While you live with cancer, your body and mind can go through many changes. To navigate your journey ahead it is essential to practice self-care to enrich your mind, body and soul. Indulging in the things you love the most can be incredibly satisfying. Whether you love exercising, meditating or trying new make-up routines, now is the time to put yourself at the top of your priority list. It is crucial, also, to look after your skin as best as you can to prepare for your treatments, and to rejuvenate yourself afterwards. Your skin is part of who you are. If your skin is affected by something, so are you. Taking care of your body, through gentle exercise and finding the right skin care routine, can make a real difference to how you experience cancer.

Which step are you
in your cancer journey?
PREPARING MY BODY AND MIND
NURTURING MY BODY AND MIND
As the skin on your face is exposed daily to UV light, pollution, and all sorts of outside aggressions it gets dirty faster than the rest of your body, To preserve it, start by carefully cleansing it every morning and evening.
TAKING CARE OF MY BODY AND
MIND AFTER TREATMENT
Although the most difficult period of your cancer treatment is behind you, it is key to continue with the good skincare routine you have embraced during treatment. Your skin will need extra love and care during this time, as you may still have some sensitivity, dryness or irritation. There are several areas that will require extra precautions, such as sun exposure.
HELP MOISTURISE AND COMFORT
Point of view
"If we understand what may happen to our skin during treatment for cancer we can prepare and pre-empt potential side effects. It also gives the individual the opportunity to get the skin as healthy as possible prior to treatment and allows them to have potential skincare solutions during treatment."
