The Gift of Skincare for Cancer Sufferers
Before I start, please be aware I am not a medical doctor and the following advice is based purely on feedback from real people who have felt great benefits from my suggestions.
I get many emails from the friends and family of people who are going through cancer treatment. Radiation, in particular, can be very damaging to the skin.
And even though these people are fighting a bigger battle, having itchy, sore or dry skin can make everything seems even worse. A cancer diagnosis is often the catalyst to take a good look at diet, as well as home, skin and body care products. Switching to all-natural and gentle products is a process many cancer sufferers go through to support their healing.
I created my Calming Collection to be as gentle, nourishing and healing as possible. It is a full line of luxurious skin care products that are suitable for even the most delicate and sensitive skin. I use only certified organic plant extracts with wonderful nutritional and healing benefits. I use plant carrier oils, butters (and beeswax) and hydrosols (flower waters) for their effective but gentle action on the skin but I avoid essential oils. Essential oils, although very valuable in skin care, can be too powerful for skin damaged by radiation. I feel they are best left for skin more robust.
The most popular products tried by cancer patients are the Jojoba & Calendula Calming Cleanser, Calming Chamomile & Rose Geranium Hydrating Mist and the Shea & Starflower Calming Moisturizer. These can be found as full-size products or bought as part of the Calming Skincare Set.
The set, which should last 2 to 3 weeks, is a great way to try the products and begin to feel their benefits. It makes a wonderful, thoughtful gift for someone going through cancer treatment.
