How to take a few things from around the kitchen and turn them into a ginger-infused coconut oil sugar scrub for body and face. Today’s post is not about food that you eat. It is, however, about things you normally find in your kitchen like oils and ginger and sugar and kosher salt.

The following article was written by PETA intern Heather Mangal. Sometimes my moods go up and down like a seesaw but aromatherapy comes through in the clutch. All it takes is the right combination of essential oils to get me emotionally balanced.

Let me tell you, this stuff does the trick. Feel free to experiment with different scents, according to your mood!

Such celebrities included Barbie (also known in Chinese as 大S/徐熙媛 ), who is a singer, actress, TV host, and her recently new title, Beauty Queen, which she gained from her beauty books.

Thanksgiving has come and gone and we had loads of pumpkin. Who would have thought that pumpkins could be beneficial beauty wise? I've actually learn about the beauty secrets of pumpkins after visiting some spas at beautiful, tropical Bali, Indonesia recently. At first I was rather baffled, pumpkin on my face?
Some of the best beauty techniques deal with fighting the signs of age. Growing old gracefully is a beautiful thing – and you don’t need to rely on Botox, collagen, and things like that.

I came across lip-scrub-extraordinaire Sara Happ while browsing a fashion magazine and immediately had to lurk her online.
