Women and men undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatments are re-learning how to take care of their skin and are experiencing a “new normal” through the oncology process. When a patient is diagnosed with cancer, they can feel as if they are losing control of many aspects of their life. Licensed Providers need to develop patience when working with oncology patients. Compassion is key to supporting them and their new and on-going skin care needs. The focus of any skin therapy treatment is to restore the skin's integrity so it can withstand oncology treatments. What you need to know about your or your client’s skin as they are undergoing chemotherapy or radiation. Chemotherapy can cause several different skin changes generally within 3 weeks of the first treatment. The skin may exhibit changes that include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Skin dehydration

  • Hyperpigmentation (from anti-tumor antibodies)

  • Toxicity

  • Photo-sensitivity (from UVR)

  • Flushing

  • Rash

  • Allergies

  • Sensitivities to common skin care ingredients

  • Itching

  • Scaling

  • Flaking

  • Tight/taught feeling skin

  • Inflammatory reaction to extreme weather conditions (especially cold)

  • and other dermatological reactions.

Avoid soaps, perfumed products, ingredients, sodium laurel sulfates, detergents, highly scented skin care, over the counter products without professional guidance, hot water, mechanical exfoliants, and chemical peels. GlyMed Plus is helping breast cancer survivors by donating GlyMed Plus professional products during the rehabilitation of the skin after the harsh effects of cancer treatment. This program is called Marie’s Gift, in honor of Christine Heathman’s Aunt, Marie Smith Chakirian. Marie passed away in September 1996 but left a legacy of courage for cancer survivors everywhere, including the co-founding of Reach to Recovery sponsored by the American Cancer Society. In addition, GlyMed Plus is committed to carrying on Marie’s legacy by assisting breast cancer survivors through the Women Beyond Cancer Foundation. Pam Cofer, vice president of Journey Beyond Breast Cancer, stated, “Christine and my paths first crossed in 1998 while I was working on an idea for an organization that would be able to give cancer survivors assistance beyond the abilities of local support groups.” From the onset, Christine’s passion and understanding of what women with cancer endure were very insightful. Marie’s Gift is an incredible collection of GlyMed Plus facial products especially well suited for cancer patients and is given at no charge to them. This personalized GlyMed Plus skin care system is designed to Cleanse, Treat, Balance and Protect to optimize the inner youth synergy of your skin while undergoing chemo/radiation therapy. Because chemotherapy and radiation cancer therapy create special circumstances for your skin, specific products have been selected to nourish, equalize, and help repair at the cellular level. What’s included in Marie’s Gift:

  • Mega-Purifying Cleanser

  • Eye Calm

  • Daily Repair Mega-Moisture Cream

  • Ultra-Hydrating Lip Balm

  • Photo-Age Sunscreen 30+
