10 Natural Skincare Products to Consider after Cancer treatment

Cancer treatment (Chemotherapy, Radiotherapy, medication) can be harsh on your skin, hair and nails. Your skin happens to be the largest organ in your body with a total average mass of 2 sq metres.

Treatment can sometimes leave your skin feeling dry, itchy, sensitive and dehydrated. You may even find that you are unable to tolerate products you once loved. Then there is the big dilenma about what products are safe for your beauty routines. 

Some well known brands are unsafe for your use as they contain lots of chemicals. There is a vast amount of information that proves that these chemicals are not only harmful to the skin but the overall body as well. Many of us believe that skin is an exterior organ, therefore, anything applied over it can’t harm other body organs. This concept is wrong. The skin is absorbent. So, in the long run, chemicals can enter your body through the skin. 

In an attempt to save people from these chemicals, experts are now promoting the use of natural skincare products. There are many quality organic skincare products available on the market.

There is so much confusion on the matter but we are here to help.

We believe natural is best. Go as natural as possible. Mineral oil based products irritate the skin and does not supply any nutrients either. Your skin needs feeding, with ingredients that are designed for repair, protect and nourish it after cancer treatment. Buying natural beauty products, looking at your diet, sleep, getting exercise and learning to destress are great investments in your wellbeing.

There are so many beauty brands in the market at the moment and finding the right ones (natural, organic, safe and affordable) can be very tricky so we have done the work for you.  

We have carefully selected 10 products in this post that we think are worth considering to help you look your best from the inside out
