Women don’t stop being women just because they have cancer – yet it’s hard to believe that once diagnosed, women are often refused beauty treatments at salons and spa’s due to lack of oncology training.

The battle against cancer marks a time when relaxation and specialist skincare advice is needed most. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy can have a devastating affect on both the mind and body – greatly affecting body image and self confidence.

Skincare concerns for cancer patients

The top skincare concerns for women being treated for cancer are:

  • Hair loss
  • Dehydration
  • Itchiness
  • Sensitivity 
  • Inflammation
  • Rashes/hives
  • Pigmentation
  • Fragile skin prone to bruising/bleeding
  • Premature ageing

When considering beauty treatments look for a certified oncology skincare therapist. Training and certification are imperative – a proper understanding and knowledge of skincare ingredients such as phytoestrogens are required as some cancers can be hormone responsive.

Also a proper understanding of massage techniques for a cancer patient is very important because surgery such as lymph node removal can cause painful swelling known as lymphedema that can last a lifetime. A certified oncology skincare therapist knows that cancer patients may have a compromised immune system and be extremely susceptible to illness/infection and for that reason they will have impeccable personal & salon hygiene to safeguard against this.
