Beauty tutorials are big on YouTube — a search for "makeup tutorial" and "hair tutorial" yields more than five million videos. In this weekly series, we put a mix of popular and under-the-radar tutorials to the test and show you what's best.
Now that it's officially Dry Skin Season, it's time to load up on the heavy moisturizers and ditch any potentially irritating or drying products. That's where the magic of Vaseline beauty hacks comes in. The benefits and wide range of uses for petroleum jelly have been widely documented, and with good reason; there's pretty much nothing the slick balm can't accomplish. If you're looking to brush up on just a few of the main beauty uses for Vaseline, this super-simple YouTube video does a good job of breaking them all down. Bonus: You don't even need to turn the audio on to glean all of the useful info.
Just to be clear, you can use any old petroleum jelly for these – Vaseline brand works, yes, but so does Glossier's Balm Dotcom or any generic store brand. Or if you're someone who might perhaps prefer to avoid petroleum altogether, we'd recommend swapping in a lanolin-based product, such as Lanolips 101 Ointment or the Frank Body Lip Balm.
