Face cream during chemotherapy

Face cream during chemotherapy: which one to choose?

But let’s go step by step, understand what chemotherapy is, and what kind of influence it can have on the skin. Chemotherapy, we know well, involves the administration of one or more substances that can attack and slow down the cells that multiply the fastest. Specifically, cancer cells, during the replication process. Thus, the goal of chemotherapy is to eliminate them.

Skin care is very important during treatments, as well as before and after, in fact it is good to get into the good habit of always applying cream to the face, as well as the rest of the body.

Why is it important to apply face cream during chemotherapy?

Applying a cream to the face during cancer therapy is important because the side effects can be many and sometimes invasive. Skin changes change the natural structure of the skin, and these may manifest as: spots, itching, redness, flaking etc.

We always recommend following a course of cosmetic treatments during chemotherapy. A good skincare routine can help contain and prevent unwanted skin effects caused by cancer treatments.

Face cream during treatment and beyond…

It is very important to have beauty habits during the chemotherapy course. Simple steps must be followed: cleanse, soothe and protect.

During chemotherapy you need to cleanse your face well with gentle products. Then, immediately afterwards, always apply a face cream to soothe and protect. It is very important to keep the skin hydrated to prevent flaking and redness. Facial cream during chemotherapy should have an emollient action and be chosen carefully. The goal of applying cream to the face is to try to reduce irritation and dehydration.
