I grew up using Vaseline Jelly for multiple treatments. First, it’s a great healing hand and foot treatment. When I have extremely dry, cracked hands, I coat them in Vaseline Jelly Original and let it soak in a pair of gloves overnight. When I’m sick with a cold, Vaseline helps vanish any flaky, dry skin on my nose. And let’s not forget it also helps protect minor cuts, scrapes and burns. Scroll down for my DIY Vaseline body scrub!
Vaseline Jelly deeply moisturizes to heal dry skin and lock in moisture (it penetrates surface skin to create an intercellular occlusive barrier). I rely on Vaseline Jelly year round, but most of all during dry cold winter seasons (like the severe cold weather we’ve been dealing with now). So it’s no surprise this post is an ode to Vaseline Jelly and all it’s moisturizing goodness.
Recently, Vaseline Jelly sent me the ultimate Healing Kit, featuring a bevy of beauty products and tools I could use with Vaseline along with a list of DIY treatment ideas. I recreated one of those recipes and today, I’m sharing with you an easy healing DIY body scrub featuring the drugstore staple. This healing body scrub recipe is an easy at-home DIY treatment that’s equal parts moisturizing and exfoliating that will slough off dead skin but still leave your skin feeling hydrated.
DIY Vaseline Body Scrub – Instructions:
1. Mix 2 tablespoons of Vaseline Jelly with 1 tablespoon of 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, which moisturizes to heal dry skin.
What about you? How do you like to use your Vaseline Jelly?
I am a big fan of using vaseline to protect my nose and the corners of my lips in the wintertime. I, too, slather it on my heels and palms and put on socks and gloves to restore moisture overnight. Never heard of the body scrub idea but I am a fan! Anything budget-friendly makes me happy!
That’s awesome! Lately I’ve been using Vaseline on my lips before I go to bed so I don’t wake up with cracked lips. Thanks for reading!!
Try it-works GREAT!
Thanks Kara 🙂
Could you substitute brown sugar for the sea salt?
Yes you can. I used regular white sugar (in equal parts) and it worked out great!
