The Vaseline petroleum jelly is a cult favourite product for a reason. It is a skincare essential that you will find in any household. For generations, it has been been the go-to product of choice for fulfilling our moisturisation needs. Gen Z has seen the umpteen benefits the Vaseline jelly posses and it has blown up all over social media! So, we’re here to refresh all the benefits of Vaseline Petroleum. Here’s how you can make the most of your beloved Vaseline Original Pure Skin Jelly besides using it as a lip balm all around the year.

 

01. Heals cracked feet

If you ask your mother or grandmother for a solution for cracked heels, the answer will always be Vaseline. Dryness is the main cause for cracked heels and vaseline effortlessly restores moisture and repairs the skin. It takes a while to soak in but it works like magic. Just slather on a generous amount on trouble spots, put on cosy socks and leave it on an entire night.

 

 

02. Tames flyaways

Struggling to keep your hair neat and clean? Try pushing it in place with just a tiny amount of petroleum jelly. This comes in handy when you tie your hair and it ends up looking frizzy and messy. All you gotta do is take a little pea-sized amount on your palms, rub them together and very lightly push your hair down. Vaseline is lighter than oil and won’t make your hair look greasy.

 

03. Aids in eyelash growth

A little nourishment always helps. The way oil works on your hair, Vaseline can work on your eyelashes. If you want to grow your eyelashes longer, give them a boost of moisturisation and nourishment with some petroleum jelly. Apply a tiny amount before going to bed, every night.

 

04. Slugging

Slugging

If you don’t know about this brilliant technique, you’ve been living under a rock. Slugging with Vaseline is the best way to combat dryness and dehydration. Just apply your skincare as usual and top it off with a coat of vaseline before hitting the sack. Wash it off in the morning and say hello to healthy, plump skin!

 

05. Acts as an eye cream

Suffering from severely dry under eyes? You know what the answer is. Just how it moisturises dry and cracked heels, it works beautifully under your eyes. It smoothes your skin out and keeps it soft for longer. You can also use it over your eye cream as an under-eye slug.

 

06. Adds a natural glow

If you’re a light makeup wearer, vaseline will give you the prettiest dewy skin. All you need to do is tap it on the high points of your face the way you’d use a highlighter. This also works for people who like the glossy skin finish over a metallic highlighter.
