Gotta take a moment to get serious. Breast cancer is something that has recently affected my family & I want to do my part to help spread the word. Did you know, there are more than 200,000 cases of breast cancer per year? Not all cases are women, men can be affected by this disease as well!
Every year during the month of October, we band together to raise funds for research and awareness to this disease. It’s so important to support your fellow women, and there are so many fun ways to get involved. There are many events that you can find locally and partake in such as races or walks, so grab a friend and get out there! 2nd KIND is helping the cause by donating a portion of the proceeds from every sale for the month of October to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
My family does not have a history of breast cancer & were under the misconception this was a disease we would most likely not face because of the lack of history. Boy we were WRONG! Recent studies from the National Cancer Institute have suggested that antiperspirants containing aluminum and parabens (preservatives) have been linked to breast cancer. These ingredients could mimic estrogen and promote the growth of breast cancer cells. There is some controversy surrounding these theories yes, but it is better to be safe than sorry in my opinion. We have no idea what kind of long term effects the chemicals that are put into our cosmetics may cause. There are lots of cleaner and natural options for our skin that will be kinder to it in the end. We recommend that before you buy a product, check for its ingredients and see if they will be beneficial to you, and consider the natural brands that are available as an alternative.
Support women this month and raise awareness- and be aware of yourself! Fasten your pink ribbon, join the fight! Let us know what you are doing to bring awareness to breast cancer. You can shop 2nd KIND natural skincare line at www.2ndkind.com
