Vaseline comes very close to jollof rice as a favorite in Nigerian homes and it’s no wonder why, you can rely on it to keep you shiny in harmattan and protect your lips and heels from that awfully painful cracking that comes with the season.
We see all the lip balms and lotions and all of that, but Vaseline is basically the greatest of all time when it comes to moisturizing dry skin. Believe it or not, you can also use it in your regular beauty routine no matter the weather.
Here are 5 great Vaseline beauty hacks you should try out.
1. Use vaseline as a highlighter
Dab a little on your cheekbones and other high points to get a naturally radiant glow. You’ll look like a million bucks and no one will be able to tell the difference.
It might not look as good as your Fenty highlighter, but it makes a passable substitute.
2. It’ll make your perfume scent last a lot longer
To make your favorite scent stay for a longer time, put some Vaseline on your pulse points before spraying. It will lock in the fragrance and makes sure your perfume doesn’t disappear with the wind.
It also helps that Vaseline will prevent the perfume applied from drying your skin out causing it to become irritated.
3. It’s handy for use as edge control
Before there was edge control, there was Vaseline. To make your edges slick and get that baby hair look right, rub some on to keep your locks nice and tight.
It also keeps your hair moisturized and prevents it from drying out which can leave your edges flaky.
4. Use to remove eye makeup
Vaseline removes eye makeup quite easily, and is gentler than regular removers. Now you can remove your eye shadow and mascara without the tears.
I mean if that isn’t good news then I don’t know what it.
5. You can use it when painting your nails
It annoys the best of us when we’re painting our nails and the nail polish gets everywhere right?
Well the last time that happened was the last time. Apply Vaseline to the area around your nails and just wipe off when your nails are good and dry. Yup, it works like magic.
