Petroleum jelly is a multitasking beauty superstar, doing everything from removing waterproof mascara to taming your eyebrows to adding extra glow to your cheeks. Turns out it's also great for applying makeup over fine lines, says Brian Underwood, beauty director at Dr. Oz The Good Life.
"It's a secret anti-aging product," he says. "Dab it along your nasolabial folds to plump the skin and prevent any of your makeup from settling into any of those lines."
Got bags under your eyes? Grab the hemorrhoid ointment. No, that's not a typo. The cream that's the butt of many jokes — pun intended, we couldn't help ourselves — fights more than one unpleasant side effect of aging, apparently.
"There's a solution right in your medicine cabinet — hemorrhoid cream, which shrinks [under-eye bags] down," Underwood says. "Put a teeny bit on your ring ringer and dab it right under your eyes, then apply your concealer or foundation as usual."
