NeoGenesis Products for Chemotherapy Side Effects
Chemotherapy treatments often cause skin issues. Chemotherapy works by damaging rapidly dividing cells, the key trait of cancer cells. In the process of chemotherapy, healthy cells that are also rapidly dividing, such as skin cells, are also damaged. Because the chemical is widespread throughout the body, the damage to the skin may also be widespread. Skin may become dry, itchy, darken, blister or peel. A rash may also develop or you may become more photosensitive, causing the skin to sunburn easily. Even the nails may turn dark and crack, and the cuticles may be painful.
Recovery serum by NeoGenesis is recommended after chemotherapy to help restore homeostasis in the skin and in the nail beds. Recovery is abundant in patented stem cell molecules that deliver all the nutrients needed to strengthen and repair the skin.
Gently cleanse the skin with the NeoGenesis Cleanser. Spray a light mist of Moisturizing Mist to the areas that are affected. Next, apply Recovery on the areas. Do this twice daily and then follow Recovery with Barrier Renewal Cream or Intensive Moisturizer to restore the barrier and provide much needed hydration to the skin.
Moisturizing Mist may be used to soothe the skin throughout the day, as needed.
Simple topical application of these products should help mitigate redness, irritation, and pain.
By applying these products to the cuticle and skin surrounding your nails, it may help to alleviate unsightly changes in the appearance of your nails.
