Statistics show that about one in eight women will develop breast cancer over the course of her lifetime, which makes it the most dangerous cancer condition among women today. Let that sink in. As a daughter of a recovering breast cancer survivor (love you mom!) I don't take this risk lightly. Thankfully, we can give back in big and small ways, thanks to beauty. This month, brands nationwide are investing in breast cancer charities globally by donating product proceeds. You should never feel bad about buying a beauty product — but this month, you'll feel extra good about supporting a few of the below products for a charitable cause.
