5 ways to use petroleum jelly for skin care

The skin is the body’s largest organ, so it’s important to take good care of it. However, doing so doesn’t necessarily mean breaking the bank. In fact, a common, inexpensive product found in most people’s medicine cabinets, petroleum jelly, can have multiple skin care uses for the entire family.

  1. Relieve dry skin, including your lips and eyelids
  2. Help injured skin heal
  3. Prevent chafing
  4. Treat diaper rash
  5. Rehydrate nails

While petroleum jelly has many benefits, it shouldn’t be used for everything. Avoid putting petroleum jelly on your face if you are acne-prone, as this may cause breakouts in some people. If you have questions about your skin or how to take care of it, see a board-certified dermatologist.
