It is widely known that hair loss can be one of the common and distressing side effects of some cancer treatments. However, chemotherapy and targeted radiotherapy, and the hair loss they can cause, can also lead to dry skin that is predisposed to breakouts.
While we can’t prevent hair loss caused by cancer treatment, we can help to relieve the other side effects and protect the skin. Therefore, Jennifer Young’s skincare products for the scalp are designed not only to address skin issues as they arise, but also to help protect hair follicles where possible, for when cancer treatment finishes.
Created to be restorative and enjoyable to use, products make for a thoughtful gift either for yourself or someone you care about, for both men and women. Available as sets and as individual items, popular products include the Defiant Beauty Dry Scalp Treatment, which helps relieve irritation and prevent breakouts using a blend of tea tree, bergamot and lime.
Another favourite is the Defiant Beauty Cool and Refresh face mist, which can also be used as a cooling spritz for body and scalp and helps to relieve hot flushes and sooth dry skin, whether you’re looking for a general refresh in hospital or to ease a hot flush.
