5 ingenious ways to use Vaseline in your beauty routine

Vaseline is a wonderfully versatile product and it's more valuable than you might think.

In a pinch, it can replace so many beauty products, plus it can create a truly beautiful look when you use it on your lips, eyes, and even your cheekbones.

Here are five more ways to use Vaseline in your beauty routine that you might not have thought about.

1. Highlighting

Don’t worry about those expensive “highlighters” or “illuminators”. Dab a minimal amount of Vaseline on to cheekbones, cupids bow and in the brow bone for a subtle glow.

2. Tame messy eyebrows

Slick a tiny bit of Vaseline over your eyebrows to keep them neat and tidy all day.

3. Painting nails

It’s so hard to paint your nails without getting at least a little bit of spillage. Dab some Vaseline around the cuticles to swiftly wipe up a nail polish spillage after a DIY manicure. 

4. Transform old cosmetics

You can turn old eyeshadows and blushes into brand new products by missing them with Vaseline. Dated, powdery products can become tinted lip balms or cream eyeshadows.

5. Lip/body scrub

Mix Vaseline with sugar to create a DIY scrub that’s cheap, effective and free from nasty chemicals.
