6 Unbelievable Uses and Benefits of Petroleum Jelly You Never Knew Before

Hydrate Your Lips:

Apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly on your lips day and night to prevent chapped lips or soothe sad ones. It moisturizes and hydrates, thus leaving the lips with a perfect natural shine.

For Clean Fingers and Cuticles While Painting Nails:

It’s a fact that not all of us have mastered the skill of manicure. For that perfect nail paint finish without worrying about getting polish all over your dominant hand – just apply a thin coat of petroleum jelly (using a Q-tip) around your fingernails and cuticles. The jelly will not only moisturize your cuticles but also act as a barrier to keep sneaky polish from attaching itself where it is most definitely not welcome! Just be sure to not get any petroleum jelly on your fingernails, or else it will do the same thing!

DIY Exfoliators Base:

A great base for any DIY exfoliator. Mix petroleum jelly with sugar or salt for an amazing exfoliator for your body, or you can also apply a layer to your lips to gently buff away dead skin cells. Use a soft toothbrush, sweeping in circular motions, for unbelievably smooth lips.


Apply a tiny amount of petroleum jelly with your fingertips to the top of your cheek and brow bones for a fresh, dewy look! Keep in mind – a little goes a long way, so don’t go too crazy.

Smooth those Flyaways and Pesky Split Ends:

A light coating of petroleum jelly can make the split ends and flyaway hairs magically disappear. Just a little – a small amount on your fingers and wipe on those naughty hairs to set it back.

Shiny Legs:

The season of summer is around the corner, time for shorts and dresses to make their debut – this means even your legs too! Slightly rub a layer of petroleum jelly on your bare legs and watch how they transform into glowing legs.
