Having spent the last year with 2 family members going through cancer treatment with varying degrees of success, this years Breast Cancer Awareness month is off even more significance to me and in the month of October I will be shouting (even more) from the roof tops that all women AND men believe it or not need to be breast aware.
According to the statistics in October, 4000 people will discover they have breast cancer and by the time the year is over 12,000 people in the UK would have passed away from breast cancer, directly or indirectly.. This breaks my heart! BUT with increased awareness, increased funding, more medical research and better detection rates, surviving breast cancer is not impossible.
I am always pleased to see the beauty industry take up a good cause and every year lots of brands release a pink version of at least one of their products in support of breast cancer awareness and donate a percentage of sales to the charity to help in important research and treatment.
There’ll be lots of pink products out this month so please indulge yourself. It all in aid of a good cause. One of the best I’ve seen and one that is right up my street is the limited edition pink Glam Glow Mud Mask called CURE SEXY. It is a complete SUPER mask and I’ve often heard described as a facial in jar. If you don’t believe me read this from one of my favourite bloggers A Model Recommends. Plus its suitable for all skin types, but as I always say if in doubt, patch test first.
The key ingredients in the mask are volcanic minerals which provide surface exfoliation to rid the skin of dead skin cells, French clay which draws out impurities and tightens pores to reduce oil and Teaoxi which brightens, hydrates and balances. I can see why it the facial in a jar – it does the whole whack in a fraction of the time and leaves skin glowing for up to 3 days!
What I even like more is the fact that 25% of the profits made from the sale of this special Glam Glow will be donated to the Pink Ribbon Foundation to help in the fight against breast cancer.
