This is my #1 beauty product! I use it everyday, multiple times a day, all over my body. If you have nothing else, but a jar of petroleum jelly, you are set. Check out my favorite things to do with Vaseline!
Want longer, fuller eyelashes?
This is my all time favorite beauty tip. I've used it for years. Probably 10+ years ago, I read that Jennifer Aniston put Vaseline around her eyes at night to hydrate and smooth any fine lines. I immediately started this routine. Anything Jen does, everyone should do. No questions asked. It was a bonus when I realized my eyelashes were growing too! People started noticing their length and thickness WITHOUT mascara on! (The compliments I get when I do wear mascara are common- Horn tooted) I've since read, just about everywhere, that indeed, Vaseline makes eyelashes grow. Vitamin E oil, coconut oil, and a bunch of other oils do the same thing, but I like Vaseline cause it's thick and it's available EVERYWHERE. Ever stop at a gas station and find vitamin E or coconut oil? Doubt it. Vaseline? Exactly.
Disclaimer: I'm no professional photographer or makeup artist. My pics are mostly untouched. My only changes are to "brightness". These pics in particular were taken in front of a window, so as in nature, the light was changing. I just want to make this clear because of all the photoshop that happens in media today. I want people to know I'm real. Those bags, dark circles, scars, and EYELASHES, are as real as they get, people!
Apply Vaseline or petroleum jelly like lotion on rough areas like elbows & knees. Or apply to feet or hands and cover with clean socks or gloves and go to bed. Wake up to super soft skin! And possibly lost socks/ gloves. You can also apply Vaseline around your eyes at night to help hydrate and smooth fine lines! Do it. You know you wanna age gracefully like Jen Aniston.
DIY lip plumper!
Mix 2-3 tablespoons of Vaseline or
petroleum jelly and 5-10 drops of cinnamon extract in a small container. Add to your lips with a cotton swab. Your lips will burn pretty bad for less than a minute. Lol! That means it's working! Applying it with your finger will leave traces of the extract on that finger. It will burn if you touch your eyes/ face. So, use a swab!
Custom lip gloss!
-Mix a little eye shadow, lipstick, or Kool-Aid to 1-2 tablespoons petroleum jelly and put into a small container. Apply to lips as needed.
-Or, my favorite, just add Vaseline as clear gloss! Super easy!
