Considered an occlusive moisturizer, Vaseline provides the skin with a protective barrier that locks in moisture. It is a blended mixture of paraffin, waxes and mineral oil that creates what is essentially petroleum jelly. While Vaseline will not reverse or erase your wrinkles, the University of Maryland Medical Center explains that it can help keep your skin hydrated, reducing their visibility.
