About 1 in 8 U.S. women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime, according to BreastCancer.org. It is predicted that at least 2,550 cases of invasive breast cancer will be reported for 2018, with almost 41,000 women losing their lives to breast cancer this year alone. Looking at these numbers is scary, and it is very important to learn what you can do to perform a self-breast exam and find out how to detect breast cancer early on. It is our duty as women to bring awareness to breast cancer and help our fellow sisters. Beauty brands release limited edition products for breast cancer awareness annually, and we are here for it! Below, you’ll find my top beauty picks for October’s breast cancer awareness month. Have your own favorite? List it in the comment section below!
