VASELINE MAY NOT BE AS HARMLESS AS YOU THINK

VASELINE MAY NOT BE AS HARMLESS AS YOU THINK Vaseline can create the illusion of moisturized, hydrated skin, all the while clogging and suffocating your pores! It’s water-repellent and not water-soluble, meaning it seals your skin so that moisture does not leave your skin. In reality, you are drying out your pores by keeping out air and moisture. The thick texture makes it difficult to cleanse from the skin. Slathering Vaseline on your unwashed face will cause breakouts because it essentially seals in the dirt. Opt instead for more natural alternatives with products containing beeswax, coconut oil, olive oil, shea butter and cocoa butter.
