As October is the month of National Breast Cancer Awareness, it reminds all the women to take care of their breasts by monthly self-checks and annual breast check by a gynecologist so as to avoid unnecessary risks. In the US and the UK it is recommended that every woman at the age 40 or earlier should plan an annual mammogram. The advancement in medical procedures has made it possible for women with breast cancer, various reconstruction methods like silicon gel implants and sophisticated flaps and grafts etc to get back their good
old breasts. Now breast reconstruction is offered simultaneously at the time of mastectomy or at a later date.

This October you can support breast cancer charities by purchasing products (designed to bring awareness about breast cancer) to support breast cancer survivors. Some of the products are Clinique Colour Surge Butter Shine™ Lipstick ($14, www.Clinique.com), Lorac Perfectly
Pink Blush ($25) and Stila BCA It Gloss Trio ($34) both available at www.sephora.com.
