While you may not have control over the medical aspects of your treatment, there are steps you can take to alleviate and heal the discomfort caused by chemotherapy skin.

Chemotherapy Skin Healing Strategies

Chemotherapy works by targeting rapidly dividing cells in the body, which includes cancer cells.

Unfortunately, this also affects healthy cells, including those responsible for maintaining your skin’s health.

The decrease in oil production and overall skin dryness is often attributed to the reduction in estrogen production during treatment.

Here are some strategies to help you manage and heal chemo-induced skin irritation:

1. Gentle Cleansing: One of the first steps in caring for your skin during chemotherapy is to switch to gentle, natural cleansers.
These cleansers should be free from harsh chemicals, such as sodium laurel sulfate (SLS) and other irritants.
Belegenza’s IlLustrious Shampoo & Cleanser is an excellent choice, as it features aloe as its primary ingredient.
Aloe helps soothe your skin while effectively cleansing away synthetic and cosmetic build-up, allowing premium botanicals and extracts to moisturize and revitalize your skin.

2. Nourishing Moisturizer: Opt for a moisturizer that is not only natural but also gentle and packed with nourishing ingredients.
Belegenza’s TimeLess Skin Moisturizer, formulated with food-grade ingredients, can work wonders for your skin.
These nutrients supercharge your skin’s ability to heal and balance itself, leading to a noticeable improvement in texture and radiance over time.

3. Lukewarm Water: When taking baths or showers, make sure to use lukewarm water instead of hot water.
Hot water can be particularly harsh on your skin and may strip away its natural oils, exacerbating dryness.

4. Nutrient-Rich Diet: Your skin’s health starts from within.
Maintaining a nutrient-dense diet is essential for your overall well-being, and it can also support your skin’s healing process.
Consider incorporating foods rich in collagen-building nutrients, such as nuts, leafy greens,  & citrus fruits.
These nutrients can aid in skin repair and rejuvenation.
Protein sources like lean meats, beans, fish, eggs, and dairy, as well as nutrient-packed fruits and vegetables, provide essential vitamins and minerals like vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin B5, vitamin B12, folate, zinc, and niacin. Reducing your intake of refined sugars is also recommended.
Additionally, consume healthy fats like coconut, olive, and flaxseed oil to help keep your skin moisturized from within.

5. Stay Hydrated: Proper hydration is essential for maintaining healthy skin. When your body is adequately hydrated, your skin looks smoother, plumper, and more radiant.
Hydration also helps prevent dryness and maintains skin elasticity.
