So, as you may know it's Cervical Screening Awareness Week (9th - 15th June). I'm a bit late with this post as this week is drawing to a close, but better late than never, ey? In order to raise awareness about cervical screening The Red Lippy Project has been set up! You have to find your brightest red lipstick and wear it during the week to raise awareness and spread the word, which I'm doing now! The Eve Appeal has joined up with The Red Lippy Project to highlight the importance of attending a cervical screening.

Red Lips Say:
“We wanted to make the little talked about cervical test less taboo. The campaign is celebrating femininity and the importance of looking after ourselves and each other. The initial idea was to create a platform that talked openly about the importance of cervical screenings and cervical cancer with a fun, bold, visual language that women and especially younger women can relate to."

I thinks this is a great idea, and a great way to spread the word too! The research by Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust found that for younger women aged between 25 and 29, who may be due their first test, only 63pc attended screening last year. This is concerning because apparently cervical cancer is the most common cancer in the UK for women under 35, according to the trust.(information from the telegraph) Although it may be 5 minutes of awkwardness, it could save your life.

I'd love for everyone else to whip on a bit of red lipstick and spread the word! You can check out their Facebook page, website, donate, join the conversation on Twitter (@redlippyproject) and Instagram (#theredlippyproject).

Thanks for reading, what red lipstick have you got on your lips?

  11. This is a great idea. Far too few women know about the causes of cervical cancer and that they should be getting checked for it yearly starting at a relatively young age. I do wish I would have known about this sooner because I would have rocked some red for cervical cancer awareness.
