15 amazing things we can do with our Vaseline

15 amazing things we can do with our Vaseline

. Remove eye makeup
In a pinch, you can take off your eye makeup with Vaseline, then smooth any excess into the dry skin around your eyes. Just be careful not to get any in your eyes.

2. Exfoliate lips
Simply add a bit of sugar to petroleum jelly and apply it to your lips. Rubbing them together for a few seconds will remove any flaky skin. Then, rinse off the sweet exfoliator and add a thin layer of just petroleum jelly to your lips to moisturize them.

3. Tame your eyebrows
Forgot your trusty brow product? Or want a more natural look? Swap your colored product for the clear jelly. Use your finger or a disposable spoolie brush to smooth a little product over your brow hairs.

4. Try as a DIY highlighter
Get the dewy look for way less. Apply a little product on your cheekbones, and glow on.

5. Perfect at-home manicures

Before you paint your nails, apply Vaseline around your cuticles. The product will act as a roadblock, so if you make any mistakes, the polish won’t stick.

6. Protect skin when you dye your hair

If you’re an avid user of boxed hair dyes, you know it’s tricky to avoid getting dye on your skin. Spread the balm right along your hairline, the tops of your ears and the back of your neck to create a layer of protection before application. Not only does it make clean up a breeze, but you’ll avoid getting color all over you skin.

7. Soothe cracked heels
Sandals season is fast-approaching. If your feet need a little TLC before showing them off. Rub some Vaseline on dry, cracked heels before bed, then slip on a pair of socks and snooze.

8. Prevent thigh chafing
Runners, athletes, or anyone who strolls a lot in hot, sticky weather, knows that chaffing can be a painful way to ruin a nice day. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends using petroleum jelly as an inexpensive way to prevent irritation. Spread a small amount of the product on vulnerable areas — like between your inner-thighs or under your armpits — for instant relief.

9. Make perfume last longer

Dab small amounts of Vaseline on your pulse points — your wrists, behind your ears, behind your knees, and even on your ankles — before you spray on your favorite fragrance. The Vaseline absorbs the scent for a more lasting effect.

10. Save your dry cuticles
Even if you’re not using petroleum jelly as an all-over skin moisturizer, you might want to dab some on your cuticles each night. It can keep you from developing cracked, dry fingertips.

11. Create lush lashes
If you’re running low on your fave mascara, Vaseline is an easy alternative. Brush on a small amount of the jelly to make your lashes pop.

12. Rescue broken makeup
This is a tip from GH chief technologist, Rachel Rothman: “Just the other day, when my Physicians Formula blush compact broke, I mixed the remains in a jar with a squirt of Aquaphor to create a cream blush, which I now dab onto my cheeks in the mornings.”

13. Open nail polish bottle with ease
Using a cotton swab and a small dab of Vaseline, spread the jelly inside your nail polish cap. The Vaseline will prevent the nail polish from sealing the lid shut, which makes it easier to remove it the next time you want to paint your nails.

14. Prevent Swimmer’s Ear
Vaseline could also save your ears if you swim a lot. Dip a little on a cotton ball and then mold the cotton ball into each ear before you dive into the water. This keeps any unwanted moisture out.

15. Refresh scuffed shoes
A bit of Vaseline on a soft cloth will polish up dull or scuffed patent leather shoes; simply buff well and shine on—no more messy rags and shoe polish.
