Following surgery for cancer treatment there can be lots of restrictions on the types of products that you are advised to use, especially while you are in hospital. However, this is also a period of time when you’re very much in need of nurturing and support, and the right skincare routine can really help to give you back a sense of self.
Once you’re beginning to recover, helping surgical scars to heal can also take time, resulting in itchiness and tightness as the skin starts to repair. You should always follow medical advice before applying skincare products to any wounds, but the right product can help to limit scarring as well as any discomfort through the healing process.
At Jennifer Young, our skincare line has been designed for cancer patients going through all stages of treatment, including surgery. Working with oncology nurses and patients, our skincare products have been created to meet both specific and holistic needs of clients who have been diagnosed with cancer, choosing natural ingredients for their quality, gentleness and effectiveness.
Our skincare products are designed to target specific issues caused or exaggerated by cancer treatment. For example, our Defiant Beauty Itchy Skin Oil is a gentle multi-tasking oil that acts as a moisturiser, reducing itching no matter what the cause, while our Well Being Beauty Sleep Ritual Foot Soak created with the intention of promoting restful sleep during periods of anxiety, as well as nourishing dry skin in the process.
