Skincare Advice for Chronic Leukaemia Skin

Hi folks,


I’m looking for some skin care advice. At the moment, this is my current skin care routine:
Cleanse Murad Clarifying Cleanser
Thayers original toner
Inky list caffeine eye cream
Origins oil free energy boosting gel moisturizer

La Roche-Passay 60 SPF 



Bioderma makeup remover cloth 
Biotherm Biosource softening foaming cleanser
Andalou Floral Toner (Rose stem cells) - I was using Ordinary Glycolic Acid Toner but it was a bit too harsh for daily use and I switched two weeks ago 
Murad hydro-dynamic quenching essence
Inky list hyaluronic acid
Bare minerals age defense eye cream
Andalou night repair cream age defying


I use sheet masks that are hydrating 1-2 times a week. 


And usually Dr Dennis Gross extra strength daily peel once a week but I’ve paused it for right now.


I was recently diagnosed with chronic leukaemia - I’m receiving excellent treatment and support. I’ve been on my new medication for 4 months now (life long meds) and I’m noticing a huge change in my skin. I’ve had some minor breakouts, it’s a bit dryer, and I have itchy blotchy red skin on my cheeks with bumps as of late. I’m worried I may have products that are making this worse but I don’t know.


I know I likely need to change my skin care routine and am open to any and all suggestions: from cleansers, toners, serums, to moisturizers. If I’m missing something in my routine that would help please suggest it!

I’m in my mid 30s, I do get occasional hormonal breakouts which is just a joy. My focus is happy skin now, and prioritizing those products to best effect my skin for tomorrow.


I really appreciate the help!
