Sunglasses are very good at blocking the sun’s ultraviolet rays and protecting the skin around the eyes. Avoid direct sunlight by limiting your movements to the early morning and late afternoon, and walking on the shadier sides of the streets. All of these are small, insignificant details that many people overlook.
6 Information Regarding Skin Care After Radiation Treatment
As we commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I couldn’t help but think of women whose skin changed as a result of radiation and chemotherapy and who are unsure what to do…the good news is that most skin issues are temporary and easy to repair. Anything proactive that you can do to make yourself feel better.
You should take extra care of your skin during this period of transition. First, consult your doctor about which lotions, soaps, deodorants, sunscreen, cream, or perfume you should use around the treatment area. A light sprinkling of cornstarch can help itchy or irritated areas, but filmy skin products can make treatment more difficult.
A soft soap, such as Dove, may be used to wash your face or treatment area. Use just warm water and your hands to wash; this is more gentle. Using a soft cotton towel, gently pat dry. Scrub, itch, or shave treated skin is not recommended. Gently wipe your face with a smooth, fluffy cotton ball soaked in non-alcohol toner. Do you see a pattern here? All is done in a gentle manner to avoid causing discomfort.
Consult your doctor about which UVA/UVB sunscreen to purchase. A sunscreen with an SPF of 15 is a healthy starting point. After applying sunscreen, wait a few minutes for it to penetrate completely (which many of us, including myself, do not do!) before applying any moisturiser. Apply a small amount of moisturiser to your face and gently pat it in place. If you have oily skin, it can become dry or flaky as a result of your chemotherapy; use a moisturiser several times a day to reduce the effects, but consult with your doctor first.
Before adding something to the treatment area, make sure you wash your hands. We all know that we have bacteria on our hands, and you don’t want to spread it on your skin. It has the potential to cause infection. Close the tops of your jars tightly to keep airborne bacteria and germs out of your skin care.
