Hi. It's only natural to get a little bit of paint on your skin whenever your painting your room or your house or any project. My name is Keeley Selvage with Keeley's Skin Solutions, I've been a clinical aesthetician for over half a decade and I'm going to talk to you about how to get paint off your skin. Now first of all, it is completely unnecessary and a little bit unsafe to use any kind of harsh chemicals, paint thinners, anything like that is completely unnecessary. You don't need it. So first of all if the paint is still a little bit wet all it takes is a little bit of soap and water. And I will show you. I have a little bit of soap and water here, maybe a washcloth, but even something like that isn't necessary. I just have a little cotton pad, this paint is still wet and I'm just going to rub it right off. And it really is that simple. You want to rinse the area a few times to make sure there's nothing left over. If you have sensitive skin any remaining paint on the skin might be irritating. So make sure you wash it a few times. Now if the paint is dry on this skin then it might be a little more difficult but hardly. We have here dry skin and all I'm going to use is a little bit of butter. You can use butter, margarine right from your pantry. If you don't have butter you can use any kind of an oil, baby oil, olive oil, almond oil. You want to rub it on there. It's going to break the paint up a little bit. If you don't have any of those, sometimes on the job site you have orange cleaner. A lot of times you see it in auto mechanic shops, they got a little bit of grit on them, and that will take it right off too. So I just rub the butter on there and I'm just going to rub it right off. And you can see how easy it comes off. I'm just using a little cotton pad. Just spend a few minutes doing that. Put a little bit more butter on there. And then if it doesn't all come off, which if I spent enough time doing this it would, if you still have a little bit of some paint remnants left on your arm really when you're in the shower it'll probably come off just when you rub a loofah on it. It's very easy, no harsh chemicals are needed. My name is Keeley Selvage with Keeley's Skin Solutions and that is how you remove paint from the skin.
