There’s no doubt you know someone whose life has been affected by breast cancer. It could be a friend, colleague, your sister, mom, even yourself.

The new Touch Transforms movement benefiting Look Good… Feel Better recently caught my eye. Look Good… Feel Better teaches beauty techniques to cancer patients, to help them feel beautiful and confident as they go through cancer treatment. As you know from reading my columns, I am a big fan of Skin Authority’s products. Touch Transforms is being led by Skin Authority along with respected names including Clarisonic, The Ritz-Carlton and 50 top spas and resorts. Touch Transforms is a movement to bring the power of human touch to those who need it through many different efforts and products.

“Touch Transforms will make visible changes now for women with cancer. When someone looks in the mirror and likes the image they see, they instantly feel better!” said Skin Authority CEO Celeste Hilling. How can you get involved in  Touch Transforms? There are a couple ways to take part:
