Vaseline is a staple that can be found in most homes, yet most often it is only used as a remedy for chapped lips or hands, with its full potential not being explored.
Petroleum jelly, or Vaseline, is a byproduct of petroleum production and this jelly is refined many times before selling it to consumers. What if I told you that Vaseline is a much more versatile product than you may think? I’m sure you will be pleasantly surprised when you read these tips!
Vaseline is an excellent moisturizer and it locks moisture in the skin by creating an effective barrier for water, and this makes it an effective component for many beauty hacks. Let’s talk about some of these!
10 Surprising Ways To Use Vaseline For Your Beauty
1) Prolong Your Perfume’s Scent
If you ever wondered if there is a way to make your perfume last longer, Vaseline may be the answer to your queries! Apply some to your wrists and neck before spraying on the perfume and the scent lingers on longer due to the absorbing properties of the Vaseline.
2) Clean Eye Makeup
It is a tedious job to remove mascara and lash glue from the delicate skin of your eyelids… And Vaseline does this job perfectly without irritating the eyes! Simply apply some to your fingers, massage gently on closed your eyes and remove it with a facial tissue or a wet wipe.
3) Tidy Up Manicure
There is nothing more annoying than nail polish that spreads outside the nail, and it can be difficult to remove without ruining your manicure. To prevent this, apply a thin layer of Vaseline around the nails and the nail polish won’t stick to your skin. Perfect manicure every time!
4) Enhance Your Eyelashes
If you find yourself out of mascara, you can dab a bit of Vaseline using an old mascara wand to enhance their look and make them more voluminous. Vaseline also helps to hold the curl for longer, so it is a double treat!
5) Smoothen Your Brows
Brows have a tendency to get unruly and messy throughout the day, and they are never perfect by the time you get back home. To prevent this, use a mascara wand and apply a little bit of Vaseline to your brows and they will stay in place all day.
6) Use It As a Highlighter
If you ever run out of a highlighter, or you want a glowing face without putting on makeup, Vaseline can do the trick. Put a little bit on the high points of your face, like the cheekbones and Cupid’s bow to get a naturally luminous finish:
7) Easily Put In Earrings
It can be really painful to try and get in your earrings when you haven’t worn any for a while. Instead of wrestling with your ears and putting yourself through pain, put a little Vaseline on your ears and the earring will slide in easily.
8) Prevent Blisters
When you buy a new pair of shoes, they may feel uncomfortable and rub with your foot causing hugely uncomfortable blisters. To prevent blisters from ever forming, dab on a little Vaseline to your foot in areas where the shoe causes most friction, and you will prevent any blisters from ever forming.
9) Pamper Yourself With a Body Scrub
The intense moisturizing properties of Vaseline makes it an ideal base for a body scrub. Mix equal amounts of Vaseline and sugar to form a scrub, and use it to exfoliate your body. Finish by washing it off with some soap and water to get baby soft skin.
10) Make a DIY Cream Blush
Do you have a broken powder blush or eyeshadow that you love? Turn it into an awesome cream blush! Mix some Vaseline with the powder and mix well, then store it in a jar. Use this as a blush and apply it to your cheeks for a beautiful glowing finish.
These were some ways in which you can use Vaseline other than its traditional role as a moisturizer. I hope you found something useful in this article that you can use. If so, go grab that bottle of Vaseline and try it out yourself!
