Unusual benefits of vapour rubs

We have been using Vapor Rubs since the age when we loved falling sick after having long soccer sessions in the rains! It has been a household remedy to whenever we have chest congestion, blocked nose or a heavy head. But did you know about the amazing 8 benefits of the vapour rubs?

  1. Helps Reducing Acnes and Pimples: has several acne fighting ingredients such as camphor and eucalyptus oil that will dry out the acne overnight. All you have to do is put a little dab of Vicks directly on the pimple and leave overnight. You could also try these natural remedies for a glowing skin!
  2. Toenail or Fingernail Fungus:  has a fungus-fighting ingredient called thymol, an oil that comes from Thyme. If you think your nail has become infected apply Vicks directly to the nail twice a day. Cover your feet with socks at bedtime, and continue to trim the nails until the infected part is removed effectively.Before and After application of Vick Vapour Rub

  5. Healing Cracked Heels: Cracked heels can be an absolute nightmare to heal, especially if you are constantly on your feet.

In the morning get up early and wash feet with warm water. Repeat until heels are restored
