The summer heat has gone beyond unbearable these past days. Unbearable enough that I was under the weather the week after my son was. Tandem it with one of summer’s most common diseases, sore eyes, and I just about welcomed myself into misery land. But as I am feeling better today, I’m more than ever convinced that we should be more vigilant in making sure our bodies are well hydrated, especially this summer.
That said, did you know that this wild summer heat has the makings of dehydrating your skin? I know this all too well since my cracked lips are such give away. As our skin is exposed to factors that can damage and dry it out. From hot showers, air-conditioned rooms, to the heat and pollution during one’s daily commute, skin is stripped off of its natural hydration and moisture. Check out the difference between leaves with and and without Vaseline. That’s pretty much the case for my lip when I fail to dab Vaseline Petroleum Jelly on it – one touch and it’s likely to crack.
Vaseline 100% Pure Petroleum Jelly
This tub of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly did not merely protect my lips but it has practically healed my cracked lips. No more achy and bruised lips from all the cracks. We all know how lips tend to crack when we are sick, so this has been my go-to-tub since I got the flu.
A bit of history on the wonder Petroleum Jelly
It was in 1859, when New York-based chemist Robert A. Chesebrough created a wonder jelly, a do-it-all product that can heal burns, rashes, chapped skin, cuts, bruises, and more. A few years later, this wonder jelly was labeled Petroleum Jelly, which is now an important staple in all households because of its healing properties and outstanding skin benefits.
Vaseline Instant Fair Lotion and Vaseline Deep Restore Lotion
Meanwhile, Vaseline has recently come up with body lotions infused by the same celebrated and wonder ingredient to make it easy for us to replenish our skin’s moisture. The New Vaseline body lotions are designed to heal dry skin from within.
Vaseline Live Billboard Along C5
To showcase and prove the healing power of Vaseline, Vaseline took the ultimate test when it mounted a live billboard along C5 last April 8-10. Real leaves were used, and half of them were covered with Vaseline jelly, while the other half had none. After three days, the difference was visible. The side that was coated with Vaseline jelly remained vibrant and moisturized, while the other half dried out completely. If Vaseline can keep a leaf vibrant and moisturized, imagine what it could do to dry skin.
The new Vaseline Lotions now has micro-droplets of Vaseline Jelly that works deep from within the epidermis to bring back lost moisture and heal dry skin.
To know the condition of your skin, take the Dry Skin Test on http://www.vaseline.ph/skin-index-test.
I took the Dry Skin Test and I scored 27.5 for Mild Dryness.
I have never been religious at lotion application but seeing those dry leaves still look good after 3 days, I can only imagine the good it’ll do to my dry skin. So discipline starts now. 🙂
Hygiene Tip: Use a stick of cotton bud to get product off a Vaseline Petroleum Jelly tub. And NO double dipping! 🙂
Use Vaseline Petroleum Jelly and heal dry skin on targeted areas like elbows, heels and knees. I use my tub to moisturize my heels. This is how I have been keeping my heels crack-free. 🙂
Vaseline Deep Restore Lotion retails for P69.30 for the 100ml, P126 for the 200ml and P225 for the 400ml.
