12 BEAUTY USES OF VASELINE
This multi-purpose product costs barely a few Euros and has many virtues. Here are 12 ways to incorporate it into your beauty routine.
1. REPAIR LIPS
Do you have dry or chapped lips? Rich in vitamins A and B, Vaseline repairs them wonderfully. In the evening, before going to sleep, apply generously to the latter Results? In the morning, your mouth is soft and smooth again. Good to know: There are Vaseline products made specifically for the lips: look for “Lip Therapy” on the packaging.
2. FORTIFY EYELASHES
What woman does not dream of long unfurled eyelashes? Dip a cleaned mascara brush in petroleum jelly and apply it to your lashes every night, being careful not to get any in your eyes. As the days pass, you will find that they will be stronger and healthier.
3. CREATE A BEAUTIFUL EYEBROW LINE
Do your eyebrow hairs tend to ruffle? Still with your mascara brush, apply a light coat of petroleum jelly to your eyebrows while brushing them to give them the desired shape. The product will dry and your eyebrow line will stay flawless all day long.
4. SOFTEN THE HAIR
Your hair is dry and dull? Regularly apply a tiny bit of product to the ends. Be careful, be sure to apply only a very small amount, and only on the ends, at the risk of seeing your hair grease quickly.
5. AVOID SMUDGING WHEN DYEING
When you make a dye, apply the pomade on your face at the level of the parting of the hair and on your ears. This will prevent staining your skin and protect it from harsh hair dye ingredients .
6. SOFTEN HANDS AND FEET
Do you have dry hands and feet? Here too, Vaseline works miracles! Apply a small layer every night to make them silky and smooth. Also take care of your cuticles by massaging them with the product. This will soften the fabrics; prevent them from drying out or chapping.
7. IMPROVE THE APPLICATION OF THE VARNISH
Over time, the cap of your favorite polish can dry out and get stuck. Apply a little petroleum jelly to the edge to make it easier to open. Also remember to spread a small layer around your nails before applying your varnish. This will make it easier to erase smudges.
9. REMOVE YOUR MAKE-UP
Don’t have any more makeup remover at home? Vaseline is a great alternative! Place a small drop on a cotton pad, and gently rub your skin and your eyes closed.
10. RELIEVE INSECT BITES
Do you suffer from itching from an insect bite? Vaseline helps soothe tickling. You can also apply it in case of nettle stings.
11. MAKE YOU’RE PERFUME LAST LONGER
Apply a little Vaseline to the places where you usually take your pulse, namely on your wrist and the back of your neck. Then spray your perfume on these places. Vaseline, greasy and moisturizing, will serve as a base because fragrances have little chance of holding on to dry skin.
12. APPLY YOUR SELF-TANNER
Before applying self-tanner, put a thin layer of petroleum jelly on the dry parts of the skin, namely the elbows, knees or ankles. This will give you a more even tan.
