Vaseline is nothing but plain petroleum jelly that is colourless and odourless. Vaseline is one of the most popular products that has diverse uses exploiting its lubricating, coating and moisturising potentials. So here are some of the beauty and health tips where Vaseline comes in handy. It can be used for-


Dry Cracked Lips-

Are you having trouble repairing dry chapped lips? Then try using vaseline instead of other fancy lip balms for a while and see how it plumps and relieves your lips.

Grow Thicker & Longer Eyelashes-

Applying vaseline every night on the roots of the eyelashes will not only nourish the lashes it will also help them from growing longer looking lashes.

Skin Moisturiser-

Why spend $$ on expensive looking moisturisers in the market when you can get the same result using this plain inexpensive vaseline.

Tame The Eyebrows-

It is one of the remedies for thinning or sparse eyebrow hair. Most reviews prove that after about three months, eyebrows grow back, especially if you had tweezed or over plucked brow hair. It also keeps brow hair moisturized while it grows back.

Rough Elbows & Knees-

It not only moisturises the skin but it also helps in softening the rough elbows and knees.

Soften Nail Cuticles-

This multi-purpose petroleum jelly also helps in softening the dry nail cuticles making them look perfect for manicure.

Soothe Shaved Area-

It has a soothing effect on the skin while it heavily moisturises it which makes it easy to use on all skin types.

Heal New Tattoos-

Vaseline can be used to cover a new tattoo while it heals. Some might say that vaseline is not good for tattoo as it clogs the pores. The optimum way to use it is by having a very thin layer on top of the tattoo.

Dab On Pulse Points-

That favorite designer perfume of yours wouldn’t stay any longer than two hours? Worry not! Try dabbing very little vaseline on those pulse points before spraying perfume there and see how magically the fragrance lingers on you all day long.

Stick Down The Flyaways-

If you are going for a slick hairstyle like a ponytail or braid, you can use a very little amount of vaseline to get those flyaways to settle down.

Make-up Remover-

Shelling out so much on makeup removing liquids, wet wipes and micellar water is madness when you can get the job done at a fraction of the price.

Minor Cuts-

Vaseline not only keeps wounds clean and moist but also provides an occlusive layer, thus keeps the wound covered. It keeps germs out decreasing the risk of infection. Apart from that, it also hydrates the wound which speeds up the healing process.

So go to the nearest chemist and get a tub of Vaseline and start using them like never before.
