We all need a little TLC
TOUCH your breasts. Can you feel anything unusual?
LOOK for changes. Is there anything unusual in shape or texture?

It's a good idea to check your breasts once a month when you aren't on your period.
♡ It's important to know how your breasts normally look & feel. That way, you can spot any unusual changes quickly & have them checked by a doctor
♡ Try using a body lotion or gel when checking breasts, this will make it more comfortable
♡ A mirror can help you look at the parts of your breast that aren't as easy to see
♡ Don't forget to check your armpits & up to your collarbone too
