Vaseline: anti aging?

Recommended Posts

If vaseline works great what about a thin layer of Olive Oil? Wouldn't that achieve the same moisturizing and protective purpose while adding positive benefits? Just wondering if anyone has tried this,

The reason the Vaseline works better is because...the way I use it...when you put your moisturizer on FIRST and then put on a VERY thin layer of Vaseline, it works as sort of a 'shield' or 'barrier' to keep that moisturizer on your skin. That way it doesn't evaporate, rub off on your pillowcase or anything else. Like others have posted, it also does the same for your hands and feet. Put your moisturizer or FIRST, then smooth a VERY thin layer of Vaseline and it will keep that moisturizer close to your skin so it can do its job...does any of that makes sense? I don't think olive oil would work the same way because it's more of a moisturizer itself and wouldn't work as a barrier to keep in your moisturizer like the Vaseline does. I hope I said it right. kopfkratz.gif

Vaseline can be used as a cheap moisturiser only by people with really dry skin. Otherwise, you would find that it can block pores causing break outs.

 

If anti aging is what you are after, then vaseline is not it.

I heard about Vasaline being good for skin too. One tip I read was to apply a thin layer of Vasaline on the face and leave it on for the night or for 20 mins as a mask. Anyway, I tried the later. I think I developed white bumps all over my face in the end, so nope, it didn't work for my skin. Works great on my very dry lips though, I've been using them for years and have gone though many miniature bottles of them.

I have known and heard of many people who have used this since a young age. I'm not one who's kept up with it continuously but when I do my face is especially soft and glowy in the mornings. I will agree without doubt that it does wonders for the feet.

Vaseline, huh? I am huge on anti-aging, so I might have to give it a try some time. It makes a good liploss, that's for sure.

Vaseline is actually noncomedogenic, so your skin can breathe, even if you are acne prone

I would have thought that vaseline, which is made of petroleum no? , would be clogging for the pores! maybe though...

I am in my 40's with acne prone skin and have used vasoline on my eye area and any really dry patches since I was a teen. Though my skin is not perfect I still don't have wrinkles around my eyes and I to swear by it. I have recieved other eye creams in various make-up and skin care kits and all them seemed to irritate my skin, but never my vasoline. : )

It is, it's petroleum jelly, but it works great against dryness, so when nothing else has worked, i reach for it. As to be anti aging, our skins are all different from each other, and i believe a well moisturized skin always looks better smile.gif

Hi I am new to this forum, I joined after reading all the posts. And I'm going to try it but i wasn't sure what the routine was. Are you supposed to wash morning and night with dove and the add vaseline each time or do you just use vaseline at night. If it's just at night what do you need to put on in the morning? A lot of questions but I just want to make sure that I get this right. It sounds like an answer to all my skin problems.

eromi, I'm guessing they just use it overnight after washing their face with the dove bar? I might try it on just my eye area smile.gif

 

If anyone has been using it recently, have you noticed any difference?

I use the Dove as my face wash and would not switch for any amount of $$...I will exfoliate every few days but my skin has never been so healthy...I love Vaseline...I am sometimes lazy but I usually put Jahoba oil around my eyes and often ALL over my face and then let is absorb then apply a thin layer of vaseline...it seems to really make my face glowy the next day! It is not dry hardly ever if I keep this routine..and I have less breakouts then when I don't use it..and it makes my super oily skin less oily!! Love it!!

Aww shucks. I tried it and clogged me up pretty bad... I basically used a biore strip all over my face and I've never had anything come out.. well, it came out this time.

 

I'm still using it under my eyes since I'm pretty dry and gross under there. It works great as an undereye moisturizer. I'm going to still use the beauty bar too and see if it'll help me out. So sad it didn't work out.

Just out of curiosity, has anyone found using vaseline has given them the skin that they want? I've been using the dove soap and vaseline and I've noticed an improvement, but I still haven't found ANYTHING that gives me that spot free clear complexion that I'm after.

oh I forgot to mention , seeing as we dont have vaseline here in france I use pure petroleum jelly. It comes in a tube (labeled vaseline lol) and its more like Gel than the vaseline texture so its easy to spread on and doesnt feel as sticky.. I dont know if that makes any difference with the "anti aging" properties but it sure does make using it easier.

 

 

BTW if anyone wants to know why a 23 year old has suddenly become obsessed with slowing down time ...its because I found a white hair smack in the middle of my bangs!!!!!!!

 

Please tell me I'm not the only one going prematurely gray! bowl2.gif

i am 27 and i have couple of white hair at the sides , i dont know i had a friend in collage we were 21 by then and she had one wondeful hair silky ,black and long with one white hair at the back .it definetly takes your attention .

i dont know if its gene but my parents didnot have white hair early , but i know exactly how you feel?

so you are not the only one.

Do use vaseline normally as eye cream alone without anything else ?

because here in egypt eyecream brand is really too expensive. if this worked, it would be a save

is there types of vaseline with different company or something?

