Peptides are a common ingredient in a number of skin care products, and have been shown to promote skin health, particularly helping to firm the skin.
Vaseline by itself has no direct effect on shrinking pores or treating wrinkles, but moisture-locking is a necessary precaution to slow the signs of aging in the skin.

- Do not use to care for sunburned skin
Vaseline is not safe to use as an immediate remedy after sunburn or sun damage. Because the product can be inactivated by heat and worsen your symptoms.
