Oncology cosmetics which ones to recommend

In the world of dermocosmetics, the most important question we ask is: What oncology cosmetics can we recommend to patients who are going through treatment? This is a crucial aspect. Indeed, cancer treatments can have a significant impact on the skin and well-being of our patients.

When we are dealing with patients who are battling cancer, it is essential to recommend dermocosmetic products specifically designed to meet the needs of sensitive, reactive, and sensitized skin.

Which oncology cosmetics to recommend, what to watch out for

1. Intense and soothing hydration:

Cancer treatments can often cause dryness and dehydration of the skin.

The skin of cancer patients may become more sensitive to the sun due to treatments. He recommends broad-spectrum sunscreens with high sun protection factor (SPF 30 or higher) that are gentle on the skin and do not clog pores.

3. Gentle cleansing:

Suggest cleansers without soap or harsh chemicals that may further irritate sensitized skin. Products with colloidal oat or chamomile extracts are great for gently cleansing without compromising the skin barrier. Oncos Gentle Cleanser is designed for sensitive skin stressed by cancer therapies. It gently cleanses and also contains the natural active ingredient derived from Sichuan pepper, which combats itchiness and is a powerful soothing and calming agent.

This product has a light and gentle texture and is optimal for soothing and softening the skin without making it greasy. Enriched with a natural active ingredient from Sichuan pepper, it offers effective soothing and calming action. It also deeply nourishes the skin and reduces uncomfortable skin flaking. It is also particularly good for relieving itchy and scalp burns, both in the presence of hair and hairiness.

5. Safe and natural make-up:

For patients who wish to use make-up during treatment, suggest make-up products that are natural and free of potentially irritating ingredients such as perfumes and artificial dyes. Look for brands that offer foundations and concealers suitable for sensitive skin. Oncos’ BB Cream is suitable for all skin types and skin tones. The BB Cream product is a soft emulsion that not only performs the typical tasks of a day cream but also makes the skin more even and radiant by camouflaging blemishes and imperfections.

Always remember to encourage patients to consult their oncologist or dermatologist before starting any new skin care regimen during cancer therapies. In addition to recommending the right products, it is critical to offer emotional support and practical information to help patients manage the changes in their skin during this sensitive period.
