We are sure the ubiquitous Vaseline has been part of all your childhoods. It has been around for 140 years and for good reason! Every generation discovers some new ways to use Vaseline and it just works!
From a beauty rookie to a beauty junkie, most know the benefits of using a little dab of Vaseline and it you fall into the category of people that does not know said benefits, here goes…
- It acts as highlighter
- It acts as a super-intense moisturiser
- It acts as a hair sealant
- It acts as eyebrow setting cream, tames fly-aways
- It acts as a skin protectant when you colour your hair
- It helps your perfume last longer
- It acts as a makeup remover
- It converts you eyeshadows into glossy ones
It acts as highlighter
Surprised? Just dab a little Vaseline on the tops of your cheekbones and along the bridge of your nose, and see for yourself! It adds just a hint of shine and gives you sun-kissed, beachy vibes!
It acts as a super-intense moisturiser
Apply it on your chapped lips, cracked heels, face or just areas with dry skin and watch it work wonders and heal your skin!
It acts as a hair sealant
Split ends got you bothered? Just work a little Vaseline through the ends of your hair for smooth and glossy looking hair. We suggest you get a trim soon, though!
It acts as eyebrow setting cream, tames fly-aways
Dab a little Vaseline on your brows and brush through with a spoolie for instantly groomed brows. It works just as well to tame those pesky fly-aways around your hairline. Rub a dot of Vaseline on your palms and smooth down the unruly baby hair.
It acts as a skin protectant when you colour your hair
You all know the tell-tale signs of having recently coloured your hair. You get a ‘wig’ effect around your hair line and it leaves a mark on your ears and the nape of your neck. Avoid this by applying Vaseline on the skin that is prone to get stained, and wipe it off after you have finished colouring your hair. The Vaseline forms a protective barrier on your skin and does not allow it to get stained.
It helps your perfume last longer
Apply a little Vaseline on the spots where you normally spray your perfume. The oil content in the Vaseline helps keep the scent from the perfume on your skin for longer.
It acts as a makeup remover
Massage Vaseline before using a face wash to loosen makeup before you wash it off. The oil content in Vaseline dissolves the makeup and helps you get rid of the makeup more effectively when you use a face wash. It is especially good for removing eye makeup.
It converts you eyeshadows into glossy ones
Apply a layer of Vaseline on your eye lid before applying eyeshadow. This gives a very subtle hint of glossiness to your eye makeup.
