7 Do-It-Yourself Skin Care Remedies with Vaseline
Do-it-yourself remedies provide an alternative to fragranced and chemical-filled skin care products. Many can be made with ingredients you already have at home and a strong base ingredient with healing properties like Vaseline Petroleum Jelly. By infusing Vaseline Petroleum Jelly with just a few basic ingredients you can treat a wide variety of skin problems depending on your need.
Vaseline and White Sugar Lip Scrub
Combine one teaspoon of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly with one teaspoon of white sugar for the perfect lip exfoliator. Gently apply the scrub to the lips in small circular motions, wipe away and apply your regular lip balm.
Vaseline and Salt Body Scrub
For silky smooth skin try this quick and easy full body exfoliator. Mix two parts of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly with one part of coarse salt and apply all over the body in circular motions. Finish off with a rich moisturiser like Vaseline’s Cocoa Glow, Dry Skin Repair or Aloe Soothe Lotion.
Vaseline and Milk Cleansing Face Mask
To remove dark spots and even your skin tone, mix 5 parts Vaseline Petroleum Jelly with 5 parts of fresh milk and apply to your face. Allow the mask to sit for 30 minutes before rinsing.
Vaseline and Egg Face Mask
For brighter, softer skin, mix one egg white with a tablespoon of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly and a few drops of lemon juice. Apply the mixture to your face and allow to sit for 20 minutes.
Papaya and Vaseline Face Massage Mix
Blend together papaya slices and a dash of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly to create your mixture. Massage the mixture into your skin for 10 minutes for a natural, healthy glow.
Moisturising Overnight Hand and Foot Treatment
Before bed, apply a generous layer of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly to your hands and feet, then put on some comfortable gloves and socks. The healing powers of Vaseline will work overnight, leaving you with perfectly soft skin by morning.
Note: To protect your skin from irritation, make sure you do a quick spot test by applying your DIY remedy to the inside of your wrist before applying the treatment to your skin. Contact your doctor or dermatologist if you experience any discomfort.
