11 Beauty Products That Raise Money For Breast Cancer Research

Beauty products helping breast cancer awareness

All these products help raise money for breast cancer research.

Saying that cancer sucks is the understatement of the century. We have all lost loved ones and friends to this disease. I am always searching for ways to honor the memory of those we lost to cancer, and their battle inspires me to raise awareness every single time I can. Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, I will be wearing more pink than usual (to my daughter’s delight), and I will be showing extra love to those companies that are funding research to allow more women (and men) to survive this disease.

Breast cancer is the fifth cause of death among women in the U.S., and although the American Cancer Society says in its latest report that ninety-five percent of new cases and 97 percent of breast cancer deaths occurred in women 40 years of age and older, I know too many women diagnosed in their thirties. Some have survived, while others are sorely missed by their children, parents, friends and grandchildren.

Do you want to be a part of Breast Cancer Awareness month? Aside from taking care of yourself, here’s something really easy you can do.  Many companies are offering ways to give back while purchasing products you love. Here are 11 beauty products you can buy and help raise money for breast cancer research.

Take care of yourself: early detection is key

Since we are talking about breast cancer, here are 8 simple things you can do to take care of your health:

  1. Examine your breasts regularly, and report any changes to your physician.
  2. See your doctor regularly for breast exams in your 20s and 30s.
  3. Get an annual mammogram if you are 40 years and older or earlier if you are high risk. Are you worried about the cost? The National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) offers free or low-cost mammograms. Find out if you qualify.
  4. Make friends with vegetables and fruits. Their fiber, antioxidants and other nutrients can help.
  5. Maintain a healthy weight. Extra weight means extra risk.
  6. Limit your alcohol intake, and toast to a healthier life.
  7. Do not smoke, and quit if you do.
  8. Work out, often. To reduce your risk of breast cancer, the American Cancer Society recommends 45 to 60 minutes of intentional physical activity 5 or more days a week.
