Breast Cancer Awareness: Pink Beauty Products and Beyond
Here's how our friends via IM, Facebook and Twitter say they're supporting BCA this year (in addition to buying pink beauty products) -- what are you doing?
See how people are supporting breast cancer awareness this year.
And for those of you who have been directly affected by breast cancer (or know someone who has), here are some helpful tips and beauty advice from salon owner and breast cancer survivor, Ouidad, on how to look and feel good while you're fighting breast cancer:
Tip 1: Skin will have a yellow tint from chemo, so use a bronzer with a pink tint to balance your skin color.
Tip 2: Hair tends to lose pigmentation, often growing in gray and curly. Wait at least six months post-chemo to have a color treatment done to prevent damage of new growth.
Tip 3: Visually prepare for hair loss by cutting hair shorter to minimize the drastic effect of losing hair. (See 13 ways to style short hair.)
Tip 4: With new hair growth, do deep treatments every two weeks to feed and strengthen hair. Frequent deep conditioning is necessary to replenish nutrients, allowing each strand to regain its internal weight and body.
So, even if you haven't been as proactive as the ladies on this list, we're pretty sure that you'll be inspired to help the cause after you see how people are giving back this year.
