The little jar of petroleum jelly Vaseline can do a lot more than you can imagine. Below are 15 ways to incorporate this magic jelly into your beauty regimen. Now check out which of these life-changing beauty hacks you are going to try with Vaseline this winter…

1. Soothe dry, cracked heels

Vaseline is your cracked heel rescue. Simply slather a thick layer of Vaseline on your feet after a bath or shower. Then, throw on a pair of socks and leave them on overnight for smooth and soft skin the next morning.

2. Tame unruly flyaways

Flyaways and frizzy hair can totally ruin your look. Looking for an instant cure for flyaway hair? You can tame those strands by dabbing on a tiny dot of Vaseline.

3. Get thicker, fuller lashes

Use it as a clear mascara. Apply a tiny bit of Vaseline to your lashes until they’re lightly coated. Your lashes will naturally be fully and thicker.

4. Make your perfume last longer

Prep your skin with some Vaseline on your pulse points before applying perfume. The ointment holds the fragrance to your skin longer, so you can smell good all day long.

5. Help heal sunburn

This ointment is your sunburn relief on-the-go. For a mild burn, apply Vaseline to hydrate soothe and lock in moisture. The jelly creates a barrier also helps keep out any impurities that could cause further irritation.

6. Remove stubborn eye makeup

Take a small amount of Vaseline on your finger and massage the eye area gently until all the makeup comes off.

7. Tame your brows

Can’t find your brow gel? Keep your brows looking well-groomed, just by combing a little Vaseline through your brows with a spoolie to keep them in place for the entire day.

8. Hide your split ends

Rub a little petroleum jelly through your ends to fake smooth ends until you get a haircut.

9. Prevent lipstick from smudging

Lipstick smudging on your teeth? Smooth a thin layer of Vaseline before applying lipstick so the colour won’t transfer from your lips onto your pearlies.

10. Make your skin glow

Just dab small amount on the high points of your face or spread on your legs to create a dewy glow.

11. Protect your skin from hair dye

The next time before you colour your hair at home, remember to apply a small amount of Vaseline around your hairline to prevent any dreadful stains on your forehead or temples.


12. DIY lip scrubs

The jelly balm makes a great lip scrub base. Mix equal parts of sugar and Vaseline for an easy lip scrub. Massage the mixture gently on your lips to exfoliate away dead, flaky cells for baby soft lips.

13. Turn matte lipstick glossy

Use a lip brush to apply a thin layer of Vaseline over any matte lip colour to give a glossy finish.

14. Keep a manicure clean

Remember to line your nails with the petroleum jelly before you paint them. It will keep polish from spreading outside your nails for a mess-free manicure.

15. Fix dry cuticle  

Dry cuticles? Rub a small amount of petroleum jelly into your cuticle and the skin surrounding your nails before you go to bed.
