- Apply little Vaseline on your highest point of faces like cheekbones, brow bones, cupid bows, and bridge of the nose that can add a dewy touch to your look.
It is a super easy and budget-friendly way to get glowing skin, without spending tons on highlighters.
And don’t worry vaseline will not clog your pores.
Use As A Cuticle Care Cream:
Vaseline is very effective in protecting and repairing dry cuticles.
Recommended also for soft hands.
- All you have to do is massage Vaseline into the nail bed and fingernails like any other hand cream before sleeping, and then wear a pair of gloves.
- You’ll wake up the next morning with smoother hands and prettier fingernails.
- The cuticles come in the same protein as our skin.
So, when the skin loses moisture they become dry and cracked.
Vaseline ‘s thin and non-greasy layer protects the cuticles from loss of moisture while preventing dryness and also heals cracked skin.
Use To Heak Crack Heels:
Vaseline is one of the best treatments for curing cracked feet and making your feet softer.
