Keeping your skin moist using a moisturiser helps to stop your skin losing water and creates a protective layer. Caring for your skin is especially important if you have lymphoedema. Any skin breaks can make you more likely to get an infection.

Moisturise your skin at least once a day with a good skin cream and avoid cuts, splits, and abrasions. This is because injury or infection can cause more damage to the lymphatic system in the area.

To give your hands some extra love we have added a super-smooth ThankYou hand cream to our Kit for Cancer case to nourish and hydrate your hands. It’s made from ingredients derived from nature it soothes seriously dry hands. No SLS, SLES, EDTA or Parabens.
