Sensitive skin after chemotherapy

Chemo and heavy medication are not only emotionally difficult to bear. They also have a great impact on the skin. This medication is designed to fight rapidly dividing cancer cells, but also affects some healthy, normal rapidly dividing cells (such as skin and hair cells). Many patients suffer from skin changes as a result. With the right care you can alleviate these annoying ailments.

  • Aggressive care products
    Care products with a large dose of alcohol dry out the skin even more. Also avoid other irritating chemical ingredients. Always check the ingredients list of your care products carefully!
  • Foaming soap
    Never wash the skin with regular soap. Foaming soaps contain SLS (Sodium Laureth Sulfate): a solvent that, in addition to dirt, also removes natural skin oils and can thus damage the skin barrier. This often leads to dry and flaky skin. Preferably use a mild, natural soap, both in the morning and in the evening, and rinse with lukewarm water.
  • Parabens and phthalates
    Parabens ensure that a product has a longer shelf life, but can imitate the action of natural estrogens and are said to play an important role in breast cancer. So better play it safe. Do you see terms like methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben and isobutylparaben on the ingredients list? Then it is best to ignore the product. Phthalates also have a hormone disrupting effect and are best avoided.
