With every year the obsession with cosmetics is growing. More and more women are using many cosmetics spending hundreds of dollars to only harming their skin even more!
Here are some ways you can save all that money by just replacing most of your cosmetics with Vaseline!
The humble Vaseline which has been around since it was launched in 1872, is probably the single most versatile beauty product you can find. There is probably not a single American home that does not have a jar of Vaseline. Here are 12 ways you can use it to make your life better.
1. Natural Skin Glow
No time for makeup? When rushing out of the house, apply Vaseline as a highlighter to the brow bone, upper cheeks, and inner corners of your eye for a natural, glowy look.
2. Chapped Lips
Vaseline is the best lip balm you can find. To protect your lips from drastic weather changes, apply a thin layer of Vaseline. I can soften, hydrate, and moisturize dry, weathered lips.
3. Anti-Wrinkle Cream
If those expensive anti-aging creams have not given you the results they promised, give Vaseline a shot. It can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Before going to bed, apply Vaseline to crow’s feet to moisturize and help increase your skin’s elasticity.
4. Stain Protection
When coloring hair or touching up roots, apply a layer of Vaseline to your hairline and areas on your neck. The lubricated jelly acts as a barrier to prevent skin from staining.
5. Cracked Feet
Winters can be harsh on your feet as your skin becomes dry and cracked. By applying a coat of Vaseline to the bottom of your feet and covering it overnight with a sock, you can lock in the moisture so that your feet stay soft.
Instead of splurging money at expensive salons, many women prefer to do their manicures at home. If you prefer to do your manicures yourself, applying Vaseline around your cuticles can prevent polish overflow and spillage, creating a flawless, clean manicure at home.
7. Taming Hair Strands
You can also use Vaseline as a substitute for hair paste or gel. The thickened texture of Vaseline makes it easy to tame individual hair strands and pieces with your fingers.
8. Preserving Razors
Vaseline can be used to protect metal surfaces from rusting. Apply a layer of Vaseline to razors to prevent them from rusting.
9. Eyelash Moisturizer
Want your eyelashes to be thick and long? Coating lashes with a small amount of Vaseline can help stimulate lash growth. Vaseline will also help your eyelashes become thicker and healthier by keeping them moisturized.
10. Perfume Base
Keep smelling great for longer with this simple hack. Dab a small amount of Vaseline on pulse points before spraying on your favorite perfume. Doing this can extend its longevity to maintain the fragrance all day long.
11. Eye Makeup Remover
Just got back home after a long night and can’t wait to hit the sack? Just apply a thin layer of Vaseline to eyelids and in one swipe remove even the most-persistent and waterproof makeup.
12. Nail Polish Lids
Nail polish lids become tight as the polish between the lid and the bottle dries up. Spreading a thin layer of Vaseline around the inside of a nail polish lid will let you unscrew them easily. A simple and effective solution.
