Hello dear Nitarts' make-up studio guests~! (\(^___^)/)
Hope you're doing great!
In this post i want to share about some facts regarding breast cancer which i think are pretty important to be read by people, especially women and my make-up creation inspired by the infamous pink ribbon, the international symbol of breast cancer awareness.
People are excited for some reasons on October, especially because of the Halloween, i made a look for last year's Halloween and i'll be making one too this year, but October is also a breast cancer awareness month in the U.S so i made a make-up creation for it and hope this will raise your awareness, yes you, dear readers.
What is Breast Cancer?
Cancer is a group of diseases that cause cells in the body to change and grow out of control. Most types of cancer cells eventually form a lump or mass called a tumor, and are named after the part of the body where the tumor originates, so breast cancer is a kind of cancer that develops from breast cells. Breast cancer begins in the breast tissue that is made up of glands for milk production, called lobules, and the ducts that connect the lobules to the nipple.
How to detect Breast Cancer?
Breast cancer typically is detected either during a screening examination, before symptoms have developed, or after symptoms have developed, when a woman feels a lump. Most masses seen on a mammogram and most breast lumps turn out to be benign; that is, they are not cancerous, do not grow uncontrollably or spread, and are not life-threatening.
Why is it important to detect Breast Cancer early?
Breast cancer ranks as one of the leading cancer types in number of cases diagnosed and is second only to lung cancer as the most prevalent cause of cancer death in women. Breast cancer is the most common invasive cancer in females worldwide, it accounts for 16% of all female cancers and 22.9% of invasive cancers in women. 18.2% of all cancer deaths worldwide, including both males and females are from breast cancer so yeah, if you're a man and think you're safe, unfortunately you're not!
I just did a breast USG last week at a local hospital to make sure everything's fine and apparently mine aren't 100% normal !!! it's not dangerous but still, i have "homeworks" to do... T__T
Dear readers, if you're not sure if yours are in a good state of health / feel any discomfort / find any changes / lumps / abnormalities etc. please please pretty please i encourage you to go to the nearest hospital in your area and get yours checked immediately for your own sake!!! >___<
The USG cost is affordable, i did it for IDR 325.000 and if (i hope not) you suffer from breast cancer, you can receive immediate treatments needed and can eventually save your life.
I gathered and summed up the informations from Google, If you want to know more about anything regarding breast cancer, just google it. :)
Moving on to my make-up creation, i don't necessarily think because it's a pink ribbon inspired then i should draw pink ribbons all over my face, lol. I want to accentuate light pink as the rose petals colour and decided to make my make-up kinda looks like a light pink rose garden.
It's said that light pink conveys admiration and sympathy. This symbolizes my feelings towards people who suffer from breast cancer, admiration for fighting the disease and sympathy because their journeys' aren't gonna be anywhere near easy. :)
Here are some photos of my pink ribbon make-up inspired :
