Face washes, toners, moisturizers … all these beauty essentials can be quite expensive, and they are often filled with nasty chemicals and preservatives—blech!

Take control of your beauty regimen for megacheap, and enjoy the wholesome benefits of ingredients that you probably already have lying around your kitchen.

This basil toner recipe is perfect for fighting acne and improving skin circulation. Woot!

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
