Unexpected ways to use Vaseline

Petroleum jelly can pretty much help you with any beauty needs. Here are many ways to save time and money with this product.

Your skin is in need of hydration? Vaseline can double as a moisturizer for your lips, body and cuticles.

Give your skin a nice glow. Dab a bit of Vaseline on your cheekbones to give your face a nice dewy finish

If you forgot to put on SPF at the beach and your skin is paying the price, liberally apply to your burns. It will protect your skin from further sun damage.

Want soft lips? Make a DIY lip scrub. Add a little honey and sugar to your Vaseline, and scrub away dead skin cells.

Moisturize and mask your split ends. Apply to the split ends of your hair to prevent further hair damage. Be careful--too much on your hair might make it greasy.

Never have trouble opening your nail polish bottles again. Wipe a bit of the jelly around the rim your polishes for easy uncapping.

Want stronger and longer eyelashes? Everyday before you go to bed add a little Vaseline to your eyelashes. Your lashes may appear stronger and thicker in as little as 2 weeks.