Update!

 

I've been using it for a while, I do think my under eye area looks plumper, more hydrated... and I think it has even reduced the tiny lines I have a little bit! I feel like it is doing something whereas the expensive eyecreams I've used don't always feel like they're effective.

 

This is a great cheap solution. At the moment I only use it around my eyes although maybe once every few weeks I use it all over my face for extra hydration.

 

Now to try the dove beauty bar!!

Thanks to payday loan company North Carolina, my dream came true. I think a loan is a good way to fulfill your dreams.
    • As aging, more and more spots will appear on the skin, especially on our face. It’s our nature to pursue beauty that all of us want to make our skin looks clean and spotless, so most of us use a thick foundation to cover the spots.   But if we know where the stains come from, maybe we will not be so anxious. Usually there are two key reasons that cause the spots because the pigmentation of the skin is closely related to the melanocytes in the basal layer of the skin: 1. One is that the melanocytes in the base of the epidermis increase, which will form a nest of melanocytes, such as pigmented nevus; 2. The another is that melanocytes synthesized by melanocytes are increased, such as sun spots, age spots, and chloasma.  What results in melanocytes increasing? Besides it’s genetic, the most important reason is from solarize.   The ingredients that can cause damage to the skin in the sun are well-known ultraviolet rays. Among them, ultraviolet(UVB) can act on the epidermis, which promotes the synthesis of melanin particles in melanocytes, the increase of  melanocytes, and various pigmentation problems.   Therefore, more importantly, the most importantly for us to get rid of the spots on our skin is to do the best sun protection that you can.   What’s more, CARE II believes that there’s a little difference for different skin type, so we’d better to know the skin type first.   There are four basic types of skin: dry, oily, normal and combination skin. Skin type is determined by genetics, though it can be change according to the various internal and external factors.   1. Dry Skin Dry skin feels tight and rough and look dull. The only advantage of dry skin is that it’s not easy to be oily. But mostly you feel the skin is tight and it’s prone to peeling, fine lines, pigmentation, and skin aging, because dry skin lacks the lipids that it needs to retain moisture and build a protective shield against external influences.   2. Oily Skin Oily skin is completely opposite with the dry skin and it has a glossy shine and visible pores. Oily skin is prone to greasy feeling, and it’s prone to problems such as enlarged pores and hemorrhoids because of the heightened sebum production.   3. Neutral Skin or Normal Skin Neutral skin is well balanced, neither too oily nor too dry, which is the best skin condition. Maybe the T-zone is a bit oily, but overall sebum and moisture is balanced and not like oily skin or dry skin.   4. Combination Skin As the name suggests, combination sky consists of a mix of skin types. Skin types vary between the T-zone and the cheeks on combination skin, for example, the T-zone is often oily because of the strong oil secretion, which will result in rough skin, thick pores, acnes, but the cheek skin is relatively dry and delicate compared with the T-zone, and there will be dryness, desquamation and even red blood, stains and wrinkles issues if the skin hasn’t be taken care well.   Now you know what kind of skin type you are, right? Here CARE II wants to clarify the advantages and the disadvantages of the four skin types.   Skin Type Advantages Disadvantages Dry Skin Not oil Fine lines, pigmentation, and skin aging Oily Skin Moisturize Enlarged pores, acnes Normal Skin Well balanced Easy to be influenced by seasons Combination Skin The cheek skin is delicate Need to take care separately, the T-zone and the cheeks. If not take care carefully, many skin problems will be caused.   You can take care of your skin by the skin type you are.   Besides the reasons that CARE II mentioned above, there are also other reasons, like make-up dirt, stay up late, lack of sleep.   Some tips for you to get spotless skin: 1) Sun Protection-Shade, sunglasses, clothing and hats provide the best protection     -Try best to avoid the sunshine in the midday     -Check the UV index by your phone, if it’s 3 or above, please do sun protection     -Use sunscreen, at least SPF 30+     -Avoid sunlamps and tanning parlours 2) Cleanse Your Skin Cleanly-Remove the makeup thoroughly     -Cleanse your skin cleanly by CARE II RENEWAL facial cleansing brush. 3)  Sleep Early and Sleep Well     - It’s not only for your skin health, but also for your body health, extremely important! 4)  Massage your skin    - You can use CARE II RENEWAL facial cleansing massager to massage your skin.   Alright, you’ve already known what skin type you are and known how to take care of your pigmentation skin. That’s cool!  
    • Now astrology is far more advanced than it was but there are still few birth charts which give the explanations of angel 222 number. We usually have to surf other sites to find such important information. Nevertheless, planets and houses are usually mentioned and thanks God, they are easy for understanding

Although it was more a search for the bride ... but I like the result))) I decided to visit a dating site when I realized that I couldn't find the one in real life. It turned out that there are a large number of pretty serious girls. It was pleasantly different from the picture of the world that I usually saw. It is not surprising that I got married quickly)
