Skincare. What is skincare without a little assistance?
For years I have suffered from dry skin, especially on my legs. When I was a kid, I use to suffer from eczema, a skin condition that can often result in a burning itch that often appears when the skin is sweaty.
From what I’ve experienced, the more you scratch, the more it spreads. Also, the rash normally appears on the arms or the arm joints. My eczema appears on my legs and when it gets itchy, it’s almost impossible to stop scratching.
Anyway, we’ll talk about how to control eczema in the other post. Today’s post is about the Vaseline product range and the products I’ve been using.
Known better as petroleum jelly, BlueSeal assists in keeping your skin moist. It can be used for healing cuts. It can even be used on the sensitive skin of babies. While there are basically hundreds of uses for it, you should always have a tub of it in your bathroom cupboard, in case you need it for any reason.
As a pet owner, one of my dogs is elderly and suffers from a dry nose. The vet mentioned using Vaseline or Paw Paw ointment to add moisture to her nose. However, the other dog loves to lick it off the older one’s nose. It’s not toxic to animals so it’s perfectly safe to use on them.
Vaseline Intensive Care Health Hands, Stronger Nails
I have never had great looking nails. My mother and grandmother introduced me to Vaseline hand cream, which can also be worked into the nails. I’ve used other creams, but this one works the best as it assists the health and growth of the nails. I’m known to pick at my nails (no, not bite!). Biting is disgusting! Anyway, using this cream helps the nails to become strong and tough. Also, it assists makes the nails grow faster.
When you go to buy hand cream, be sure to buy the PINK cream tube. Not the yellow one. I bough the yellow one once, but I did it on purpose because the supermarket, I was at, didn’t have the pink one.
Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturiser
The final Vaseline product I use is spray moisturiser. If you look at the feature image at the top of the article, I have featured a yellow can of spray-on moisturisrer. I normally use the green can of spray because it has Aloe Vera. There’s also a white can, which I cannot remember what it does.
The spray is convenient and doesn’t cause any mess. It’s perfect for when you’re going away and need to spray-on moisturiser at the last second.
If you don’t like the spray can, there’s always the old fashioned bottle. Word of warning, don’t apply the cream from the bottle too thickly, because it becomes greasy.
The spray applies the cream evenly and all you have to do is wipe the cream across your skin.
As you can probably already tell, I love these products. However, I do have a confession to make. I forget to use the moisturiser because it seems cold on my skin. However, I am glad I have these products and I will now, use these products everyday like I am supposed to.
