Don’t we all have a jar of Vaseline somewhere in our house? I bet it’s probably still a full jar too! Vaseline is a product that can be used in so many different ways with many different purposes. Other than the obvious use of Vaseline for small cuts, and a skin protectant, here are a list of how you can use up your Vaseline and why.
1.) Moisturize Your Lips
We have all probably done this at some point in our lives. Way before we knew about all these different lip glosses, we used to use good ol’ fashion Vaseline. And it is still great for that purpose! It keeps your lips hydrated while giving you that perfect gloss!
2.) Softens Your Feet
Does your foot feel like sandpaper? Vaseline can do the trick to soften those bad boys up! All you have to do is soak your feet in warm water for about 10 minutes. After that, gently rub your foot with a pumice bar (which can be purchased at your local Sally Beauty Supply store). Lastly, rub some Vaseline onto your feet, throw on a pair of socks, go to sleep and forget about it. When you wake up in the morning, you will notice that your feet are a lot softer. Do this about 2-3 times a week to maintain softness.
3.) Tames Your Brows
Bushy brows? Or sparse brows that just can’t seem to stay down? Use a small dab of Vaseline onto your fingertip and apply it onto your eyebrows! They are guaranteed to stay in place. Remember to use a small amount however, you don’t want to walk around with glossy brows.
4.) Removes Eye Makeup
Don’t you hate it when you can’t seem to get that waterproof mascara off at night? Vaseline will get rid of it! Using a towel/cloth, put a small amount onto it and gently rub it on your eye and that mascara comes sliding right off!
So there you have it! No need to have a jar of Vaseline just taking up space anymore. Now it has its purpose! I hope these tips are helpful! Keep in mind this substance can clog up your pours and you don’t want to over use it!
Remember to stay beautiful….Inside and Out.
