Benefits or Uses of Petroleum Jelly for Skin and Beauty


Put a coat on your eyelashes before you go to bed. Lots of people swear by this – and say it will make your lashes grow longer and thicker over time.

Remove eye makeup

Coat your lids, then gently swab with a tissue.

Preserve your fragrance

Dab on pulse points, like your wrists and the sides of your neck, before spritzing on perfume. Your scent will last the entire day.

Protect skin from hair dye

Smooth a layer at your hairline before using home color and you'll avoid hard-to-remove dark stains.

Face Cream

Put a spoonful of Petroleum Jelly into a bowl and lightly warm in the microwave for 10 second intervals to make a face cream that you can use every night before bed – and be sure to take care when handling hot materials.

Daily Fresh Look

Use Petroleum Jelly on your cheekbones and above your brows for a fresh and dewy look. You can also mix it with a bit of lipstick and apply it to your cheeks for a natural blush.

Soft Feet

Apply Petroleum Jelly on your feet before putting on socks and wear overnight to help achieve smooth feet and toes.

Soften Spilt ends

Rub a bit of Petroleum Jelly into the ends of your hair to hide the appearance of split ends.

Keeps fingers and cuticles spotless

You can now achieve immaculately painted nails without worrying about getting paint all over your hand by applying petroleum jelly in and around your finger nails and on your cuticles. Your cuticles will not only remain moisturized with the jelly, it will also be nail-polish free.

Give your legs a natural sheen

A layer of petroleum jelly can help make your legs shine during summer. Not only does it provide a natural sheen, it also keeps your legs moisturized for a long period of time.

Lip balm

Petroleum jelly can be used to prevent chapped lips. Just melt a small amount of jelly and place it in an empty container or chapstick and let it solidify. Apply it twice daily for best results.


For this, add black or brown eye shadow with petroleum jelly and then gently apply it on the eyes with a spare mascara brush.
