Vegan baked goods often have a bad rap—turn out one “off” batch and no one will want to touch your “crumbly and dry” dairy-free desserts again.

Beauty news flash: “oil free” is on its way out. What’s been long feared as a pore clogger and pimple trigger is now being slathered on, soaked up and raved about for surprisingly opposite effects. Oil hasn’t always been considered the bad guy.
