If you put a thin layer of petroleum jelly on a healing wound such as an acne lesion which is scabbing over it will speed up the healing process like crazy! Your scab will fall off much quicker and you are less likely to have hyperpigmentation/ red marks after it has fallen off. It is also great to put on a drained acne lesiom before a scab has allowed to form as the scab often slows down healing process ans the jelly creates a protective film against the atmosphere allowing your skin to heal and close over.
For quickest healing results i recommend applying at night as well as during the day and then reapplying if it rubs off or absorbs (basically as you would with a regular wound)
Not sure what went wrong for me. Thought vaseline might work because of the good reviews here, but it didn't. I applied it every night for a week, then wash it off in the morning. Initially, I thought it was working by making my pimples come to head.. but after a few days I realised that I was just breaking out quite badly. Finally stopped it and bought something that I felt might calm my face down- aloe vera gel. Just 2 days after using the gel, I feel that it's slowly healing the damaged that vaseline caused.
I have moderate acne even though to me it seems severe sometimes because it seems it never goes all the way away. I'm on oral pills from my derm and have a prescribed topical cream which seems to only work sometimes. Using vaseline helps tremendously, I used it for about a month and hardly had any acne, then I went off of it and after a month I have it bad again. It won't cure acne by it's self I would also recommend some sort of cream or Stridex type treatment as well as tea tree oil (plus drinking green tea!) but it does wonders sometimes as quickly as overnight. Also for me a large portion of what looks like acne is dried acne that's dead but still looks bad and this helps that clear right up. I would recommend using Vaseline brand as opposed to off brands because those brands don't necessarily keep to the purification as closely. ALSO IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO MAKE SURE YOU WASH YOUR FACE BEFORE APPLYING!!! I did it with a dirty face overnight and it broke me out very bad (it was also off brand so that could have been part of it) But the bottom line is it works and it won't clog your pores but it theyre clogged with dirt when you apply you will break out.
So I suffered a lot of pimples and bumps along my forehead and some were starting to get scabby and bloody and you could just notice them so easily I hated It so I went to the pharmacy and brought a pimple reducing scrub but it made matters worse it made my skin feel really dry and flakey and my nose and forehead started flaking so I just stopped using any products until I heard a lot about Vaseline my sister told me about this and so I did abit of testing myself. And it did wonders in one night or in one day my scabs were gone there was no more redness and there were just a few bumps and it leaves your skin feeling sooo smooth. So just test it out your self to see if this works for you I really hope you try it. Directions If you are. Smear a thin layer of Vaseline over where your pimples or acne are leave it on there for the night I recomend you tye your hair back for the night so nothing sticks. And when you wake up in the morning get a wet cold cloth not a hot cloth a COLD cloth and just gently remove and wash away the remaining Vaseline. Once you've don't that your pimples should have gone down :) I use Vaseline everynight
vaseline never developes acne or black spots. it is really good for moistrusing even if your skin is oily and it helps your skin to repair itself. so it is also good for acne and scars. cheap and healty.
the only disadvantage is that it makes your skin shiny. however you can remove if it seems too much.
i have acne i am 15 years old i began to get acne at the age of 13 and on my high school route i started to break out alot ... i mean big red pimples on my cheeks and forehead .. seems like this is really working .. i wash my face every night .. and add vaseline at night and wake up with less acne and pimples .. i hope you try it :) i did and it works amazing :) remember acne or no acne your still beautiful <3 smile bye bye
I started to break out so badly all over my forehead about 5 months ago and it would not go away. I had huge red bumps everywhere and new ones were forming every day. I tried literally everything- you name it, I tried it. I even went to the dermatologist and they prescribed me oral antibiotics and a topical cream but even these did not get rid of my acne. I completely lost hope until I read online that Vaseline gets rid of acne. So I washed my face with a mild cleanser and put on Vaseline as a moisturizer before bed, and I swear to god I woke up with much clearer skin. Not only does it make my skin smoother, but it gets rid of redness and fades my acne scars so quickly. I only started using Vaseline 1 week ago and my skin is 100 times clearer. I am finally comfortable enough again to go out without wearing any makeup to cover my acne and scars, which is something I could not do a week ago from today. I also haven't had any pimples form since I started using Vaseline. If you're like me and you think you've tried everything, use Vaseline as your night time moisturizer. It was the best decision I ever made.
For me personally I used this a lot when my skin is dry or have acne. I put this on my face over night and wake up with soft glowy skin and my pimple shrinks, redness goes down and dark scars starts to disappear. It works wonder! I love it. It may be sticky but that doesn't bother me.
I haven't used this exact Vaseline i used the Aleo Vera one i find it calms the redness down and speeds up the healing.Also i now drink the Aleo Vera drink and its helped my skin so much i don't have clear skin but the amount is reducing. I find only washing your face , using scrubs and masks have helped a lot.Also don't be afraid to go to the doctor and ask as they can give you creams and washes that will clean out your pours.Also people say its a myth about chocolate causing spots , it isn't.However its not just chocolate if your diet consist of lots of salts and sugars and you don't eat fruit that will be a main cause.Now when i want to snack i pick up some fruit.Another thing i do it soak my face in hot water , however make sure you use a non perfumed moisturizer , something like Aqueous Cream BP you can get this proscribed or buy it in a pharmacy.Another thing is if a spot isn't ready to pop don't mess with it , you'll regret it after , there will be a large redness and cut which may be infected this can get very big and hard to cover its not worth it. Try not to pick !Please reply if you have any suggestions and things i could try please :)
My skin became irritated from using so many products to try and clear up a breakout I was having, making it dry and flaky and breaking me out in my problem areas. I decided to try vaseline and was surprised at how well it worked. I put it on my face at night and woke up to my face being very soft and no longer dry as well as not as inflamed and the size of the pimples was drastically reduced.
Also, I want to point out I have VERY sensitive skin and this hasn't seemed to clog my pores or irritate my face at all.
