It's been a skin-protecting staple since 1872, when the first patent for petroleum jelly was introduced, but Vaseline has more beauty and fashion uses than you might think. Break out that old jar and get ready to get gorgeous.
I had no idea there were so many uses for Vaseline! Do you use it often? I especially like these tips for nails:
Keep a little tub of the stuff by the sink and work into cuticles twice a day. It’s all you’ll need to prevent hangnails.
Before applying polish, trace petroleum jelly over cuticles and the skin around your nails using an eyeliner brush or pointed cotton swab. If you then accidentally paint a little outside the lines you can just wipe off the mistakes after lacquer dries.
