Breast Cancer Skincare
It is breast cancer awareness month. A disease that impacts women all over the globe. It is estimated that 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. It affects our grandmother, mothers, and even daughters. We want to help raise awareness and offer our skincare expertise if you or someone you know is undergoing treatment. Most common breast cancer treatments can range from chemotherapy, radiation, and mastectomy. They all impact the skin in different ways, but we are going to go through and give more tips on how to keep your skin healthy and moisturized as possible during this process.
If you are doing Chemotherapy..
Chemotherapy is a process where different types of anti-cancer drugs are administered. It comes with several symptoms like nausea, but in regards to the skin, the most common would be dryness. This is worrisome because dry skin can lead to breakage and ultimately cause infections. The solution is to keep skin moisturized at all times!
An ideal solution is our Revolution cream. This retinoid-free skin enhancement contains Acetyl hexapeptide-37 which increases hydration. Formulated with the barrier enhancing lipids Cholesterol, Fatty acids and Ceramides in. Fortified with Niacinamide and antioxidant Vitamins C and E, Ferulic acid ester and texture-enhancing peptides. It is medical grade strength but ideal for sensitive dry skin.
If you are doing Radiation
Radiation effects are most like a sunburn. It leaves a red, itchy area with a burning sensation. To prevent discomfort, we recommend using a serum to make sure your skin is hydrated!
