Vaseline -- The Beauty Balm

Vaseline is one of the items we all keep on our vanity,in medicine cabinets and purses. Why? It's cheap and it has a bevy of uses. It prevents chafing, wind burn, and treats chapped lips. But it does so much more:

  • Dab it onto your brow and cheek bones as a dewy highlight.

  • Coat your lashes with a bit of Vaseline to protect and make them look thicker.

  • Rub it into fingertips to fight cracked cuticles and moisturize nails.

  • After a shower, massage a thin layer of Vaseline into hands and feet and cover with socks. Softens feet and improves circulation.

  • Mix with sea salt as a scrub to gently exfoliate heels.

  • Apply as a barrier before applying hair dye and relaxers.

  • Use as a base for lipstick or simply as a gloss.

  • Retaining water? Smooth on fingers so rings slip on and off easily.
