October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease that affects most women today. However, despite people being aware of the magnitude of the disease, they forget to check up on themselves. The truth is, it can happen to anyone. We need to encourage one another to make an effort to know how to detect it in its early stages. We also need to inform the community by letting them know how to help! 

For Clozette, we chose to explain why it's associated with the colour pink. Know why and how to incorporate pink with these 5 points! And don't just stop there, let it spread on social media, or even go out there and discuss the matter with your friends and family. You'll never know--you might have just saved someone from breast cancer!

The first known use of a pink ribbon in connection with breast cancer awareness was in the fall of 1991, when the Susan G. Komen Foundation handed out pink ribbons to participants in its New York City race for breast cancer survivors. If you don't have a pink Ribbon on hand, you can either make one or wear something similar like a pink necklace!

Wear a pink necklace for an eye-catching BCA accessory! The idea of the colour pink was actually derived from the popular red ribbon for AIDS awareness. Now, since Breast Cancer doesn't only happen in women, a blue ribbon is given to represent that men are also part of the awareness campaign

Early symptoms of breast cancer involves self breast examinations. In a nutshell, if your breast feels different, changes its appearance, and discharges bloody or clear liquid, then you better got to the doctor quick. Using your pink bag, don't forget to bring your all documents to give the doctor a clearer picture of your medical history.

If the iconic pink ribbon is not enough for you, pair it with pink heels or sneakers for a chic look for a cause. The pink ribbon actually represents fear of breast cancer, hope for the future, and the charitable goodness of people and businesses who publicly support the breast cancer movement. It's also a way to associate oneself with breast cancer, by promoting breast cancer awareness and supporting fundraising efforts.

Sport Pink Nail Polish on your tips for an easy pink statement! While you're at it, let them know that it is a myth that microwaves, mobile phones, deodorant, and caffeine are what causes breast cancer.

In fact, aside from damage to a cell's DNA, there is no exact of this disease. People exposed to high risk factors (such as drinking and smoking) and a family background of breast cancer, can acquire the disease but it is not always the case. Just like any other disease, prevention is always the key. So start living a healthy lifestyle from this day on!

It's another month and that means another instalment of our monthly StyleScope; and this month, we've got the Libra ladies in mind! After all, for the latter half of September until the first 3 weeks of October, there is one star sign that rule them all--the Libra.

Libra women are remarkably charming, sincere, intellectual, and appreciative people. They are calm by nature as they have the ability to distinguish between rational thought and emotional impulse--and act accordingly. Coincidentally, they are also known as the Fashion Mavens of the Zodiac world!

So if you're a Libra woman just like our Clozette Ambassador Nelle, here are the style and beauty finds especially curated for you!

The Libra women is all about balance, and despite all the opportunities that come your way, you manage to keep everything in its right place. Expect that there are big decisions you need to make that may affect and your loved ones. As a Libra, doing the right thing almost all the time is what you choose, and we commend you for that! 

Colour Of The Month: Cream

Colours that harmonise with the Libran vibrations are white and pink; but insert a twist to it and surround yourself with cream instead. Black is a favourite of yours as well but everybody wears them. So it's best to stick to cream for a gentle and benevolent aura throughout the month. 

Fashion Icon: Gwyneth Paltrow

It's no doubt that Gwyneth Paltrow is your celebrity fashion icon, she was born on Sept. 27 and she's a Libra! On and off the red carpet she always slays it with her elegant, classic, pieces and effortless makeup. Just like the Libra personality, her look is always balanced--nothing more, nothing less. 

Style-To-Rock: Romantic

As a fashion maven, your sense of style has always veered towards plain colours, flowing cuts, and designer chic pieces. You insert sexy feminine touches without being too revealing, giving your look a soft, romantic touch. For your material of choice, lace and delicate lines would suit you well. If you want to go casual, try peasant blouses and tie-up sandals for a more flowy silhouette. 

Beauty Items: Shu Uemura's  Vision of Beauty Collection Vol. 2. Haute Street

It's a given that you're a classy, romantic, and polished girl; but your makeup need not always be in sync with your neutral palette. Add pops of bright colours on either your eyes or lips with Shu Uemura's Vision of Beauty Collection Vol. 2-- Haute Street collection. With the green eye pencil (to match your birth stone's colour), apply a pop of colour on the outer corner or inner corner of the eyes, the end of the eyebrows, the cheekbones, and lip corners for a statement V-look!

When it comes to the ideal makeup remover, we are always on a lookout for these three criteria: it should remove our makeup efficiently, it should not clog pores, and it should deliver a soothing post-cleansing freshness. With the latest ORBIS The Cleansing ONE, it seems that we have found our perfect match.

One of the pioneering skincare brands to introduce the original concept of 100% Oil Free skincare products, Japanese skincare brand ORBIS has conquered yet another milestone--by merging cutting edge technology and moisture boosting ingredients to create a makeup remover that melts away makeup efficiently while enhancing skin’s natural moisture level.

Aptly named The Cleansing ONE, this 100% oil free waterproof makeup remover is powered by an innovative Sensor Catch Technology, a smart system that specifically targets makeup and impurities and melts them away without disturbing the essential moisture-retaining intercellular lipids on our skin. It is also equipped with hydrating Soft Moisture ingredient, sodium hyaluronate and anti-aging Licorice Root Extract to leave our skin revitalised, hydrated and plumped up with radiance. 

Oil free also means that it’s suitable for almost all skin types, including acne and oily skin. All these skin-loving properties in one bottle – how’s that for a basic makeup remover?

The ORBIS The Cleansing ONE is now available in Singapore at ORBIS beauty counter at Robinsons The Heeren and Robinsons Raffles City, as well as ORBIS boutiques at Bishan Junction 8, Westgate and Plaza Singapura, and retails for SGD38 for 145ml.
