Holding it in place with a fork, I began sawing the thick veggie burger into bite-sized pieces. Did I look ridiculous? Probably. But that was better than the pain I’d get if I opened my mouth wide – which was like slicing into my own cracked lip corners. The condition that gives you cracked lip […]

The man ahead of me was buying, among other things: Granola bars Breakfast cereal Sports drinks Orange juice Honey Flavored yogurt (Do you eat any of these foods?) His skin was flaky, dull, oily, and wrinkly. (I’m sorry […]
I’m going to show you how to make something which can soothe, refresh, and hydrate your skin… it’s called Rose Hydrosol Face Mist. Hydrosol is a just fancy way of saying steam-distilled floral water, and it’s easier to make than you’d think. The great news is, you don’t need any special equipment to make hydrosol […]
