There comes a point every winter where not even all the cute snow boots, cool coats, and chic layers aren’t even enough to get over that cold weather slump. I for one probably now lack upper body strength for all the times I’ve had to dig my car out of the snow. Blech. But thankfully in these trying times, a girl can cling to her beauty routine.
Now this might be a NYC thing, but who here remembers back in the day when mothers would send their children out on those blistery cold days with Vaseline on their little faces to protect them from the wind chill? I remember chuckling at some of my classmates, but boy were their moms onto something! Winter + Vaseline Jelly = the same feeling of euphoria you get when there’s only one pair of shoes left in your size AND they’re on sale. There’s so many ways to include Vaseline in your winter beauty regimen—and you’ll want to because boy does skin get DRY during the winter. Luckily Vaseline Jelly helps to heal dry skin by locking in much needed moisture. One of my favorite ways to protect my skin against the wild frontier that is NYC when the weather gets below 34°F is as soon as I’m out the shower and my skin is a little damp, I’ll add a little Vaseline Jelly to my skin. I feel all pampered and soft plus I get a little glow. But there’s tons more ways to incorporate this budget beauty buy into your routine—in fact Vaseline sent over a Healing Kit for me to share with you all complete with some healing recipes so that you, too can ward off the effects of the Polar Vortex.
1. Mix Vaseline Jelly with sea salt to create a scrub
2. Apply to legs and rub in a circular motion to buff skin gently and help get rid of dry skin
3. Rinse scrub off with warm water
4. Apply a thin layer of Vaseline Jelly to heal and moisturize dry skin
This is amazing especially on rough areas like the heels of the feet as well as elbows and knees. And we all know how these areas can take a licking this time of year (Also, an age-old beauty trick that still works extremely well—after your shower at night, slather Vaseline Jelly on your feet and then slip on socks—when you wake up in the morning your feet will be ridiculously softer AND you can even prolong a pedicure).
I also love using a teeny bit of Vaseline Jelly mixed with a bright lipstick to make a gloss or lip stain—depending on the color you use, you can also use it as a moisturizing blush :)
