Top Celebrity-Loved Beauty + Fashion Brands Supporting Breast Cancer Awareness

From plush cashmere sweaters and luxury Italian hair brushes to soothing hyaluronic acid facial mists, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and these coveted brands are giving back. 


 

According to the American Cancer Society, “Breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women, except for skin cancers.” Breast Cancer Awareness Month is underway, so now’s a great time to support your favorite companies as they help fund organizations that have breast cancer at the forefront of their concerns. From skincare to fashion to wellness and hair care, these companies are worthy of your support.

Breast cancer hits home for me being from a family with a strong history. Prevention is key.

Same here. We need to be extra diligent about self exams and annual screening appointments. We are our own best advocates!

So VERY Important to get the "twins" or in my case the big sister and the smaller, lumpier sibling checked regularly. I will support any product that promotes wellness, recovery and new breakthroughs in the breast cancer fight. Early detection is CRUCIAL, and not just for women. Men too can get breast cancer and although they don't talk openly about it, men need to put the macho aside and deal with their "moob" issues, just like us.

Well said! Although men are relatively low risk in terms of breast cancer, I'd like to know how many doctors talk with their male patients about it. Putting this on my list of things to learn more about!

I'm actively supporting any brand that supports breast cancer treatment and awareness. Thanks for sharing these lovely, philanthropic compannies, Tracy.

And, make sure you're doing your yearly mammograms! I highly suggest scheduling ultrasound alongside your mammogram visits as well. Double up!

I ordered the PrettyLittleThingxCoppaFeel shorty pajamas, and they're so soft. Went back to buy the nightie, but it was already sold out. I love supporting brands that give back ... and I'm a "double up" girl myself. I loved learning that Dr. Heather recommends ultrasound in addition to or as an alternative to traditional mammograms. My best advice is to fight for your own health. Insurance companies often deny coverage for MRIs, but high risk patients can get them covered if they fight for them.
