From chemotherapy to radiotherapy, surgery and all the bits in between, cancer treatment has side effects that affect the skin, hair, nails, mental health and emotional wellbeing. While the 'modern' man is stereotypically more adroit when it comes to skincare, addressing skincare needs whilst taking pleasure in the products you're using isn't always an easy balance to create.
However, having those little moments of self-care can be game changing to how you feel each day. Whether there's a man in your life who's got a hospital stay coming up, who's mid chemo, or recovering post cancer-treatment, here are our top recommended gifts for men during cancer treatment.
For men going through chemotherapy
Designed specifically for those going through chemotherapy, the Men's Chemo Care Hero Collection contains three key skincare products to soothe the side effects of chemo on the skin, as well as a dark chocolate mint crunch to help to combat the nausea experienced by 75% of cancer patients. Our Defiant Beauty Hero Balm is a natural balm formulated to be used multiple times a day to help reduce chapped lips. Our Defiant Beauty Itchy Skin Oil is a best-seller used to address the chronic itching that's common with chemo, and our Defiant Beauty Hero Balm is a multi-tasking product that can help with dry skin and brittle nails, used as a balm or a mask.
