As the body’s first line of defense against sunlight, chemicals, and infectious germs, the skin is also one of the areas of the body most commonly affected by treatments for cancer. Treating cancer through chemotherapy and radiation therapy kills cancer cells, but unfortunately, many patients suffer from many unwanted side effects such as hair loss, dry, irritated skin, and even brittle nails.
Watching your skin start to dry up and peel off while going through therapy can be almost agonizing for some cancer patients. Not only are the side effects painful at times but they change the appearance of the patient which can be very disheartening for someone going through such a harsh treatment. All of the synthetic, fake chemicals found in most products on the market today can make it difficult for cancer patients to find soothing, healing beauty creams that are gentle enough to use daily to soothe the skin without causing further irritation to the skin. Here at Fight Cancer with Beauty we know how important it is to feel beautiful for your overall wellbeing. This is why we have created a line of safe skin care products specially formulated for cancer patients that is organic, natural and chemical free.
Our skin care products are not only the safest but they also contain natural healing agents which help reduce inflammation and aide the skin’s regeneration process. ALL our skin care products are safe to use before, during and after chemo therapy or radiation therapy treatments, and are recommended by the most renowned oncologists worldwide. So whether you are looking for a moisturizer, a sun diffuser, or even nail polish- Fight Cancer with Beauty- has what you are looking for!
Chemo is designed to prevent the replication of cancer cells. Unfortunately it can also have a harsh impact on cancer patients’ skin as it inadvertently targets fast-replicating skin cells. Patients can experience side-effects such as painful rashes and raw skin. This is why we have created skin care products specifically designed for patients undergoing chemo treatments.
Many cancer patients undergoing radiotherapy are left with radiation burn, or with what’s known as radiation dermatitis. It results in irritated, red and painful skin at the entry point of treatment where the surface radiation is the strongest. Our gentle, specialised moisturizers soothe the affected areas, and through use of natural healing agents help the skin return to a healthy condition.
