A million dollar question that has puzzled women across decades is, “how do I look younger?” If you take good care of the skin and read articles on IMBB, you might tighten your skin without Botox, surgery, or expensive creams, sounds good right? You just need to follow a good beauty ritual. Coconut oil, for example, is a staple in today’s beauty routine for anti-ageing. Vaseline is another age old product that is also a common household product. If you want to try something new, in an inexpensive way, Vaseline might help you. Let’s find the answer to this question, “Is Vaseline good for wrinkles” or not.
What is Petroleum Jelly Made of?
Petroleum jelly is made from a mixture of mineral oils and waxes, the result is a semisolid jelly-like substance. The petroleum jelly was discovered by Robert Augustus Chesebrough in 1859. Chesebrough noticed that oil workers who applied this semi-solid and gooey jelly to their wounds and burns got them healed really quick. He packaged this jelly as Vaseline and it became a major hit worldwide and its popularity has not waned over decades.
Can Vaseline Prevent Wrinkles?
Vaseline works as a great nighttime moisturizer, but according to beauty experts, it doesn’t prevent wrinkles. When you apply a thin coat of Vaseline over a freshly cleansed face, it helps to lock water and moisture in the skin and retains hydration. Petroleum jelly is a strong moisturiser and moisturised skin is less likely to look older and the wrinkles would be less visible that way, but petroleum jelly alone can’t actually prevent wrinkles.
Benefits of using Vaseline on face:
Vaseline could treat very dry skin. Vaseline helps to lock in natural moisture and oils that your skin needs, giving you healthy looking, and well-hydrated skin. It’s actually surprising, but Vaseline is non-comedogenic and wouldn’t clog pores or cause acne; however, if you have existing acne and breakouts, it would not help with the situation. Also, oily and extremely oil skin would not like the gooey and greasy consistency of Vaseline on their skin.
Vaseline is a good product to rejuvenate dull, tired and dry skin. It creates a sealing barrier on the skin trapping in moisture and protecting your skin’s natural recovery process.
Here are other ways in which you can use Vaseline:
- Moisturising Eye cream- The former “Friends” star, Jennifer Aniston, has a 30-minute night beauty ritual and she ends it by applying Vaseline jelly under her eyes! No wonder that women is still a ageless beauty!! This information was revealed by a magazine.
- Prevent skin peeling- When the skin is super dry, it starts to peel, Vaseline can soothe the irritation and help skin heal.
- Skin highlighter- just dab of amount of Vaseline on your cheekbones and brow bones can get a glowing dewy makeup look.
- Eye Makeup remover- Apply some Vaseline on cotton pads and swipe off your eye makeup within seconds. Make sure you cleanse the face with a cleanser to avoid and any eye irritation.
Hope you make good use of your Vaseline tub! It wouldn’t prevent wrinkles per se, it would just help seal in moisture in your skin. Thanks for reading!
