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!

    As a kid, I was and am still curious about the great big world we live in, and I thought nothing of animal abuse. But for some or no completely good reasons, I was getting sicker and weaker. Then one day I heard about PETA while I was on the internet. I got a little curious, and I went veg after finding out meat was one of the reasons I was sicker. Right now, I'm still trying to give up meat for my health. But I'm getting there!
