Breast cancer & chemotherapy beauty



what are your best products to use while on chemo?  Iโ€™ve made an order for skincare using clean beauty but not sure of my choices??! 

help! ๐Ÿฅน

Re: Breast cancer & chemotherapy beauty

Sending you lots of love and care as you navigate this  diagnosis and chemo. Definitely check with your care team as @CorgiMommy suggested, but I recommend some soothing products below since chemo can cause rashes and dry, itchy skin (though everyone is different).  I would recommend you avoid acids or actives. Hyaluronic acid should be fine but no exfoliating acids.

You might want to check out First Aid Beauty Ultra Repairยฎ Cream Intense Hydration  and other First Aid Beauty products, or other products made for sensitive or eczema prone skin. Skinfix has a great moisturizer and also Laneige has some simple, super hydrating creams and products. 

Wishing you the best of luck with your treatment! @BOBBIGOLD 

Re: Breast cancer & chemotherapy beauty

Thank you so much! I bought daytime and nighttime products. Iโ€™m seeing my oncologist soon, Iโ€™m definitely going to ask. 

Thank you again for the suggestions and the kind words. โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ @sister13

Hi Bobby,


I would avoid any products that contain known carcinogens like petroleum based ingredients. As well as any endocrine disruptors like Phenoxyethanol.


I really like Caudalie. I recommend using the "Yuka" app to scan or search products before use.

@BOBBIGOLD wishing you a full and speedy recovery.  I also had breast cancer.  I didn't need chemo so I am unsure what are appropriate products, speak with your cancer care team.
