~My TOP TEN uses for VASELINE Jelly.

Call them what you like, Classics, Legends, Staples, Tried-N-True products that have been around forever--- your mother used them, even grandmother--- and it has claimed a deserving spot of greatness on your beauty shelf. After receiving a special Vaseline Healing Recipe Kit honoring it, consisting of goodies to help me mix the ultimate moisturizing recipe, I thought of sharing its uses you didn't even know you could do with it. It's like your go-to white t-shirt, it never lets you down, always works and keeps you looking fabulous!

Besides being around since 1870, Vaseline Jelly is the original dry skin healer, and to this day it still effectively locks in moisture to deeply heal dry skin. Triple purified to be 100% pure and safe, VaselineĆ¢ Jelly has many protective and preventative uses, including personal care, baby, beauty, athletic, and more. Here are my TOP TEN uses.

1. BODY SCRUB: Mix 2 tablespoons of Vaseline with 1 tablespoon of coarse sea salt to create a scrub. Next, apply to legs and rub in a circular motion to buff skin gently and help get rid of dry skin. Rinse, and apply a thin layer of Vaseline Jelly, which moisturizes to heal dry skin.

2. SHAVING TREATMENT: Shave legs, after leaving the shower, hydrate and soothe skin by applying Vaseline Jelly to legs while skin is still slightly damp. Next, apply a warm washcloth to open pores and allow moisturization to seep deeper. Lastly, gently rub in to lock in moisture and make skin soft and smooth.

3. FOOT TREATMENT: Before bed (or I do this before I put on my Pilates socks), apply a layer of Vaseline Jelly to the heels and balls of your feet. Cover with a pair of socks, let feet soak in Vaseline either overnight or while in your snow boots all day. Remove socks, at the end of the day or in the morning, wipe away any residue if some remains and relish at how soft your feet can really get! (One of my all time favorites!!!)

4. MOISTURIZING BLUSH & EYE SHADOW: Mix a dab of Vaseline with loose eye shadow or blush. Apply to cheeks for a dewy blush or apply to eye lids for a shiny eye shadow, which is so "IN" now.

5. EYE RETOUCH: Apply Vaseline to a Q-tip and dab under eyes to reduce the appearance of fine lines or on to eyelids to lock in moisture. Also, a good way to remove any shadow, liner or mascara that has gone astray.

6. MANICURE TREATMENT: Apply a dab of Vaseline to fingernails to keep them resilient while also keeping cuticles soft. Also, massage into fingers for five seconds each- great to do while watching television or reading a book.

7. MOISTURIZING HAND CREAM: similar to the foot treatment, before bed, apply a layer of Vaseline to the top and bottom of your hands, cover with a pair of cotton gloves, let soak overnight and remove in the morning. If this is impossible to do, apply a thin layer, make sure you don't use your hands for at least 15 mins, and keep rubbing it in. You will be amazed at how quickly it absorbs and how quickly yours hands get super soft!

8. FACE MOISTURIZER: If you think this is too thick to apply to your face, think again, better yet give it a try. Perfect for the under-eye area, and a thin layer on the skin before bedtime will ensure a glowing, radiant complexion in the morning.

9. DIAPER RASH TREATMENT: Mom's with babies should know that by applying Vaseline to a warm washcloth, then apply to your baby's bottom will help prevent diaper rash. Same would hold true for someone with a mild case of eczema or dry skin rash--- but only mild cases. More severe problems will require prescription medicine.

10. FITNESS TIP: Before going for a run, apply Vaseline to your feet, arms and thighs to help prevent blisters and chafing. And if skin becomes very dry following exercise, apply a thin layer of Vaseline to affected areas to help moisturize and heal dry skin.

imageAnd oops, so I lied, have to add Vaseline Lip Therapy ROSY LIPS, which I'm totally obsessed with at #11, because no matter where I go this comes along for the ride. And, I now have all my friends addicted to it, some have traveled way out of the neighborhood just to pick up a little tub, because it has been sold out in stores. My recommendation, if you find one, stock up on this favorite pink tint, it's well-worth it!
