After bathtime, we apply a layer of Vaseline all over to make sure the moisture doesn’t escape her skin.
Hydration and moisture are especially important with her having eczema. Winter weather is no walk in the park for those with sensitive skin, so you have to keep the tried and true in rotation to keep the rashes away.
I recently discovered a new use for Vaseline thanks to the internet and Twitter. I follow a few licensed estheticians who discuss the best skincare products, both high-end and drugstore.
One of them recently said applying a thin layer of Vaseline to your skin once you’ve finished your nighttime routine is a great way to keep your skin soft and supple.
Think back to those days of your mom slathering Vaseline on your face as a kid- then apply that to your skincare routine.
Vaseline works as a humectant that locks in moisture on your face the same way it does the rest of your body. According to this esthetician, Vaseline on your face will not cause breakouts, you just have to use it in moderation.
Vaseline has expanded its product over the years to include various lotions and lip products, which I’m also a fan of.
I also cannot stand to have dry lips so their lip products are perfect to keep in my purse or car. I can moisturize my lips and get a nice, natural glow. Needless to say, Vaseline is a holy grail product for my household. From body to beauty, they’ve got all our bases covered.
