• Gently removes impurities
• Soothing exfoliation
• Hygienic way to cleanse sensitive skin
• Does not irritate the skin
Exfoliation is difficult for cancer patients and those going through treatment as the skin can become sore and flaking. Scrubs may irritate the skin and can hurt as they are applied. Harsh exfoliants and even gentle scrubs are inappropriate as the skin is so sensitive and reactive.
Here’s the dilemma, we need to remove the flaking skin as well as dead skin cells so that your lovely new skin can shine through – but we can’t do anything to further irritate your skin as you are already battling the unexpected side-effects of chemotherapy and treatment for cancer.
How about a gentle exfoliating sponge or silk beauty cocoon – eureka! Even better the Defiant Beauty Exfoliating Sponge can withstand boiling. Good hygiene in the use of make-up and skincare is important for all. Boiling can destroy anything that lurks unseen in the sponge.
How can gentle exfoliating help your skin:
1. Exfoliating, the removal of dead skin, and in the case of some cancer patients, keeps the skin soft and allows your new skin to shine through
2. Pores are less likely to clog
3. The skin’s natural renewal process will be quicker
4. Skin tone can be more even, discoloration will be minimised
5. your skin will be brighter and more youthful as we will all be able to see the bright new skin cells that have been hiding under those stubborn dry skin cells.
Use a damp exfoliating sponge to remove, using sweeping upward strokes.
Care of your Defiant Beauty Exfoliating Sponge
