DIY Uses for Vaseline



From an article by one of my favorite Youtube Makeup Gurus:

1.) Lip scrub: Mix some Vaseline with sugar for a DIY lip scrub.  Here’s a video I made to show you how.

2.) Skin softener: Rough elbows, feet or hands? Just put Vaseline on any dry spots and put mittens or socks on before you go to sleep – you’ll wake up with baby-soft skin!

3.) Makeup remover: Vaseline removes eye makeup in a few simple swipes – just make sure you are rinsing it off afterwards to avoid any eye irritation.

4.) Hair dye protector: If you dye your hair at home, be sure to apply some Vaseline along your hairline so the dye doesn’t stain your skin.  It also protects your skin from the harsh chemicals in the dye!

5.) Chafing healer:  Protect your nose from chafing during a cold or chilly weather by applying a dab of Vaseline.

6.) Highlighter: Apply a tiny dab of Vaseline to the top of your cheekbones for a pretty, radiant sheen.  It can also be used to help you achieve the “wet” eye makeup look that was all over fall runways.

7.) Cream-ify: Turn any powder eyeshadows or blushes to cream by mixing them with a bit of Vaseline. Use your concoction as a tinted lip balm that will keep your lips smooth all winter long.

8.) Cuticle protector: Keep your cuticles soft and moisturized by massaging Vasline into them.  If you do this before a manicure, this will also keep your nail polish from getting on your cuticles!

9.) Smooth flyaways:  If you’re going for a super-sleek pony, use a tiny bit of Vaseline to smooth and tame any flyways.  Remember, a little goes a long way!

10.) Make your perfume last: Apply a bit of Vaseline to your pulse points to make your perfume last longer.
