October 1 marks the beginning of Breast Cancer Awareness month. While there’s never a bad time to donate and give yourself a self-exam, Pink October is a necessary reminder that the fight to end breast cancer continues. In celebration of Pink October, we’ve rounded up the beauty products that contribute to the causes supporting breast cancer so you can shop, gift a loved one, and give back all at once. Nothing better than knowing your hard-earned $$$ is making a difference!
While you’re at it, remember to conduct a monthly self-check and seek medical advice if you find any irregularities or lumps, even if they’re not painful. According to Cancer Research Malaysia, 1 in 20 women are at risk of developing breast cancer. Early detection can save lives, so get checking — stat!
If there’s one beauty name that’s synonymous with Breast Cancer Awareness, it’s Éstee Lauder. Éstee Lauder Companies (it owns a number of our fave brands such as Origins and Clinique) co-created the Pink Ribbon and launched its Breast Cancer Campaign in 1992. Every year, brands under the company will release a Pink October exclusive that contribute to research efforts. Exhibit A: the bestselling Éstee Lauder Advanced Night Repair in a hot pink bottle! This well-loved serum is easily the brand’s most iconic product, and for good reason. It does wonders to keep skin looking radiant and youthful.
Proceeds from the sale will benefit National Cancer Society Malaysia, Cancer Research Malaysia, Breast Cancer Welfare Association Malaysia and the College of Radiology.
