There’s good news: The mortality rate for breast cancer has fallen by 38 percent over the last two and a half decades, according to the American Cancer Society. This means that not only have diagnosis and treatment improved, but we’re also learning more about controlling key risk factors. Here’s the best, latest advice for protecting yourself.

Mattify

If you prefer a matte finish to a dewy one, try Flower Beauty in Your Prime Pore-Minimizing Primer. It absorbs oil and minimizes pores for a flawless look under makeup or on its own.

Boost Radiance

For a more luminous look, choose a formula with reflective pigments or a bit of iridescence, which give skin a healthy glow. If you have oily skin, reach for Dr. Brandt Skincare Pores No More Luminizing Primer which mattifies while adding a natural-looking shine.

Save Dry Skin

A two-in-one moisturizing primer will cut a step from your regimen while keeping you dewy. Try REN Perfect Canvas–it has hyaluronans that convert to hyaluronic acid in skin.
