Every year we each absorb an estimated 2 kilograms of chemicals through beauty and cosmetic products. Chemicals found in lipsticks, skin lotions and hair dyes have been linked with tumours, cell mutation, allergies, reproductive complications, endocrine disruption and cancer. Isn't it time we all paid more attention to exactly what goes into the eye shadows, body washes and deodorants we love to use? This compelling and timely book tells you the key chemicals you should avoid, reveals just how natural 'organic' beauty products really are, and features a directory highlighting the health issues surrounding a wide range of products, from hair gel to sunscreens.

Although Pilates has recently become extremely popular, there are few books aimed specifically at men. This book teaches you how to get the most from Pilates by allowing you to structure and pace your own workout. As you progress you can choose from basic, intermediate and advanced workouts, and select exercises according to your sport to develop specific strength in different muscle groups. Pilates for Men also gives advice on how to improve your posture and to avoid aches and pains, and includes a lifestyle section to help you feel good, both mentally and spiritually.
