For all my ladies who love statement earrings, this tutorial is for you!

I’m about to share with you my secret for how to wear heavy earrings and avoid damaging your ears.

For this heavy earrings hack, there’s no need to buy any obscure ingredients. All you need is Vaseline! This simple hack will prevent your earrings from feeling like they're tugging on your earholes so much.

Let's get started.

Tools and materials:

  • Petroleum jelly (Vaseline)
  • Heavy earrings
Applying Vaseline

1. Apply Vaseline to the earring posts

With clean hands, apply some Vaseline to the posts of the earrings.

This will allow the heavy earrings to slide right in place. You only need the tiniest amount for this.

    I don’t get it! How does this help with wearing heavy earrings? What is the purpose with the Vaseline ? I’m not getting it.

      It would help the earrings move around more easily rather than just pulling on one area, but I really like using antibiotic ointment. It works like Vaseline but helps your earlobes not get puffy and sore

    I agree with "L"'s above comments. Antibiotic gel or ointment does same thing. A little Vaseline on the earring posts or French wire earrings can allow you to wear inexpensive earrings without irritation. I suggest using earring backs to for more secure fit if using ointment or Vaseline.
