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.
This means your loved one needs to be extra careful in caring for their skin during cancer treatment. In general, use simple products that are gentle, hydrating and hypoallergenic and avoid harsh ingredients and common allergens like fragrance, alcohol and preservatives.
We have carefully curated a selection of gentle and natural products that have been recommended by others affected by cancer.
