Skin Care for Cancer Patients
During chemotherapy, your skin may become drier and more brittle than ever before. Your nails may also become brittle, and skin may become discoloured and sensitive from the medicines. Healthy skin is essential for overall health during cancer treatments, as dry and sensitive skin is more prone to eczema, itchiness, and sores that can become infected. When your immune system is compromised during chemotherapy, you are more vulnerable that ever before. Don’t forget, your skin’s job is to protect you – help it to do its job by keeping it healthy during treatment.
Avoid the Bad Stuff
Your skin acts more like a sponge than a barrier. Of the 10,500 known ingredients in the cosmetics and skin care industry, only about 10 percent of them have been evaluated for skin safety by an accountable institution such as the FDA. More than 1,100 of these ingredients have currently been banned for use in cosmetics in the European Union due to health concerns. When your body is already compromised due to cancer treatments, you should be feeding it quality nutrient-dense products, not potentially harmful chemicals. The easiest way to do this is to look into custom products.
Why Custom Products?
If you take good care of your skin during chemotherapy, it is possible to have soft, healthy, and comfortable skin throughout the cancer treatment process. By creating the beauty products that you want, you can ensure that your skin is getting the nutrients it needs to stay healthy and comfortable during cancer treatments. The cosmetics market is highly competitive and innovation is the key to success – providing an option that is guaranteed not to harm your customers in a sensitive time is bound to be as success among many.
Because the skin can become brittle, dry, and painful during chemotherapy, it can be daunting for those battling cancer to find an appropriate skin care line. By creating a custom line, we can ensure that those who need it are avoiding the harsh chemicals and nourishing their skin without the potential of negative effects.
