Vaseline petroleum jelly is such a versatile product that can be used for various purposes. It is truly fascinating to know that it could do wonders for your skin and save you from buying tons of different products.
Who knew that a mere bottle of petroleum jelly could transform your beauty routine forever! Today Glamorweb is going to tell you some weird and fantastic vaseline beauty hacks that will enhance your beauty without spending any money.
1. Remove dark circles
Take one teaspoon of vaseline and one teaspoon of aloe vera gel into a bowl. Mix it well. Your DIY serum is ready. Gently massage it under your eyes and leave it overnight.
2. DIY highlighter
You can use vaseline as a DIY(Do It Yourself) highlighter as well, and obviously, it will work with any skin tone! Just apply a small amount of petroleum jelly to your cheekbones and under-eye area for a dewy look.
3. Hair conditioner
Want long hair!! Then go for vaseline hair tonic and scalp conditioner. I am recommending this to you because I use it. And I got outstanding results from it.
4. Act as a cuticle cream
The American Academy of Dermatology recommends vaseline as an affordable way to care for cuticles. Vaseline heals hardened cuticles and soothes and softens them. Dab a cotton pad in petroleum jelly and apply it to your cuticles.
5. Makeup removal
Vaseline is petroleum-based; it gently and simply dissolves almost any makeup of incredibly waterproof mascara. And unlike some makeup removers, vaseline is safe to use around your eye area.
6. Hydrating moisturizer
Replace your moisturizer with vaseline for healthy, baby-soft skin. Vaseline doesn’t seep into your pores or cause any breakouts and can be used in tiny amounts for oily skin as well.
7. Keep perfume from fading
If you need some extra life out of your fragrance, rub a small amount of vaseline onto your pulse points before application. The balm will act as an additional moisturizing lock for the scent, helping it last even longer.
8. Soothe dry heels
Vaseline Jelly can be an effective overnight treatment for dry, cracked feet and heels. Just apply vaseline on your heels and wear socks. Leave it overnight.
9. Pink lips
Do you want to get pink lips naturally? Melt the vaseline in a double boiler. Then add natural rose petals and powder them. Mix it well and strain into a clean container, then refrigerate until it sets. Your DIY lip balm is ready.
10. Conceal split ends
While it won’t reverse them entirely, Vaseline seals and locks in moisture to prevent split ends from getting worse. Only use it at the ends of your hair – not on the roots.
11. Anti-aging treatment
Take one teaspoon of vaseline and two vitamin E capsules in a bowl. Mix it well, apply it to your face, and gently massage for about 5 minutes.
12. Remove eyelash glue
Vaseline breaks down the molecules in lash glue and softens the bond between fake and natural lashes. Just dip a cotton ball into vaseline and close your eyes. Rub the ball lightly over your lashes. Wait for five minutes, and then rinse your eyes with warm water.
13. Natural mascara
If you do not want to use mascara or are out of mascara, then apply vaseline to your eyelashes. It gives a mascara effect to your eyes without mascara.
Take one spoon of gram flour, 1/2 spoon of turmeric powder, and three spoons of milk powder in a bowl. Mix it well, then add 1/2 spoon of vaseline to it. Make a paste and apply it to your face in the direction of hair growth and leave it to dry. Once dry, remove the paste pulling in the opposite direction of hair growth.
15. Tame brows and flyaways
If your baby’s hair sticks out and makes the hairdo look untidy, then use some vaseline to tame the flyaways. You can also apply a little bit of petroleum jelly on your eyebrows with a spoolie brush, and your brows will look good for the rest of the day!
16. DIY lip scrub
Chapped lips!!! Mix 2 tablespoons of Vaseline Jelly with one tablespoon of white sugar to create a scrub. Then, gently rub this DIY scrub on your lips with the help of a brush in a circular motion for a minute to get the soft lips.
17. Repel at-home hair color
Vaseline is an effective stain guard. Apply vaseline on your hairline, neck, ears, back of the head, and hands before dyeing your hair to prevent it from staining your skin.
18. Make manicure mess-free
Use a cotton swab to rub vaseline on cuticles and the skin around nails to create a barrier between the polish and skin. After you’ve painted your nails, you can wipe off the petroleum jelly and any polish mistakes along with it.
19. Eliminates self-tanner streakiness
Rub a little Vaseline along your wrists, ankles, elbows, and knees before applying self-tanner to keep the formula from clinging to any dry areas and avoid patchiness.
20. Make makeup glossy
Vaseline acts the same way concealer does to help eye shadow look more vibrant. However, vaseline gives the shadow more grip and makes it look more luminous. Just rub a little bit onto your lids before proceeding with your usual eye shadow techniques. You can also apply vaseline on lips as a lip gloss.
21. Under eye moisturizer
Apply vaseline under the eyes right before sleeping to lock in moisture. It helps to remove your wrinkles or crow’s feet near your eyes.
22. Apply vaseline to your teeth
What!!.. It may seem odd but life-saving. Vaseline prevents your lips from sticking to your teeth and is a standard preventative measure when applying lipstick. Vaseline can help avoid getting lipstick on the teeth.
23. Cure minor injuries
Vaseline prevents the wound from drying out and forming a scab. Wounds with scabs take longer to heal. It will also help prevent a scar from getting too large, deep, or itchy.
24. Remove chewing gum from hairs
Remember doing this as a child? Coat the gum and surrounding hair with a generous dollop of vaseline and gently tug to remove the wad sans snags.
25. Freshen up leather
Whether it’s a leather jacket or your favorite shoes, rub Vaseline overworn spots to make them shine again.
26. Open a stuck jar
Whether it’s a pickle jar or a hard nail polish top, putting vaseline around the stuck lid will help loosen things up for easier removal.
