Breast cancer is one disease we tend to relegate to the ‘I’m too young’ category, because the majority of patients are in their 50s or older. But it can strike at any age. In fact, one in four breast cancer patients are under 50, according to the most recent research from the National Cancer Research Institute.

This October the Irish Cancer Society is asking women of all ages to Paint It Pink to raise money as part of Breast Cancer Awareness month. Money raised will help provide services to support people through their cancer journey and also fund vital cancer research. If you want to get involved, there are myriad ways to show your support, from holding your own pink-themed event to buying from one of the many Irish companies donating to the Paint It Pink fund.

Here are just five hair n’ beauty products you’d be doing well to snap up this month, as the purchase of any of these also covers a donation to the Irish Cancer Society. Win!
