Chemo Make-Up Guide

Look Good…Feel Better!

OCTOBER IS BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH! ONE  WAY TO LOOK  GREAT AND FEEL BETTER IS WITH GREAT MAKE-UP. OUR MAKE-UP GUIDE FROM BEAUTE MINERAL CAN HELP!

Getting a diagnosis of Breast Cancer or any kind of cancer for that matter is traumatizing.  Skin can become taunt, dry and patchy. We all know that when we look good, we feel good about ourselves, even when we might feel like our insides are on fire. Sometimes, just a little lip stick and a little blush can help pull us up out of the pit of despair.

We have invited a fabulous skincare line Beauté Minéral a makeup company that uses simple, pure, luxurious organic mineral cosmetics that are formulated with all skin types in mind, particularly sensitive,  dry, oily and just plain finicky skin to provide a guide to mineral make-up. Just click the links below and have fun learning about all things that are Beauté Minéral!

During chemotherapy and radiation  skin becomes sensitive  and should be treated gently during this time.  The key is to keep skin as moist as possible during chemotheraphy treatment and try to avoid raw and broken skin. Looking Good, helps you feel better!
