Unfortunately, radiation injures or kills healthy cells as well as cancer cells in the treated area. Repeated radiation exposure causes an imbalance in tissue damage and repair so that exposed skin is damaged faster than it can repair itself. Even after continual moisturising it can become sensitive, burnt, blistered, peeling and very uncomfortable. We have included in our Kit for Cancer case a tube of Thursday Plantation Aloe Vera Gel, a natural moisturiser and emollient extracted from the Aloe vera plant. Free from mineral oils, lauryl sulphates, synthetic fragrances and animal derived ingredients.
Make sure you keep your Aloe Vera Gel in the fridge and the cool gel will be an awesome relief for skin that is hot and hurts. We know that irritated skin is uncomfortable and this gel will just aid in the repair and relief. Thursday Plantation Aloe Vera Gel is an essential to have in all medicine cabinets.
At all times follow your medical team’s advice on what is best for you.
