The Important Reason ghd Just Launched a Baby-Pink Collection
To celebrate 16 years of supporting breast cancer charities globally, ghd have partnered with 11 incredible women who were diagnosed with breast cancer before the age of 35 to share their stories and encourage women globally to make time to self-check their boobs every month.
Alongside that, ghd will be launching their limited-edition Take Control Now collection with $20 from each purchase going towards The National Breast Cancer Foundation. The range includes the award-winning ghd platinum+ styler, ghd gold stylers and NEW helios hairdryer, available in the delicate shade of dust pink, and embossed with the positive message, Take Control Now.
If you've never checked your boobs before, here's how to do it:
Step One: Touch Your Boobs
Start by standing in front of the mirror, undressed, with your hand behind your head. Then, using the flats of your fingers to check under arms and work down your boob. Moving onto the nipple, move the flats of your fingers in circular motions around your boobs, before continuing to feel up and along your collarbone for any unusual lumps.
Step Two: Look at Your Boobs
Put your hands on your hips and pop your shoulders and elbows forward. Then, look for any changes in skin texture (puckering or dimpling on skin), change in nipple appearance or direction and unusual discharge or rashes.
Step Three: Check Your Boobs
Most lumps and bumps are often nothing to worry about. But, if you do notice a change, make an appointment with your GP and if you do need to talk to somebody, call a friend, your therapist or a family member for support.
