Let the record reflect that these petroleum jelly body suits are part of an art piece by South Korean artist Jung-ki Beak, and I respect art, of course.
“Every winter I need to apply Vaseline on my left-hand to prevent dryness, otherwise the skin becomes cracked because it is very thin and weak due to a burn that I got in my childhood.

I thought that armor was suitable for representing the meaning of Vaseline as a function of protection,” the artist said of his creations.
“Well, you won’t be needing any protection if you wear those things,” my vagina replied. [Metro UK]

It doesn’t absorb into your skin, just sits on the surface and soothes/traps moisture in.” Will you be buying a giant tub of Vaseline this winter? [Glamour] Keep reading »
