Chemotherapy can be an extremely distressing part of cancer treatment because of the physical impact it has, in addition to the emotional strain of having experienced a diagnosis in the first place. As a result, skincare whilst undergoing chemotherapy, can be particularly important and powerful. Lots of cancer patients feel overwhelmed about choosing skincare during cancer treatment because of the idea that some ingredients may have carcinogenic qualities or simply not be suitable during treatment. Furthermore, chemotherapy and other cancer treatments can cause sensitivities and the skin conditions that make finding natural, gentle and effective products, can be a source of great relief as well as being practically helpful.
At Jennifer Young, our skincare line includes products that have been specifically designed to help and support anyone going through chemotherapy. Working with oncology nurses and cancer patients, they have been created to meet the needs of clients going through this particular type of cancer treatment. They use natural ingredients that have been chosen for their quality and their gentleness - limiting them to those that are least likely to cause a negative reaction. They are designed to target specific issues caused or exaggerated by cancer treatment such as skin pigmentation, chronic itching, dermatitis, brittle nails and hair loss. For example, our Defiant Beauty Dry Scalp Treatment helps relieve irritation of the skin, prevent breakouts and ease tightness, while our Defiant Beauty Cleanse & Moisturise is a gentle multi-purpose balm that was formulated especially for skin as it undergoes and recovers from chemotherapy treatment.
