Oncology Friendly Beauty & What it Means To Us

With the welcoming of October and the fall season, comes the opportunity to help bring awareness all month long to the strength of breast cancer warriors out there! Though there are many who are diagnosed or battling year-round, we are proud to come together as a community to honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month and help offer support and empower confidence to those who are courageously fighting. We are with you every step of the way! Let’s do this!

What does oncology friendly beauty mean?
Skin that is undergoing treatment can become sensitive and compromised. SkincareButik and Spa offers an array of oncology friendly products from makeup to skincare that provides a different kind of “treatment” to the skin, empowering nourishment and protection as the body goes through these medical processes. Enhance beauty and confidence in a safe and healthy way throughout this journey.

Our practice is supported by Innovative Skincare and our team has fully participated in the IsClinical CancerCare education and certification program.

It is important while going through treatments to know the best way to take care of the skin so that it is provided with nourishment, not additional change (i.e. staying away from products that promote anti-aging, lightening, etc.).

What to focus on daily:

  1. Clean. The skin will have low immunity during some of this time and can be prone to sensitivity and infection. Use a gentle cleanser twice a day to thoroughly remove makeup and debris while maintaining the health of the skin’s barrier. Do not use exfoliating products that can damage skin putting it at risk for infections.
  2. Moisturize. Combat dryness with a safe and natural moisturizer that will fortify the skin and replenish moisture that is lost during therapy.
  3. Protect. Provide the skin with additional defenses against harmful UVA/UVB rays, as it may be hypersensitive to the sun during this process so a safe and effective SPF should be worn daily.

Oncology Friendly Skincare.

Our skincare lines Osmosis, IsClinical, Rhonda Allison and Intraceuticals all consists of many products that are safe to use on skin undergoing chemo-treatments. From cleansers to moisturizers, sunscreen to masks, you can be confident in what you are feeding your skin.
