BCA - is for everyday - try these simple solutions to chemotherapy dried skin

Hi ya Gorgeous,
October is known for being an awareness month for breast cancer. Though, in reality, the disease is affecting an estimated 266,120 women in the United States will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer, and 63,960 women will be diagnosed with in situ breast cancer.

So that means that right now, there is a woman somewhere in the world who is experiencing chemotherapy and radiation therapy to help her heal and survive the disease.

I've got a few simple recommendations to help you help her!

A sensitive and listening ear is always appropriate - it's really harder than you know to experience the fatigue, brain fog, nausea with an extended period of sick belly and dry skin. Very thin, dry skin from the treatments!

Chemotherapy treated skin needs gentle wash and gentle lasting moisture and it's key to keep chemicals in products to a minimum.

In the photo: consider using Dove micellar wash bars for gentle cleansing and the Dove repairing balm from their DermaSeries collection.  If you would like to go all organic in a natural product, you can't beat the moisturizing power of organic coconut oil!  LouAna is one of my favorite brands and I get it at the Walmart or Amazon.  For body odor, consider switching to a natural mineral based spray, like Saje.

These little changes could make a big difference in the comfort of the lady surviving cancer and gearing up to kick it's butt!
