Caring For Your Skin While Undergoing Cancer Treatments
During cancer treatments, more than 80% of patients will suffer from skin reactions of varying severity as some oncology treatments weaken the skin’s natural defenses. These treatments may cause acute dryness, itchiness, radiodermatitis (lesions caused by radiation) that target hands and feet, inflammation of the hair follicles, as well as affecting finger/toe nails. You may develop a minor rash or sunburn easily; this is called photosensitivity. Some people also have skin pigmentation changes.
When undergoing treatment that can be so harsh on the skin, you need to perfect your routine with proper hydration to help reinforce the skin barrier and alleviate discomfort. Our Island Moisture Creme was specifically formulated with those with such skin issues in mind. This rich and creamy moisturizer boosts cell turnover and promotes healing for sensitive or damaged skin, leaving your skin feeling nourished and protected.
Tips That May Help Combat Skin Issues Caused By Cancer Treatments:
I went to Watermania w/the kids yesterday & was wondering if the makeup would stay on. I’m undergoing Cancer treatment and my skin is dull, dry and itchy I sat in the
steam room & was submerged in the pool a couple of times (I didn’t actually swim as I have a 5 y.o. & 4 y.o. I have to keep my eyes out for). Of course I didn’t rub my face after I was soaked.
I was surprised that my face still looked great! Thank you for such a great product!
The BEST cleanser and moisturizer I’ve Ever used. I first heard about this from my doctor as I was undergoing Cancer treatment. Always sold out in the one store in the whole city these products are sold. Gentle, effective on my sensitive skin and smells AMAZING. I’m a lifer with these products.
I am very pleased with the Purely Tinted Moisturizer. It gives a lovely natural finish & also provides more coverage than I expected. I was expecting that I would need some extra cover but this really covers all my pigmentation very well. I do wish the SPF was higher than 15 though. I've had Skin Cancer, so I need to wear spf underneath the PTM.
All in all, I will continue using.
I was having so many issues with my sensitive dry scalp. After chemo and radiation. My naturopath suggested I try the foaming facial cleanser that duals as a shampoo.
it really calmed down my dry itchy skin and now I use the island moisturizer with it. I leave the foaming cleanser in the shower, and my husband uses it as a shampoo now as well.
