As an alternative person that I am, I needed to expose to you, unexpected uses of Vicks VapoRub. As we all know the main ingredients of Vicks are menthol, eucalyptus, and camphor, but its benefits don’t stop just from relieving you from cold and cough.
9) Cracked heels
It works like magic! Apply Vicks with gentle circular moves on your heels before going to bed. If you can, wear socks to avoid mess, but they are not necessary. Go to sleep and in the morning you will not believe in your own eyes. You will see noticeable results from the first application!
8) Reduces stretch marks
Massage the problematic areas with Vicks 1-2 times per day and wait for app. 2 weeks to start seeing some results.
7) Works as an insect repellent
We hate mosquitoes and other insects and by rubbing a little bit on our body or leaving an open jar next to you, you will avoid them. Definitely, this belongs to the unexpected uses of Vicks, right?
6) It’s all about-face
If you have acne or pimples, apply a thin layer of Vicks before going to bed on the problematic areas. Leave it overnight, and wash it with lukewarm water in the morning. You will see results soon.
5) Relieves headaches
Rub a thin layer on your forehead and it relieves pain in no time (menthol helps lower blood pressure).
4) Relieves muscle and back pain
Massage a thin layer of Vicks on the problematic areas, until the pain it’s gone. Repeat it regularly if needed.
3) Toenail fungus belongs to the unexpected uses of Vicks??
Apply every night some Vicks on your toenails and wear socks (they are not necessary but it will help you better).
2) Relieves earache
Put a small cotton ball with Vicks in your ear, and leave it for a few minutes to few hours. It relieves you only from the pain, not the infection; so anyway, you need to see your doctor as soon as possible.
1) Flat belly overnight
Apply a thick layer of VapoRub on your belly and wrap yourself with plastic wrap. Leave it overnight and wash with lukewarm water in the morning. You will lose some inches from the first use!
