Hello there goddesses! مرحبا الإلهات
I'm so sorry I've not updated in forever, I have recently been on a fabulous holiday to Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. (Hence the Arabic title translation!) Today I'm am going to go through all the weird beauty tips using 'Petroleum Jelly', or as we all call it, Vaseline. Vaseline is one of those weird things that we all buy without knowing what it is actually for, so I'm going to list my favourites tips for using Vaseline (or any other petroleum jelly, of course).
Apply Vaseline to your eyelashes every night before going to bed to gradually make them grow thicker and longer. I absolutely swear by this trick, although it is a more long term thing it is definitely worth giving it a go. P.S Once your mascara is finished, keep the brush, wash it very thoroughly and use it to apple the Vaseline to make sure you cover every lash.
For perfect beach feet this August, coat your feet in Vaseline before you go to bed. Put socks on before getting in bed, or for a more interesting approach, wrap your feet in shower caps and secure with an elastic band around your ankles.*
Overnight Vaseline face mask. Cover your face with a thick layer of Vaseline before going to bed and wake up with super soft, moisturised skin. Make sure you wash your face with your usual cleanser in the morning to avoid having a shiny face from residue oils.
This tip is perfect for people like me who are incapable of painting their nails without painting their entire hand! Put a layer of vaseline all around the nail and then just wipe it off after your nails have dried to remove any mistakes.
Healthy looking hair. Put Vaseline on the ends of your hair overnight and wash it out in the morning for less split ends and healthier looking hair. You can also do this on the lengths of your hair, not just the ends but avoid putting it on the roots as you will upset your natural oil balances and just get really greasy hair!
Make your own plumping lip balm using Vaseline and peppermint oil. The peppermint oil helps make your lips look fuller by stimulating the circulation in your lips, whilst the Vaseline moisturises them and adds shine.
Slather Vaseline all over knees and elbows to get rid of that horrible snake scale dryness that, let's admit it, we all get.
Put Vaseline on your forehead against the edge of your hairline before dying your hair to avoid dying your skin as well.
Mix Vaseline with a lipstick that you don't often use to create your very own cream blush.
Use Vaseline as an eye make-up remover. This is especially useful if you are struggling to find a sensitive eye make-up remover that really gets the job done.
So here are my top 10 Vaseline tips, what are your tricks? Leave me a comment revealing your fabulous Vaseline secrets!
