Every generation has their own best kept beauty secret and my grandmother was no stranger to that. She was known for doing her own thing and like they say... the apple doesn't fall very far from the tree!
When I was in my teens I remember having one of those long coversations with her about life that I now look back on fondly and she finally broke down and told me her best kept beauty secret... VASELINE!!!
Now I know many of you are thinking, what? But it's true! My grandmother had the smoothest skin around, she never wore makeup (only a little blush and some nude lipstick to church), and lived to be 93 years old! I asked what was so wonderful about Vaseline and she said... "Honey, it is good to put on everything!"
She shared that every night before going to bed, she would take a shower, brush her teeth, comb her hair, and before tucking into bed she would put a thick layer of Vaseline all over her face and neck. She said it held in moisture throughout the night leaving her skin silky smooth! Not only that, but you could also do the same for your hands and feet as well- why not just go ahead and lather down your entire body, and she did!
So next time you head to the drugstore or your bathroom don't be shy in picking up a big bottle of 100% petroleum jelly Vaseline for the best skincare around!
Another year has come and gone and Suds Me Up Buttercup is two years old; I am such a proud mama, winks!

2019 was a great success. Check out these milestones that far surpassed any goal I set.
