We all grew up with our moms rubbing Vicks VapoRub whenever we have bad colds, or cough. Some of us may be surprised, however, that the popular ointment has more uses than that.
In this video we have shared below, you will learn that Vicks VapoRub can actually be used for removing stretch marks.
Sounds unbelievable, you say? Well, read on and find out for yourself.
According to this YouTube video, stretch marks can be caused by many factors and pregnancy is among the most common reasons. Applying Vicks VapoRub on the affected areas, claims some people who have done it, can be highly effective in getting rid of the said marks on the skin. This is because the combination of menthol, thick oils, and other cooling ingredients for the skin can help reduce the vibrancy of even the worst kinds of stretch marks.
This is why some refer to Vicks as the “magic eraser” for these annoying “tiger stripes” and you could see noticeable changes in just a few days. In fact, some claim that your stretch marks could be totally gone in just 2 weeks time.

Aside from stretch marks, Vicks could also be used for a wide variety of purposes such as for easing muscle pain, getting rid of nail fungus, preventing infection of paper cuts or splinters, protecting yourself against mosquitoes, and many more. Actually, you can even use this as a sleep humidifier.
So the next time you’re dropping by a grocery or a drugstore, you really should consider picking up a bottle of Vicks on your way out. It can be more useful to you – and your loved ones – than you can imagine.
