Vicks Vaporub isn't Just for Colds!

I'm am SO (I had to use caps here) excited about my recent discovery with Vicks Vaporub!  Remember as a kid when you had a cold, your mom would put a goop of this stuff underneath your nose to help clear your sinus/head from a cold?  I am so happy to say that I've discovered a couple other uses for this product!

#1- Vicks helps with acne.  I know, I know, I was blown away when I read this on the internet a few weeks ago.  I was skeptical when I heard about this, but it honestly makes so much sense if you read what the ingredients are.  It contains eucalyptus, camphor and menthol.  Make sure you use a q tip when applying any of the ointment so you can keep it hygienic and no bacteria can get into the product from your hands.  Rub a little bit of the ointment on a nasty pimple after cleansing at night before bed and it will seriously go down in size by the morning.  Another plus- it feel soothing and takes away the pain/itchiness from acne!

#2- It helps heal dry/chapped lips and it's a natural lip plumper!  Put away the plumping gloss, ladies!  Once again, take a q tip and apply it on your lips at night (don't get any in your mouth) and your lips will feel moisturized and will appear fuller after just a few minutes.  I honestly don't use any other chap-stick at night before bed anymore-  I've been using this for a few weeks and it's done wonders to my lips!

Bloggies, I hope you get the same results from Vicks Vaporub that I did these past few weeks.  I am so glad I discovered these other uses.  You can buy this product from any drugstore/superstore for around $11 for a 6 oz jar or a generic version for a few dollars cheaper.  Good luck!
