The summer heat has been really unforgiving these days. It’s too hot to stay outside, it’s too sticky and sweaty to stay indoors.
The kids have already been stripped down to their sandos and briefs to feel cooler. While this worked for the elder one, my youngest who has eczema complains of being itchy all the time. The worst part of it is when I checked the areas where he complains of itch, the skin was so rough and so dry. I’ve already tried all his previous lotions before and nothing seemed to work. I was getting frustrated already when these came through the doorstep.
Vaseline, of course! Why didn’t I think of that? Oops, I meant Petroleum Jelly. I just always associate the former with the latter. 😛 Anyway, this wonder jelly is touted to heal burns, rashes, chapped skin, cuts, bruises, and more.
Maybe, that’s just what I need for my son’s skin! After all, if it can keep keep a leaf vibrant even under the heat of the sun, it must be able to help with dry and chapped skin, right?
By the way, to illustrate the healing power of Vaseline, they put up a live billboard along C5 last April 8-10. Here’s a video of it:
I wanted to try it out for myself. I got 2 leaves, brushed one with Vaseline and left the other alone. I put it under the heat of the sun for 3 hours and this was the result.
Okay, I’m sold. I find the petroleum jelly too greasy for the summer though. I needed a lighter, non greasy counterpart. Well, fortunately for me, Vaseline has answered my need. They’ve put micro droplets of this magic jelly into their new line of lotions! Yey! With this, the magic works deep from within the epidermis to bring back lost moisture and heal dry skin.
I immediately tried it on my son’s skin. Generously too. I used the yellow one because it said Heal Dry Skin, which is just what DS needed.
I am so happy and actually amazed to report that the skin now feels softer and smoother. No kidding! He still complains of being itchy though but at least the skin feels so much smoother. For a while there, I was actually worried that it would be dry and rough forever! Whew!
