Proper care of skin is critical during cancer... to protect vulnerable skin areas and promote skin healing.

Your skin's condition, texture, color and hydration status can be affected by the type of cancer you have and how intense the treatment is. This can lead to possible infection, so your skin needs special care. When your physician says your treated skin is ready for skincare, here are helpful guidelines to follow.

Keep Skin Very Hydrated

To hydrate the facial skin… use ULTRA Intensive Moisture Therapy day and night and once in between to heavily hydrate dry areas. For severe facial dryness, also use EXTRACT Dry Skin Hydrating Plant Oil twice a day under ULTRA Intensive Moisture Therapy to protect, soothe, calm and help with cracking and discomfort. To hydrate the hands, feet and body… use NEROLI Body Silkening Nutrient Creme at least 3 times a day to give immediate relief while powerfully moisturizing and protecting the dry areas.

Cancer is a real challenge for anyone facing this disease. It is vital to make the best choices possible for your maximum health and well-being... before, during and after treatment.

Medical treatments for cancer have advanced dramatically over the recent years for survival and longevity of life. However, these treatments can be very harsh to the skin and can cause great discomfort.

It is good to prepare for skin changes from cancer treatments and know how to avoid possible problems to maximize your comfort level and provide relief.

Chemotherapy and Radiation can be Very Harsh to Skin

"Treatments for cancer can affect your skin at times, leaving it dry or flaky and more sensitive to exposure to sun, wind, and other elements," says

Both chemotherapy and radiation can cause the skin to be extremely dry and sensitive.

Chemotherapy can affect your natural moisture skin barrier by reducing the amount of oil your glands secrete, therefore making your skin very dry and irritated. Hand Foot Syndrome can develop–a condition where the hands and feet become so severely cracked and dry that they peel, are very sensitive, and can interfere with your daily activities.

Radiation can cause dry flaky skin, redness, itching, rashes, weepy areas, burning, tenderness and skin color changes (lighter skin turns red or tan-looking and darker skin can get darker). Consult your medical team before using any skincare products.

Tissue Expanded Skin Must be as Healthy as Possible

To help promote optimum results for Post-Mastectomy Reconstruction, excellent skin health is very important through the duration of the tissue expansion treatments.

Avoid Harsh Cosmetic Chemicals on Your Skin... found in Most Skincare

Almost all skincare products, including medical brands, can contain standard cosmetic chemicals which can be potentially very harsh to skin.

  • This can increase redness, irritation, rashes and dryness that may already be present or can increase the chances of these side effects occuring to the already vulnerable cancer-treated skin.
  • By providing 'botanical nutrients' for skin with L'ATHENE Nutrient Skin Treatments, you can help your skin repair, restore and regenerate to optimum skin health.

Skin Tips:

  • Shower with an organic shampoo to cleanse the body to help keep the skin in better moisture balance. This decreases the detergents on your body to keep the skin from being stripped and dry. Hydrate by drinking more.
  • Drier skin, which often occurs, needs special care, so keeping well hydrated with fluids throughout the day as well as moisturizing your skin with pure nutrients can help to reduce the likelihood of dry skin.
  • Be consistent for optimal results.
  • Proper nutrition is vital... plus regular exercise, plenty of rest and stress reduction.
