Skin cells don't replace themselves like normal when you're undergoing cancer treatment, which can leave skin fragile, dry, irritated and sensitive. Skin is our protective barrier and there is an increased risk of infection if our skin becomes too dry or irritated and cracks or breaks. Patients undergoing treatment need to be particularly careful with their skin. It is generally best to use products that are gentle, hydrating and hypoallergenic and avoid products containing harsh ingredients and common allergens such as alcohol, fragrance and preservatives. We have carefully curated a selection of gentle and natural products that have been recommended by those affected by cancer, as well as a variety of products which can be used to soothe sore, damaged and irritated skin. However, please double check with medical professionals before using any new product.
