Vicks VapoRub is one of the most common products found in every single home. We often use it to treat cold, cough, headaches etc. But have you ever heard that it has several benefits for your skin, too? I am sure most of you have not. So, read on to know about some excellent uses of this magical product.
A cellulite burner
I am sure many of you have read about this from various internet resources. Yes, it is true that you can burn your extra cellulite using Vicks VapoRub. All you have to do is take some good amount of Vicks and massage it on your skin for a few minutes, and then leave it on overnight. Repeat this process regularly and you will definitely see results.
Removing stretch marks
Vicks VapoRub is an effective remedy to get rid of those pesky stretch marks on your body. Apply Vicks on your stretch marks and wrap the area with a cling wrap. Leave it on overnight and you will see your stretch marks getting invisible from the very first use.
To get soft heels
The ayurvedic composition of Vicks provides enough moisture to treat your cracked and dry heels. Simply slather some Vicks on cracked feet and cover them up with socks before going to bed. Once you get soft and happy feet then make sure you repeat this process once a week.
To remove pimple and acne
I got the idea of writing this post because Vicks VapoRub just dried out a pimple on my cheeks. 😛 Vicks VapoRub contains mint oil, eucalyptus and other extracts which help in vanishing pimple at a very fast rate. Just apply it on your pimple after cleaning your face and your pimple will dry out.
Get rid of wrinkles
Its highly moisturising content will provide instant relief from wrinkles that occur due to stress.
For soft lips
This one is my favourite. Apply some Vicks VapoRub on your dehydrated and chapped lips to get soft and smooth lips.
Vicks works as an excellent mosquito and insect repellent. Apply in on your hands, legs etc. to shoo away the insects.
Treating fungal nail infection
If you are suffering from a fungal infection then you have to trust this blue bottle. Although it takes a little time to treat this kind of infection, it will definitely remove every bit of infection from your nails. All you have to do is regularly apply Vicks VapoRub on the affected nail.
