Family |

Sometimes grandmother knows best—and sometimes not so much.

Grandmas love to dole out words of wisdom—whether you want to hear them or not. Their wealth of knowledge extends to the beauty world, but whether their tips are worth their salt (or Vaseline) is another story. Here, Women's Health readers share the beauty regimens their grandmothers recommended—the good, the bad, and the just plain weird.

"Grandma always relied on Vaseline for pretty much every beauty trick in the book. Makeup remover? Vaseline. Dry skin? Vaseline. Chapped lips? Vaseline. I tried to fight it and use fancy products instead, but in the end I always end up coming to Vaseline. It's a lifesaver." —Kathy H.
