When you’re in remission from cancer, skincare is an opportunity to provide healing from the physical effects of cancer treatments including chemotherapy and radiotherapy. However, it can also provide soothing rituals to ease low moods as well. Remission can be an understandably anxious time for anyone who has recently had cancer and knowing that what we put on our skin is safe can be an important part of feeling a sense of agency when so much is beyond your control.
The effects of cancer treatment on the body can last a while, and this period of recovery is an important time when you can support the body in repairing itself. The right skincare products during cancer remission can provide relief for conditions caused by treatments like chemotherapy and radiotherapy, such as eczema, brittle nails, skin-reddening and discolouration.
At Jennifer Young, our skincare line has been designed for anyone in remission from cancer. Working with oncology nurses and cancer patients, they have been created to meet the needs of clients who have recently finished cancer treatments, ranging from chemotherapy to surgery. Our products use natural ingredients that have been chosen for their quality as well as their gentleness, hinging on our expert knowledge of aromatherapy and essential oils. They are designed to target specific issues and aid the body’s recovery. For example, our Defiant Beauty Healing Hand Balm acts as a hand mask, nail moisturiser and a hand cream for sore and flakey hands, while the Well Being Beauty Mental Clarity Foot Soak was formulated to reduce headaches.
