1 Dewy bare face: Apply a coat of petroleum jelly to your face and blend in your liquid foundation with it.

2 Smell beautiful all day: Apply petroleum jelly to the inside of your wrists, behind your ears and on your décolletage, and spray some perfume on it. This will keep the fragrance intact.

3Flawless eyelashes: Smother petroleum jelly over your lashes. To avoid a mess, use only a tiny bit.

4 Salon-perfect nails: Apply petroleum jelly on the sides of your nails just before painting your nails. It will get you a smooth, perfect finish without bleeding nail colours.

5 Sleek ponytail: Flyaways stopping you from getting the sleek look? Rub petroleum jelly from your scalp to the end of your ponytail, using it sparingly.

6Lip and body scrub: For lip scrub, mix some sugar with a teaspoon of petroleum jelly. It will help you get rid of flaky and cracked lips. Just replace the sugar with sea salt when using it as a body scrub.

7 Tame your brows: Dab a pinch of petroleum jelly on your finger tip and smother it over your brows to shape them. Finish by combing with a toothbrush.
