Since we recently posted about using Vaseline as a mascara alternative, I’ve thought of a few more ways (twenty, to be exact) to work Vaseline (petroleum jelly, to be non-brand specific) into your beauty routine. You’ll be surprised at how many different way you can use something so simple – and so inexpensive!
A word about Vaseline before you read on: petroleum jelly’s thick nature makes it a great protectant. Its ingredients are less about infusing moisture deeply into the skin and more about protecting what’s there. For the winter, protecting your skin’s existing moisture is an absolute must. Don’t pass on this versatile product just because of its texture or the fact that it’s petroleum-based. Many wonderful skincare products in this world are derived from other substances that wouldn’t be great on our skin themselves. So don’t judge!
