Vaseline Life Hacks That Makes Life Easier

Life can be complicated, so why don’t you make it easier by using a simple ingredient in your health and beauty regimen? Vaseline was invented nearly 150 years ago and became extremely popular shortly after its launch and for good reason. It can be used for a variety of things, particularly when it comes to the human body.

Have a cut on your hand? A problem with dry feet? Difficulty removing makeup? Reach for some petroleum jelly. There are so many handy uses for the product, it’s a wonder that more people don’t carry a jar with them wherever they go.

The company has its own line of Vaseline lip products, but you can get creative and make your own lip therapy. Simply take some Vaseline and add a little essential oil or Vitamin E for extra protection. Then use food coloring, eye shadow, or even lipstick to add some color. Voila! Instant lip balm.
