Since 1985, October has served as Breast Cancer Awareness (BCA) Month — a period devoted to educating the public on the disease that, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is the second most common form of cancer in women, regardless of race or ethnicity. Men can also be diagnosed with breast cancer (albeit at a much lower rate), and The AEDITION is devoting much of its coverage this month to BCA, from expert guides to mastectomies and reconstructive breast surgery to powerful patient perspectives and roundups of products that give back.
We’re thinking pink! In case you needed an extra incentive to stock up on your favorite products or treat yourself to something new, brands are giving back all October long in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
From pretty-in-pink lipstick duos and serious skincare to cozy blankets and blooming bouquets, there are plenty of ways to shop for the cause this month. The Estée Lauder Companies, for one, is back with its annual Breast Cancer Campaign benefitting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, which means brands like La Mer, Bobbi Brown, Rodin, Bumble and bumble, and more have released limited-edition versions of some of their bestselling products. Beautyblender is here with a special bubblegum pink sponge in support of the organization, while other brands are partnering with equally worthy charities like Look Good Feel Better, Pink Agenda, Partners in Health, B4BC, and the American Cancer Society.
