Vaseline aka Petroleum jelly is a handy dandy product that has been used by people for its moisturizing benefits for over one hundred years. People use it for all kinds of things but it has become increasingly popular in the beauty industry because of the many ways you can use it. In particular using Vaseline on your face can help treat and prevent many problems. The best things about it are that it is effective and cheap!
Many women will go to the ends of the earth searching for the fountain of youth. But did you know that applying Vaseline on your face can help treat and prevent wrinkles? Yes, that little jar in your medicine cabinet that you probably only use on your dry elbows or hands actually is conducive for anti-aging. Tyra Banks actually told her viewers that she swears by applying Vaseline every night all around her eyes. Plus it helps prevent moisture loss in the skin.
Another Vaseline use for your face is to make your eyelashes grow. Now there is some debate as to whether it actually causes the hair to grow. Studies have shown that at best petroleum jelly works at conditioning dry hair which can help stop breakage, therefore allowing the hair to grow in longer and thicker.
This one is no surprise but using Vaseline for chapped lips really can help heal chapped lips. The problem here is that Vaseline petroleum jelly is not something you should be ingesting. So instead try something like Alba’s un-petroleum jelly, this is a healthier option. If you wear a lipstick underneath the Vaseline (or alternative to Vaseline) will help give it a nice sheen and can save you some money from buying lip gloss.
