Brighten: Himalayan Salt Exfoliator with Apple Cider Vinegar
We would love you all to create these homemade products yourself and let us know how you got on by tagging #antiageingapril #HealthistaTV #dermalhealth on Instagram.
Our second Anti-Ageing April video recipe is how to make a Himalayan Salt Exfoliator with just three ingredients – Himalayan Salt, mint (dry or fresh) and of course our ingredient of the week apple cider vinegar.
Himalayan salt, is harvested with minimal processing, in mines in the Himalayan mountains and is rich in numerous natural minerals and trace elements such as calcium, iron, potassium and magnesium, that the body needs. Its pink colour is due to trace amounts of iron oxide or rust.
Using Himalayan salt as a natural exfoliator will help to buff away the dead skin cells while the mint will help to freshen your skin. What’s more, mint leaves can act as a mild astringent that helps to tone the skin.
As mentioned in our first anti-ageing video recipe, our ingredient of the week – Apple Cider Vinegar – has many benefits, such as helping to cleanse the scalp, rejuvenate damaged skin, balance skin pH and create skin harmony with its antibacterial and anti fungal properties.
Common conditions like dry skin, acne and eczema can be treated with apple cider vinegar as due to the skin being naturally acidic, the pH level becomes rebalanced when applying the product and acts as a barrier for the skin.
You can expect your skin to feel smoother, pores tighter and complexion more dewy due to its astringent, exfoliating abilities on our skin. It’s also rejuvenating for the skin as it is packed with natural antioxidants.

Dilution ratio is crucial though to ensure you do not burn your skin, be sure to follow Una’s steps exactly, in order to make a fantastic natural product that’s also safe for your skin.
Never apply undiluted apple cider vinegar to the skin as it can cause harm. Always speak to a professional, especially if you have damaged skin.
