Beauty Hack #1 The Many Uses Of Vaseline*

Ever wondered how many uses there are for Vaseline? Well, you have come to the right place because I am going to share with you my list of uses that some in so handy.

Protect skin from hair colourants
Simply apply it around the hairline to prevent any skin staining, just wipe it off after and you'll be ready to go!
Use as an all-over body moisturiser
Apply onto any dry skin areas, perfect for rough elbows, knees and even hands!
Prevent nail varnish marks
Apply around the nail bed before painting your nails, this acts as a barrier so no varnish will get on your skin, win! (a personal fave)
Get long lashes
Many people swear by this trick! Apply every night before bed and over time you will have longer, stronger and thicker lashes.
Make your own lip colour
Another personal favourite, simply choose a coloured pigment (old eyeshadows or lipsticks) and mix it with a small amount of vaseline on your hand to create your own custom lip shade.
Prevent razor burn
Apply a little to your legs after shaving, it will both sooth and smooth them!
Make your perfume last longer
Apply a small amount on pulse points before spraying your favourite scent, it really does make it last longer.
Make a DIY lip scrub
Simply add in some sugar granules and scrub away, works just like a commercial lip scrub.
Smooth hair
use it to tame frizz and seal split ends and even to keep unruly brows in place.
Help stubborn studs glide in
If you don't wear earrings often, those holes can become troublesome so rub a small amount onto your ear lobes and the earring to help it slide in painlessly.
Acts as a gentle eye make-up remover
Makeup remover can be expensive and tough on your eyes. Vaseline is an inexpensive option that easily and gently removes eyeliner, mascara, shadow, and even any eyelash glue that your falsies leave behind.
