We Indians are famous for finding all sorts of solutions to our problems. When an object is offered to us it’s use isn’t limited to just what the manufacturer thought it would be. We find out all different sorts of uses for a product and today’s post is related to one such miraclous finds. Most of the times we stock up things which we don’t end up using. I for example stock up on Vicks VapoRub all the time and I seldom fall sick. Until recent past I used to throw out the expired ones and stock up the new ones. One fine day I stumbled upon some amazing uses of Vicks VapoRub and since that day I hAve nit suffered frim many ltitle issues. Today I am going to share the same with you.

 Got any stretch marks

I always wished if there was one medicine which can make my pregnancy stretch marks fade away. I didn’t know I had it in my shelf all through this time. When we gain weight, we suffer from the problem of stretch marks. Some ingredients of Vicks VapoRub like petroleum jelly,  cedar leaf oil, camphor, Eucalyptus oil all work on the skin to maintain its elasticity and restore its moisture. Eventually the stretch marks fade out and the new ones can totally be avoided.

Have any sore muscles

Many people suffer from the problem of sore muscles. The only solution to it is to increase the blood circulation in the affected area. The menthol present in Vicks VapoRub not only gives a refreshing cool feeling to the skin, it also increases the blood circulation. The soreness vanishes within the first two or three applications.

Cracked heels

Wimters are here once again and just like me there are countless other women who suffer from the issues of cracking heels. Want to know a quick cure? Just grab some Vicks VapoRub and apply it on your feet before you go to bed at night. Don’t forget to wear some socks. In just a matter of a week you will notice that the cracks start to fill up and the heels feel much softer. You can also exfoliate your heels with the pumice stone to get rid of the dead skin.

Oh, Bruises

There are some people who have very sensitive skin. Their skin gets bruised very easily and they are unaware of the fact that they have a cure for it in the dressing room drawer.  To make the bruise vanish in no time just take a pinch of salt amd a little bit of Vicks VapoRub. Apply on to the Bruise and see it vanish.

Chappy lips

One more problem which all of us face in winters.  The chappy lips. Well, VapoRub is a cure for it too. Before going to bed at night apply vapourub on your lips and see them shine in the morning.

Surprised??? Even I was when I found out the many uses of a product which got thrown out after expiry almost every time. Do let us know if you liked these tips. You can share your experiences with us
