11 Beauty Hacks You Can Do With Petroleum Jelly (Vaseline)

For a long time, petroleum jelly has been used in the medical and beauty industries. This is owing to its emollient qualities and capacity to aid in skin healing.

Petroleum jelly is well known for its skin moisturizing properties, but few people are aware that it can be used for much more than that. Here are 11 beauty tricks that you may use petroleum jelly for.

1. When applying nail polish, use petroleum jelly to keep the color from clinging to your skin. All you have to do is apply petroleum jelly to your cuticle before you begin painting your nails.

2. Petroleum jelly can be used to prevent rusting and corrosion of shaving blades and other iron appliances. To keep them lubricated and smooth, only apply a little layer of petroleum jelly.

3. Apply a small amount of petroleum jelly to the ends of your hair to make it greasy to prevent dry scalp, frizzy hair, and split ends.

4. To make a good facial scrub, mix your petroleum jelly with a small amount of sugar. You may also use this combination to cleanse your lips.

5. To get softer heels, apply petroleum jelly to your feet and wear socks every night before going to bed.

6. Petroleum jelly can also be used to lubricate objects that have become stuck. For example, if removing a ring from a finger is difficult, you can use Vaseline as a lubricant to aid in the removal of the ring.

7. Petroleum jelly can be used to treat minor scrapes and burns on the skin. Apply it gently to the affected area on a daily basis. Make sure the wound is washed and disinfected thoroughly.

8. Petroleum jelly can be used as a base for perfumes and deodorants. This extends the life of the perfume's smell. All you have to do is apply the jelly to your body's pulse points before applying your fragrances or deodorants.

9. You can prevent the dye from spilling over and staining your skin by applying petroleum jelly to your scalp.

10. If you don't have any shoe polish, you can use petroleum jelly instead. Apply your jelly to the surface of your shoe and brush it in until it shines.

11. You can also use petroleum jelly to remove makeup. All you'll need is a cotton pad to gently push on your face without yanking too hard on your skin.
