The impact of radiotherapy on the skin can be distressing and uncomfortable or even painful, in addition to the anxiety that you may be feeling following a cancer diagnosis. For these reasons, skincare during radiotherapy treatments can be both important and powerful, providing a holistic and meditative routine as well as practical relief for some of the skin conditions caused by cancer treatment such as eczema, dermatitis, skin-reddening and soreness. Often, you will find that if you are having radiotherapy, it may just the skin in the area being treated that becomes sore and sensitive for a while, so your needs may be quite specific.
At Jennifer Young, our skincare line has been designed for anyone going through cancer treatments. Working with oncology nurses and cancer patients, they have been created to meet the needs of anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer and is going through radiotherapy. We use natural ingredients that have been chosen for their quality and their gentleness, in order to limit the likelihood of a reaction. We also like to limit the number of ingredients to help you identify anything that you do develop a sensitivity to as treatment goes on.
Our skincare products are designed to target specific issues caused or exaggerated by cancer treatment and they are designed for both men and women. For example, our Well Being Beauty Mental Clarity Moisturising Shea Mousse was formulated to relieve headaches while our Men's Defiant Beauty Nail Oil gently moisturises damaged nails that often become broken, ridged and fragile because of cancer treatment.
