Pro-tip for this hack: use this only on the legs, and remember, this will become an all-time favorite. After a thorough shave, especially those overdue ones, the hair follicles become irritated. We are frequently left with the dreaded shaving bumps: the highway of sandpaper-like lumps where our skin is voicing its clear disapproval. Lightly apply a layer of VapoRub over the legs.
Do not apply pressure. The menthol will spring into action to suppress any swelling of the pores. The petroleum jelly will help keep the legs smooth and moistened. Do not apply VapoRub to the face or under the arms after a shave.
Do you want your legs’ skin to have a long-lasting, silky-smooth effect? This is worth it.
This ailment is usually the butt of all jokes. Now that we got our one free hemorrhoid joke out of the way, let’s move on and see how Vick can help you! VapoRub is, without doubt, a very unorthodox ointment for hemorrhoids, but sufferers have stated that a light application of the jelly provides instant relief. It has to be a very thin layer, or else there will be another issue to worry about.
Vicks asserts that VapoRub must only be used externally. Therefore, it is not advisable to apply the VapoRub to the hemorrhoid directly. Instead, try a light application of VapoRub around the edges where itchiness, irritation, and discomfort occur. To us, there are discomforts and health issues that the people's pharmacy may interfere with; however, there are some cases where they should not. And this is one of them.
Some things shouldn't be messed with. This is worthless.
Prevent Stretch Marks
Preventing stretch marks from forming altogether? Yes, please! The petroleum jelly and the turpentine oil in VapoRub help the skin stay hydrated, elastic, and supple if used on a regular basis. With skin in this condition, it can better withstand the stresses placed on it by rapid expansion, for example, during pregnancy or rapid weight gain.
This hack needs no unique process, such as wrapping oneself up like a mummy in cling wrap, but instead just a single application daily, preferably after bathing. The texture and oils are far better than any other lotion and will result in no time.
What younger-looking skin in no time? This is worth it.
Pet Hot Spots
Are you noticing your pooches rubbing their hindquarters against trees or furniture a bit much? No, they have not been watching Miley Cyrus' music videos. They possibly have what veterinarians call a hot spot. A hot spot occurs when a lesion becomes inflamed and causes the unsuspecting animal significant irritation.
VapoRub can act as a soothing balm against the flare-up. Ensure to trim the hair around the hot spot so the VapoRub is not absorbed by the hair itself. And with all of these warnings, we can sum it up by saying the VapoRub is extremely toxic, so extra caution must be taken.
It's too toxic to take the chance. This is worthless.
Freshen the Air
Have you missed trash collection day? Is there a new puppy in the house that has not yet learned the difference between your Persian rug and the grass outside? Here’s a VapoRub hack for you that we guarantee will make our house smell good again.
Use VapoRub as a quick-fix air freshener. Some hacks suggest a dab of VapoRub just under the nose, but this is not recommended as it can irritate the upper lip. A better method is to place a spoonful of VapoRub into a microwave-proof bowl, heat it until it becomes liquid, and place it in the desired location.
