it all over or just on pinpointed areas. It's really up to you and just work it in with your fingertips or with the brush, sponge is okay too and just move it in tiny circles. It's a great alternative if you don't have an expensive brush that's automated to do this and it really gives the same effect. It's good to just work it into the skin and micro-manage, work in minute areas at one time and then once you've exfoliated, it's good to keep in mind to only do this a few times a week. You don't want to irritate the skin. It's really just something to upkeep. So it's not a party of your daily routine, twice, maybe three times max a week. After you've seen that most of the sand has disintegrated and washed off, it's good to rinse with some water and then maybe with a cleanser and once that's done, apply with some moisturizer and your skincare is complete from exfoliating. I am Erin Hendley, and I just showed you exfoliating procedures.
