I don’t know about you all but I assume most people are in the same situation as myself and the winter is wreaking havoc on our skin, right? My legs are dry, my hands are dry and cracking, my cuticles look like they haven’t seen moisture in months and my elbows are crazy dry. That’s where Vaseline Jelly comes in! Vaseline Jelly deeply moisturizes to heal dry skin. After-all it is the ORIGINAL dry skin healer since it’s discover in 1870! Products that have stuck around that long are definitely tried and true! Vaseline Jelly penetrates dry skin to create an intercellular occlusive barrier on the surface of the skin. I was lucky enough to receive this healing kit and I was excited to get started trying out all the different Vaseline Jelly Healing Recipes!
I figured I would start with my legs since that is where I needed the most moisture & I went right to work making this easy DIY Body Scrub!
Something about this time of year really just does a number on my legs making them super dry and this scrub sounded like a great idea to go ahead and start to take care of this. I felt completely comfortable making my DIY Body Scrub with Vaseline Jelly because it’s 100% pure! Highly refined, triple purified to remove impurities, safe, and non-somedogenic. Vaseline Jelly will NOT clog your pores or cause breakouts. It’s non-irritating and hypo-allergenic! The perfect accompaniment to a nice body scrub & super easy to make.
Mix Vaseline Jelly with sea salt to create a scrub
Apply to legs and rub in a circular motion to buff skin gently and help get rid of dry skin
Rinse scrub off with warm water
- Apply a thin layer of Vaseline Jelly to heal and moisturize dry skin
After using this scrub my legs felt super moisturized and I could already feel the Vaseline Jelly beginning to heal my dry skin by locking in the moisture! I also went ahead and used the scrub on my elbows to work on the dry and cracking skin that I have going on there. If you’re feeling adventurous and wanting to do more then one treatment (I sure was!) and have yourself a bit of a spa night let me suggest also trying out the Healing Shaving Treatment! You know how your legs sometimes feel super dry after shaving? The Vaseline Jelly takes care of it!
Healing Shaving Treatment
Upon leaving the shower, hydrate and soothe skin by applying Vaseline Jelly to legs while skin is still slightly damp
Apply warm washcloth to open pores and allow moisturization to seep deeper
- Gently rub in to lock in moisture and make skin soft and smooth
You all know, well if you have been around here for awhile… I have an obsession with my nails and I usually paint them daily. All that acetone seems to destroy my cuticles and all the dishes (Seriously in need of a dishwasher) just cause my hands to get crazy dry and it’s worse during the winter months so I was super excited to try out the Healing Hand & Nail Treatment! The easy to use flip cap on the Vaseline Jelly container really helps when you’re using it for your hands and I loved slipping on those white gloves to really lock that moisture in!
Healing Hand and Nail Treatment
Before bed, apply a layer of Vaseline Jelly to the top and bottom of your hands
Cover hands with a pair of cotton gloves and let Vaseline Jelly soak in overnight
Remove gloves in the morning and dry off the remaining Vaseline Jelly
Apply a dab to of Vaseline Jelly to fingernails to keep them resilient while also keeping cuticles soft
Massage into fingers for five seconds each
Trim nails as desired and paint with your favorite pop of color
- Put Vaseline Jelly on rim of nail polish to prevent sticking
Vaseline Jelly locks in moisture! Forms a strong seal deep within the skin (stratum corneum) that traps moisture. Helps fill in (or substitute) skin’s own intercellular lipids (known to be lost in dry skin conditions). I am super impressed! Vaseline is available for between $1.69 & $4.29 at food, drug and mass retail outlets!
