October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and with breast cancer now being the most common cancer in Britain - 45,500 cases are diagnosed each year - it is especially important for us to give our support. Back in 1992 Evelyn Lauder co-created the Pink Ribbon that has become such a strong symbol for the cause. Show your support by wearing a pink ribbon (the Estee Lauder version is available to buy here); donating directly to the UKs Breast Cancer Care charity or by snapping up a Breast Cancer Awareness beauty product with proceeds that go to charity. Here is ELLEs six favourite buys
