Every woman wants to have skin that glows. No matter how old you are, a good complexion will take years off your face.

Commercial hair gel contains an assortment of chemicals you don't want inside your body. These include parabens, which mimic estrogen, and can potentially fuel a hormone-dependent cancer.
