7 Offbeat Vaseline Beauty Hacks

Our every-day-use petroleum jelly is synonymous with brand ‘Vaseline’. No matter how recent and modern beauty products we have known and used; this classic, iconic beauty formula remains our most desired keep.

This multi-tasking miracle balm smoothens our skin, gives us fancy feet, helps us get rid of flakiness and dryness, and heals wounds. But, did you know it can also benefit us in a number of other unconventional ways?

Here are 7 of my favourite Vaseline beauty hacks:
