10 Ways To Use Vaseline To Amp Up Your Beauty Routine

So, we’ve already discussed that Vaseline can be used for way more than just lip balm, and I don’t know about you, but I never knew it had so many uses. It can be applied specifically to your beauty routine to make your life a little easier, too, so if you thought it was some sort of secret miracle product before, you’re really going to love it now.

Learn 10 ways that you can be using Vaseline to do everything from highlight your cheekbones to unstick those hard to open fingernail polish bottles. Trust me, these hacks are so good that you’re going to wonder why you didn’t know about them sooner.

1. Moisturize Cuticles

Don’t let your hands get too dry. A little bit of Vaseline goes a long way and can really get those cuticles and nail beds moisturized in no time.

2. Remove Lash Glue

If you’ve got lash glue that you just can’t seem to get off, let Vaseline help you out. A Q-tip and a dab of petroleum jelly will do just the trick.


3. Highlight Cheekbones

Instead of spending money on highlighter, you can just use some Vaseline to have the light bouncing off of those cheekbones. It’s especially great to use if you’re in a hurry. Add some Vaseline to your cheekbones and go!


4. Soothe Chapped Lips

So, you probably already knew Vaseline made a great lip balm, but it can also be used as a base in many lip scrubs, which will really come in handy during the winter months. Learn how to make your own here.


5. Easily Put In Earrings

If you have sensitive ears, Vaseline can make earrings super easy to put in without all of the extra poking, tugging and irritation.


6. Open Nail Polish Effortlessly

We’ve all had those nail polish bottles that we just can’t seem to get open. Prevent that from happening again by adding a little Vaseline to the rim of the bottle. It’ll open easily each and every time from that moment on.


7. Make Your Own Lip Stain

You can easily DIY your own lip shades, eye shadow and more by adding a little Vaseline to makeup you already own.

8. Get Flawless Manicures

A little Vaseline around your nails will keep the polish from getting on your skin. Who knew doing your nails at home could be so easy?


9. Have Fuller-Looking Lashes

Applying a little jelly to your lash line will give you thicker looking lashes. You can even skip the mascara step if you’d like.


10. Make Your Perfume Last Longer

Applying Vaseline where you’re going to spritz your perfume will help the scent last for hours. Because don’t you hate when it wears off?


If you haven’t already, go out and get yourself a few jars of this stuff. It’s sure to come in handy all of the time.
