Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Charitable beauty products to stockpile now

October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a time dedicated to making the signs, symptoms and treatments for the disease more known and a push for everyone to help boost funds to conduct research and help care for those suffering.

As American actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus pointed out when revealing her own battle with the illness last week, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. And it’s still the number one cancer killer for women in the UK.

While raising money yourself is one way to do your bit, you can support the fundraising efforts simply by stocking your bathroom cabinet. Multiple high-end skincare, make-up and fragrance brands have teamed up with breast cancer charities to ensure your beauty buys go the extra mile.

Shop products from Elemis, ghd, Clinique, Merci Handy, Jo Malone and Birchbox to do your bit.
