Eye makeup removal
We all know how we always struggle removing our eye makeup ‘coz no matter how strong your cleansing oil/milk is, it can take a while to get rid of kajal and eyeliner. This is when petroleum jelly comes to our rescue. This one’s a mix of several waxes along with mineral oil. This means your makeup will be off in no time without having to constantly rub around a sensitive area like the eyes. Moreover, this product will also leave the zone around your eyes soft and moisturised.
Acts as a manicure cream
Vaseline has the power to soften cuticles. Hence, once you’ve polished your nails and the varnish has dried up, apply some petroleum jelly on top of the polish. This will prevent sticking as well as keep your fingers feeling smooth.
Provides nourishment to the hair
Think your hair lacks shine and suffers from too many split ends? Embrace Vaseline. Too many split ends means that your hair has become rather dry and frizzy. You need to moisturise your locks and provide them nourishment by way of Vaseline. Take a very small quantity otherwise your hair will end up looking greasy. Apply some of it on the scalp before going to bed and make sure you massage the scalp a bit. This will help you keep your hair moisturised and glossy.
With age, you will notice that your lashes become thinner and even begin to fall. Petroleum jelly contains moisture rich properties. Hence, applying Vaseline on eyelids will strengthen the base of your lashes while the moisture in it will help premature breakage. Gorgeous lashes, here we come!
Soothing agent for feet
As much as we love pedicures, our choc-a-bloc schedules often deter us from pampering ourselves. To keep your feet moisturised and soothe cracked heels, apply some of it on the heels of your feet and toe nails before hitting bed. This will help soften calluses and keep your toe nails moisturised.
