Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Many of us know already that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and for those of you living in a shell in the past, you do now πŸ™‚

Motives Cosmetics is not just a “makeup” line, they are a Makeup line with a Mission to support Women’s rights and Awareness, especially Breast Cancer Awareness. With October being just around the corner, I thought it would be appropriate to talk a little about the Motives’ social responsibility program in regards to Breast Cancer Awareness.

Motives partners with Breast Cancer Awareness Organizations is a great advocate for early detection. The earlier it is detected, the better your chances are of surviving. In this Video, breast cancer survivor Lisa Winkler, was able to be diagnosed at Stage One of Breast Cancer, eliminating her need for Chemotherapy, all because she was proactive in doing a self exam on her self and seeking medical help. You can watch the Inspiring video here:

Breast cancer is not something to be taken lightly, usually it is a family history thing, but in Lisa’s case it was not. Which is the most shocking. With all the advanced medicine and early detection devices and methods we have today, its easier than ever to be diagnosed earlier as well as be a Survivor .

To Honor Breast Cancer Awareness month, Motives Cosmetics is Donating the profits of two of their most popular products: Motives Mineral Lipstick in Brilliant and Motives Collagen Core Lipstick in Inspired.

Motives Collagen Lipstick in inspired
Motives Collagen Lipstick in inspired
Motives Mineral Lipstick in Brilliant
Motives Mineral Lipstick in Brilliant

 

 

 

 

 

Both of these colors are just Gorgeous, would you agree? Its all for a good cause Starting October 1st, the proceeds of these two beautiful Lipsticks benefit Breast Cancer Awareness!! (I’ll remind you don’t worry)

Look beautiful and feel great about helping others at the same time! πŸ™‚

Do you know anyone with Breast cancer ?

Study finds that 80% of Men’s Heart Attacks are preventable

small

It may seem like a shocker (or not), but changing your lifestyle can truthfully prevent yourself from having an heart attack by 80%, if you are male. (The study was just on males, can be true for women too). Men are the more likely to have a heart attack in the first place.

The 11 year Sweedish Study, found that Men who added regular exercise and ate aΒ  healthy diet were eighty percent less likely to have a heart attack than the men who did not make a any lifestyle changes. There were over 20,000 surveyed in this survey! The men in this survey were aged 45-79. In addition, men who cut their alcohol intake and tobacco habits had even less of a chance of a heart attack! The study claimed that even those men who neglected their health for years were able to reduce risk by adding in healthier lifestyle choices!

It only makes sense! When you exercise your body is able to digest what you eat normally, therefore allowing for your organs to be able to properly work. When a person has a heart attack, it is caused by too much build up in your heart, making it hard for that person to breathe. When you eat a diet full of junk, sweets and fats, it puts a lot of pressure on your organs, including your heart. Over time plaque build up forms and when there is not enough oxygen flow to your lungs and heart, this causes a heart attack.

This is why your Doctor and/or Nutritionist keep telling you to eat healthier and start an exercise routine!

The study states that 80% of heart attacks involving men are actually preventable. The team, who hails from the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, wrote how each measure lowered the risk of heart disease in men, according to Headlines & Global News.
