This is the sixth installment of our monthly classic actress beauty tips that I have read about AND tested.
Doris Day was the quintessential girl next door with a sunny smile, blonde hair and flawless skin.
How did Doris Day keep her skin so smooth and clear looking?
In her autobiography “Doris Day: Her Own Story,” Day said that once a month she would cover her body with Vaseline before she went to bed to soften her skin. She would wear gloves, sock and pajamas that would make sure the Vaseline stayed on her skin and didn’t get all over her bed.
I haven’t specifically used Vaseline, but I have used coco butter on my skin over night which is a similar consistency. I’ve had issues with dry knees, ankles and elbows and the coco butter worked relatively well.
However, over coco butter, I’ve found that baby oil and Nivea work best for softening skin over night.
To review: I haven’t used Vaseline overly much but I’m substituting coco butter for my experiment. It moisturizes well but Nivea and baby oil work much better.
