Skin Care Considerations for Survivorship

     Pink Ribbon Survivors Network is fortunate to feature a series of blog articles from professional skincare specialist, Tara Germain, M.Ed, L.E., L.M.T. who advises clients at Simply Moore Skin Care and Make up Studio in the Cherry Creek North section of Denver, CO.  This is the first article written by Tara which utilizes her expertise to advise Survivors as to skin care and make up techniques.

     Treating cancer with chemotherapy helps to diminish cancer cells, but can also cause many unwanted side effects such as hair loss, dry/irritated skin, uneven complexion, and brittle nails.  Most people think of dry skin as just a cosmetic inconvenience, but severely dry skin can lead to inflammation and the disruption of the skin's protective function which can lead to infection.  Rather than waiting to address symptoms until after treatment starts, patients can take steps to minimize skin problems throughout treatment.
