October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and while many companies have launched speciality products geared to raise awareness and funds for many worthwhile charities.
Here are two fun ways to support the cause.
The Avon pretty in pink umbrella is decked out with plenty of lipstick kisses to drive away the grey of any rain day for only $10.00. One hundred percent of the net profit purchase price ($6.86) goes to the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade.
Redken has a handy travel set of two of their best selling products Quick Dry Finishing Paste and Rough Paste. Redken is donating $20,000 from sales to the Susan G. Koman for the Cure.
Another great thing you can do for yourself is early self detection to prevent Breast Cancer; that means checking your breasts routinely and here is a way to do it from the Cleveland Clinic Website, as well as having a yearly mammogram.
It’s also important to get acquainted with the chemicals that are in your cosmetics.
The Breast Cancer Fund is working to create awareness and has a nice list of nasty items that may be linked to Breast Cancer that are in your everyday beauty products.
Knowledge is power, so take a look at the list to see what is in your everyday products and find ways to choose safe cosmetics.
