Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer affecting the women in Malaysia. Did you know that about one in 19 women in Malaysia risk getting breast cancer? This October, we at Fixie Dust would like to shine some light on Breast Cancer and how it may be closely linked to our daily actions. Many of us often believe or feel that breast cancer only affects women, but less than 1% of all breast cancer cases do develop in men. However, this is something that is very rare as only one in a thousand men will ever be diagnosed with breast cancer.
Being females, we often are excited to explore different skin care and make up products. In some cases, we don’t actually read the ingredients or read up on reviews about the product before purchasing it. STOP doing that. Lots of products out there contain harmful ingredients which will end up doing more harm to you than you’d even realise. When a person uses cosmetics, their skin absorbs the chemicals and these can enter your bloodstream. Certain chemicals can contain ingredients that researchers have linked to serious health concerns such as:
Here are the list of ingredients you should avoid when you buy products especially for your skin:
So ladies, please do your research before buying something, especially if you plan to use it on your face/skin. Your one action could turn your lives the other way around. The best option is to try making your own skincare at home. There are tonnes of tutorials that you could look up online. The other alternative is to look for skincare/makeup brands that only use natural ingredients to make their product. In Malaysia, we have so many new brands that use only natural ingredients. You can checkout brands like Lips Carpenter - not only do they have lip balms made out of natural ingredients, but their ready-made lipsticks and customizable lipsticks are also all naturals. If you love a little more colour to add to your complexion, they also have tinted lip balms. Not only are their products naturally healthy for you, but they also smell super good too!
This October, we aim to protect more women from the underlying causes of all these harmful sicknesses. Share this article with all your friends and family - and stay safe guys!
We came up with the whole name when we said we wanted to help 'fix' other's social media problems. And as two females moving into this venture, Fixie Dust seemed to fit the bill!
