Vaseline was initially introduced as a barrier to keep water, air and bacteria away from a cut. However, this amazing beauty staple is a must in every household, for many other reasons:

  1.  Vaseline prevents windburn (chafing of skin due to harsh and/cold winds)
  2.  Vaseline helps to eliminate lice. If applied in a thick layer to the scalp, it will destroy all the lice by smothering them. However, this may be difficult to get out of hair, and will require numerous washes.
  3.  Vaseline helps soothe burns.
  4.  Consistent application of Vaseline after a shower will help get rid of dry patches on skin.
  5.  Vaseline helps shine leather bags. Can also be used to shine leather shoes, though isn’t advisable, since shoes will attract more dust if they have a coating of Vaseline on.
  6.  Many swear by Vaseline as an aid to help eyelashes and eyebrows grow thicker and longer, when used every night, directly on them. This is a very slow process, though.
  7. Vaseline can be used to make homemade lip gloss or lip balm. Various recipes can be found on the Internet for this.
  8.  You know that whitish powder that forms on the battery terminals of your car? Apply a little bit of Vaseline on them after dusting off the powder already formed. If the powder is stuck, then use a bit of warm water and a soft cloth, get all that powder off, and only then apply the Vaseline. This helps retard corrosion.
  9.  Dab little on to your wrists and pulse points. Then spray your perfume. The scent will last much longer.
  10.  Vaseline helps soften calluses and dry, tough skin on feet, if applied nightly.
  11.  It can be rubbed on teeth when lipstick is worn, to prevent those unsightly lipstick marks on teeth. However, a very tiny amount must be used, and NOT a huge blob. Beauty pageant contestants use this trick as well!
  12.  Sometimes, a ring can get stuck on a finger. The ring can be slipped off much easier if Vaseline is used to lubricate the finger first.
  13.  Brittle nails benefit from a regular massage with a mixture of Vaseline and glycerin (or even plain Vaseline)
