5 Vaseline Hacks You Need to Know This Winter

Vaseline's beauty secrets

I always have Vaseline stashed in every drawer, purse, and diaper bag I own. Vaseline is a total workhorse—if I’m on the go, it comes in handy at least once a day—whether I’ve got a particulary dry patch of skin or my cuticles are getting gnarly. But there are a few less-known ways I personally use Vaseline that you need to know. These are my best-kept Vaseline beauty secrets I always keep in my back pocket:

Vaseline Beauty Hack #1: Cream Bronzer and Contour

Put a small dime-sized amount of Vaseline into a dish. Scrape some matte brown eye shadow into the Vaseline and mix until blended. Apply and blend on temples, side of the nose, and under cheekbones for a cream contour effect.  

Vaseline Beauty Hack #2: Sea Salt Scrub

Mix desired amount of chunky sea salt into a dollop of Vaseline. Scrub mixture in circular motions over dry areas of skin (e.g., hands, elbows, heels, etc.). Jump in the shower to rinse it off.

Vaseline Beauty Hack #3: Brow Tamer

Apply a small amount of Vaseline to brows. Using a brow brush, brush brows upward to set.  

Vaseline Beauty Hack #4: Custom Lip Color

Similar to cream bronzer, put a dime sized amount of Vaseline in a dish. Using your old blushes and eye shadows, scrape any mix of shades into the dish and mix. Apply to your lips for a custom lip color.  

Vaseline Beauty Hack #5: Deep Moisturizer

In these winter months skin can get really chapped. Apply a bit of Vaseline to your daily body lotion for extra moisture. Apply it to your feet at night and sleep with socks on for silky smooth tootsies in the morning.
