New You Beauty Tip: Don’t underestimate the power of petroleum jelly.

 You may think petroleum jelly only has a few basic uses. Commonly, it is used to treat chapped lips, cracked heels and minor scratches; however, there is a plethora of ways to use something as simple as petroleum jelly. Check out some of the cheapest beauty fixes in the industry:


  1. If you desire long lashes, apply a small amount of petroleum jelly directly on the hair line at night; being careful to avoid getting any in your eyes and watch them grow.
  2. Transform boring eye shadows and blushes into cream colors by mixing with petroleum jelly.
  3. For supple, kiss-ready lips; substitute lip balm for petroleum jelly. You can also create your own lip-gloss by mixing your favorite lipstick with petroleum jelly.
  4. Mix petroleum jelly with water to create an instant hair serum; comb through the ends of dry, frizzy hair.
  5. Lipstick lover? Keep your teeth white by applying petroleum jelly to your front teeth preventing color transfer.
  6. Use petroleum jelly as a simple, gentle eye makeup remover.
  7. Before spraying perfume, apply petroleum jelly to your skin in the spray zones for long lasting fragrance.
  8. To rid your eyelashes of mascara clumps: Apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly to an old mascara brush and comb through your lashes after applying fresh mascara.
