3. Brings noticeable results on your face
Apply a thin layer of Vicks VapoRub to the problem areas (acne, pimples, etc). Leave it overnight, and clean your face in the morning. Be persistent, and you will see positive changes very soon.
2. Relieves muscle and back pain
Thanks to its natural ingredients, Vicks VapoRub helps relax stressed muscles. If you’re suffering from “tennis elbow,” try massaging some Vicks on the affected area until the pain is gone.
1. Helps get rid of belly fat
Mix one tablespoon of crushed tablet camphor, one tablespoon of alcohol, one tablespoon of baking soda, and half a jar of Vicks VapoRub until you get a paste. Before doing your physical exercises, apply this paste to your abdomen or to the area that you plan to work on, and wrap yourself with plastic wrap. When you finish your workout, rinse with plenty of water.
Having the same effect as those expensive slimming creams, such homemade applications, performed 2-3 times a week, can make a real difference.
General recommendations before using Vicks VapoRub
- Just like any other product that is used on the skin, Vicks VapoRub must be tested on your skin before you use it. To see if you have an allergic reaction, put some Vicks on the back of your hand and watch for a while. If you notice burning, redness, or any other symptoms, don’t use it at all.
- The product shouldn’t be used on children under 2 as it can adversely affect the respiratory tract.
- If you have doubts, always consult your doctor before using.
