Uses of Vaseline that are borderline genius!

August 3, 2018

Vaseline has been around since decades. But what is it really used for?

Other that moisturizing your lips this multitasking cream is not only used for burns or rashes but can be used from shoe shining to fixing squeaky doors. Who ever thought of that? The Vaseline Petroleum Jelly is a go-to source to almost everything.

1. Easy Eye makeup remover.



Just a few swipes of Vaseline can remove your eye makeup very easily. Make sure you rinse it off immediately to avoid any irritation.


2. To help your fragrance last a little longer.


Rub Vaseline on your pulse points to make your perfume stay a little longer.


3. Open your Nail polish bottle with ease.


Do you struggle to open your nail polish bottles?

Rub some Vaseline around the neck of the nail polish bottle. It will prevent the build-up of nail polish over the neck of the bottle, and thus, will make it easy to open.


4. Fixes Stuck zippers.


This situation can be very annoying.

Apply a bit of Vaseline on both the sides of the stuck zipper and unstick it easily.


5. To remove blackheads easily.


Get rid of blackheads by using a plastic wrap and Vaseline.


6. Heals Cracked feet.


Vaseline is one of the best treatments to heal cracked feet and make your feet softer.  Vaseline also helps to keep your whole body smooth and supple.

Rub a coat of Vaseline on your feet at night. Put on a pair of clean socks and go to sleep.

The oils present in petroleum jelly help to seal in the moisture, and it stays on the surface of the feet for longer hours than other water–based lotions, thus promoting quicker healing.


7. Prevents Chafing.



Vaseline is a great chafing prevention product that can help prevent wind burns and chapping while running, especially in winters.
Apply a small amount of Vaseline to the areas that are prone to chafing to prevent further rashes or irritation.

When you do so, those areas will glide rather than rubbing over each other, and thereby prevent chafing.


8. To define your lashes.


You can use Vaseline to grow longer, fuller lashes. Use a mascara brush to apply some. Apply daily overnight and you’ll see the results soon!


9. Skin Highlighter.


A tiny dab of Vaseline on your cheekbones and brow bones can add a dewy touch to your look.

It is a super easy and budget-friendly way to get glowing skin.


10. Cuticle Care


Vaseline is an effective salve for protecting and repairing dry cuticles. It is also recommended for soft hands.

Massage Vaseline into the nail bed and fingernails before sleeping, and then wear a pair of gloves. The next morning, you will get up with softer hands and shinier fingernails.

The cuticles are made up of the same protein as our skin. So, they become dry and cracked when the skin loses moisture. The thin and non-greasy layer of Vaseline protects the cuticles from moisture loss and, at the same time, prevents dryness and heals cracked skin as well.


11. Lip Scrub


Vaseline can be used as a lip scrub and help you get rid of dry skin. All you need is some sugar and mix it with Vaseline, Gently massage your lips with this mixture. Wipe your lips, apply lip balm and you’re good to go!

(Tip To Pick Sugar Of Your Choice:

While selecting sugar for the above lip scrub, here is what you need to know – brown sugar is softer, white granulated sugar is more abrasive, and caster sugar is the finest. Now, the choice is yours!)


12. Aids earring insertion .

Having difficulty inserting earrings or studs? Painful much? Vaseline is the best pain free method.


13. Protect your phone screen.

Vaseline may help if you have scratches on your phone or tablet screen. It requires reapplication, though.


14. Save your scalp!

Do you dye your own hair? Apply Vaseline around your hairline to prevent those embarrassing color stains on your skin.


15. Skin lotion

You haven’t lived until you’ve tried the best lotion ever made with baby lotion, Vaseline and Vitamin E cream. It feels so luxurious, but it’s super cheap to make. Great gift idea!
