Patroleum Jelly

Pretty much all dry skin can be cleared out with a good treatment of petroleum jelly.

Petroleum jelly is basically a hardish, yellow, and slimy dry liquid that is useful for all kinds of things.

The main reason petroleum jelly is used is for clearing out that annoying and bad looking dry skin.

Women are especially concerned about this issue, but it is not a very big deal and most of the time can be cleared with a little lotion or even better petroleum jelly.

Petroleum jelly stays on for almost all the day and feels weird sometimes very moist, but that's the reason it works so fast.

Petroleum jelly has a very fast effect and immediately gets rid of that dry skin.

Petroleum jelly is also used on the face and lips to clear out dry lips or dry skin under the lips or near the head.

Whatever reason you are using it for petroleum jelly is a great thing to try out and is really cheap.


Vaseline is the number one petroleum jelly product and has sold many other products worldwide. Vaseline is a good quality product manufacturer of petroleum jelly and has many good benefits. Unlike some other companies Vaseline is a well known company, and sells a better product to clear out unwanted dry skin. Vaseline can also be used on lips if you have very chappy lips, and don't want to go anywhere looking like that. If your worrying about it being to expensive don't worry it's fairly cheap and can be found at most local stores.

Applying Petroleum Jelly To Dry Skin

Applying Petroleum jelly is really easy, and much more effective than using regular lotion. Lotion usually requires a lot of time to work and during this time you have to keep putting it on once its all gone. Petroleum jelly stays on for a very long time so you don't have to worry to much about washing your hands and nothing will be left. Anyways to use the full effect of petroleum jelly apply as much jelly as you think you need to the are that you want to. After that take your hands and slowly wipe it around that area until it is all firmly put, the best time to do this would be either before sleeping or in the morning. Of course after a shower would be a good idea to since if you take warm showers you will get some dry skin.

You Can Apply Vaseline To The Entire Face

you can apply patroleum jelly to the entire face to keep all of your face nice and moist. It is a good idea to do this during the night time since it gives better results.

Look Better?

After doing all of this you should feel better as well as look better than you did before using Petroleum jelly. In addition you can compare your results and see how much better or more fresh you look now since that dry skin is gone.

Once the dry skin is gone you can stop using Vaseline if you want, but in doing so you most likely will get dry skin in the same area again. A good idea would be to keep applying Vaseline for a little longer even when the dry skin is gone, this way the area will be completely clean.
