The sensitive skin on our hands is particularly susceptible to side effects from cancer treatments, ranging from dry, chapped skin to a variety of nail problems, including brittle nails, dry nails, peeling nails and damaged nail beds. Jennifer Young’s skincare products for hands have been specially designed through working with oncology nurses and cancer patients, to soothe side effects during treatments including chemotherapy and radiotherapy. They also help to protect skin and nails until they can recover more thoroughly once treatment has stopped.
Available as individual products as well as collections that work in harmony with one another, the collection includes a nail mask, hand balms and nail oils. Popular products include the Defiant Beauty - Hospital Hydration set, which features ultra-moisturising products to help keep your skin hydrated in hot hospital environments.
The Defiant Beauty Hand And Nail Care Kit is also a thoughtful gift either for a loved one or for yourself, including a nail oil, nail mask and hand balm. Designed to heal and disguise any damage during chemotherapy, as well as to provide a relaxing and meditative routine to help ease anxiety.
A staple, that many of our clients rely on, is the Defiant Beauty Healing Hand Balm, which acts as a hand mask, nail moisturiser and a hand cream using protective cocoa butter and healing calendula amongst its ingredients.
