DID YOU KNOW?
You can reduce breast cancer risk in four simple steps:
Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle:
Eat a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
Limit your intake of red and processed meats.
Reduce your consumption of sugary drinks and high-calorie, low-nutrient foods.
Control portion sizes to manage your weight and maintain a healthy body mass index (BMI).
Engage in regular physical activity, such as brisk walking, jogging, or swimming. Aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per week.
Limit Alcohol Consumption:
If you choose to drink alcohol, do so in moderation. Limit alcohol intake to one drink per day or less.
Do not smoke or use tobacco products, and avoid exposure to secondhand smoke.
Be Breast Aware and Get Regular Screenings:
Perform regular breast self-exams to become familiar with the normal appearance and feel of your breasts. Report any changes to your healthcare provider.
Follow recommended breast cancer screening guidelines, which may include mammograms, clinical breast exams, and, in some cases, breast MRIs. The timing and frequency of screenings may vary based on your age and risk factors, so consult with your healthcare provider.
Additionally, it's important to be aware of your family history and genetic predisposition to breast cancer. If you have a family history of breast cancer or other risk factors, discuss your individualized risk assessment and screening options with a healthcare professional.
Please note that while these lifestyle choices may help reduce the risk of breast cancer, they cannot guarantee prevention. Regular check-ups with a healthcare provider and early detection are crucial for the best chances of detecting and treating breast cancer at an early stage. Always consult with a healthcare professional for personalized advice and guidance regarding breast cancer risk reduction.

How DEMIblue is Supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month Reduce Breast Cancer Risk
DEMIblue Cares initiative is to support breast cancer survivors through proactive wellness efforts and self-care. We offer a "Survivor's Spotlight Series", where we feature survivor stories for support, encouragement, and inspiration. Women are educating women on the harsh chemicals found in many nail polish brands, their health implications, and the alternatives we offer as a brand. A portion of our proceeds during the month of October is used to gift survivors free nail polish products and services!
In 2022, we introduced 'The Juliet Box' a self-care survivor box filled with DEMIblue products and all-natural products by women-owned businesses. Thanks to our Nailfriend community and their donations, we awarded 3 survivors with their very own box! SEND YOUR GIFT TODAY!
