Skin Care

By Tallulah Dumonde

DDF (Doctor’s Dermatologic Formula) and Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization have teamed up for women everywhere in a skincare-donation project this fall.

Just last month DDF introduced its Cellular Cleansing Complex, an exfoliating cleanser that prepares skin for other DDF protecting and toning treatments. The formulation is a gentle cream base, colored the pale pink of breast cancer awareness ribbons. For every purchase of this product during October and November, DDF will direct a percentage to support Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization. They will donate a minimum of 5,000 dollars.

Y-ME is dedicated to survivors of breast cancer, offering a website ( full of health information, and a 24-hour counseling hotline made up entirely of women who have survived breast cancer themselves. Y-ME is particularly devoted to women of limited resources, providing support groups, wigs and prostheses, and hosting prevention workshops.

DDF Founder Howard Sobel, M.D., has joined with Y-ME’s mission, wishing to “do everything we can to advance breast cancer awareness, and provide support for breast cancer patients, their families and survivors.” He encourages women to do a self-exam regularly, along with caring regularly for their skin, for preventative health care.

Cellular Cleansing Complex may be purchased online at, and at finer department stores like Bergdorf Goodman and Nordstrom.

For breast cancer support and information, Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization may be reached at 1-800-221-2141 (English) and 1-800-986-9505 (Spanish).
