Beauty tip of the Day: Vaseline to treat Winter Dryness

February 2, 2010

Vaselinegoes a long way during these harsh winter months! My dermatologist recommended applying a thin layer of Vaseline after washing my face and at night before bed. She swears that its the best hydrator out there and doesn’t cause breakouts — not to mention, it’s pretty cheap too! So far its working for me!”

Vaselineis available at drugstores for $5.99.

    This probably works great if you have normal skin. But if you have really sensitive acne prone skin like me, the petroleum in vaseline can really clog your pores. There is an option at health food stores to buy Unpetroleum jelly. Same concept as vaseline but without the petroleum.

    I love vaseline! Fatt and I use it year-round but especially in the winter for those ugly, ashy, dry patches that pop on the cheeks, around the eyes, on knuckles…

    eh im really skeptical about putting it all over my face… petroleum jelly is not a moisturizer per say, but it is a hydrophobic grease that just keeps the moisture in your skin from evaporating. It also doesn’t absorb into the skin well so I dont know how that greasy feeling would be when waking up.

    I do like putting it on my feet before sleeping with socks on… same idea, locking in the moisture plus heat helps soften cracky calouses

    i use extra virgin olive oil every night to prevent dryness (mostly around my eyes and forehead)… but more importantly, it prevents wrinkles and sustains smooth glowy skin… vitamin E cream is also a great alternative.

    vaseline is great but you all should try Vanicream. the stuff is a moisture miracle in a jar. you can get it at walgreens. plus it’s a lovely quick absorbing cream that wont leave you all greasy like vaseline does!
