As you go through your cancer treatment, you may notice changes in the texture or color of your skin. Chemotherapy can cause you to lose your hair. These changes are usually temporary, but feeling like you don't look like yourself can add extra stress during treatment.
When faced with a cancer diagnosis, learning a few new make-up techniques can make you feel better and give you more confidence while going through treatment. But check with your cancer care team before using any new skin care products, especially if you are still receiving treatment or if you have had a skin reaction.
Here are some tips to help.
Wash your hands before cleaning your skin and applying makeup to your face.
Clean your face first - depending on your skin type, start by using any of Cher-Mere’s daily facial cleansers, toners, scrubs, moisturizers and masks, all enriched with natural ingredients that are gentle on your skin. These include the moringa face wash, scrub and mask which is ideal for all skin types.
Apply your makeup - pat on concealer to hide reddish or dark areas. Then apply a warm tone foundation, blending into your neck for a natural look. Then use a powder blush for long lasting color, applying blush upwards from cheek to hair line.
Add color to your lips – apply natural lip balm (Cher-Mere has three flavours, fruity, luscious and exotic) before outlining and filling in your lips with a lip brush. This will help keep your lips moist to avoid chapping.
