And here I thought it was good genes, her personal trainer, and a gluten-free diet. But according to the Daily Mail, Jennifer Aniston looks like she’s 43 going on 23 because she schmears petroleum jelly under here eyes every night to keep crow’s feet at bay. I’m starting to rethink my eye cream choices. Then again, Vaseline does little more than create a barrier, sealing moisture in but not actually feeding the skin. (Note: Petrolatum is also considered potentially cancer-causing by most natural-beauty authorities, and while no studies have ever shown a direct link, petrolatum is on a list of dangerous substances in the EU).
Aniston also gives herself a daily facial steam and massage (love), follows with Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion (don’t love) and uses Vitamin E on shins and elbows. But it’s the $3 vat of Vaseline that has me curious. Have I been missing out? Do you have a thing for Vaseline, too?
