Cancer patients deal with many different skin conditions due to the disease itself, treatments they receive and medications they take. The skin is extremely compromised. Looking at skin care labels can be daunting for the esthetician on a daily basis. However, we need to be extremely careful when dealing with someone undergoing treatment to make sure we are not adding ingredients that may cause further irritation or harm. Anthocyanins, polyphenols and flavonoids are important ingredients that are increasingly used in today’s skin care. There are many studies that show their positive benefits for skins challenged with cancer and other health issues. These three types of extractions are considered the “mega extract” from fruits and plants of certain colors. They are the “heart” of the key molecules that contain the specialized antioxidants from a particular fruit or plant. The deeper the color of the plant, the stronger the antioxidant power. These key molecules are antioxidants that a plant uses to protect itself from UV radiation, fungal infections, environmental stress and even climates with extreme temperatures and conditions. If these are able to protect the plant, imagine how exciting it is to transfer the same concept to the skin care of someone undergoing treatment and the skin conditions that come with it. These conditions may include, but are not limited to the following: dry, itchy, rash, photosensitive, immune compromised, pustules/ papules and hyperpigmentation.
Lana Oncospa has partnered with Hale and Hush to care for Sensitive Skin and Health-Challenged Skin.
FOR SENSITIVE SKIN
Aging, common allergies and household chemicals, plus the environment and stress can leave skin dry and irritated, making it difficult for skin to regenerate and repair.
FOR HEALTH-CHALLENGED SKIN®
Medical treatments and medications can deplete the skin of essential nutrients, leaving it dry and irritated, and can debilitate vital functions of collagen production, cell regeneration, and repair.
