You’ve likely seen or heard the term slugging. The skincare hack suggests you layer Vaseline over your skin to lock in moisture. However, Allawh says Vaseline may not be the best option for all skin types: “If you experience more acne-prone or oily skin, applying Vaseline directly to the skin may clog your pores and worsen acne.”
She notes applying Vaseline to the lips or underneath the eyes as a moisturizer should not clog your skin pores. “However, if you apply Vaseline to the skin above or below the lips or the nose, you may trigger skin acne breakouts,” she says.
