Add sensitive skin to the long list of side effects happening during treatment.

Relieving side effects is an important part of cancer care and treatment. Being kind to your skin is one of the more important routines to adopt during treatment for both radiation and chemotherapy. Skin is an organ and a barrier to fluid loss; any time it is compromised by a burn or sunburn and can struggle to maintain proper hydration levels. Showers are preferable to baths. Water should be warm rather than hot to avoid any further irritation.

When you are on chemo, your skin cells don’t replace themselves like they normally would and your skin becomes fragile and dry,

Included in Kit forCancer case are skin products to help you on your way.
