Oncology cosmetics is a specialized branch of the cosmetics industry that focuses on skin care for people who have been diagnosed with cancer, so that it is safe and effective, and also helps improve the self-esteem of people with cancer.
One of the main problems that people with cancer face is hair loss due to chemotherapy. Oncology cosmetics offers products such as wigs and turbans to help people cover their heads and feel more confident.
The skin of people who have been or are being treated for cancer is generally more sensitive due to the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
Oncology cosmetics includes a variety of products, such as moisturizers, sunscreens, shampoos and conditioners, makeup that helps hide scars and spots caused by treatment, and nail and hair care products, as well as products to treat scaly skin and blisters caused by radiation therapy.
Oncology cosmetics offers services such as temporary makeup to cover scars and changes in skin color caused by cancer treatment. Additionally, there are also aesthetic services, such as manicures and pedicures.
In general, oncology cosmetics is a way to support people facing a cancer diagnosis and help them deal with the changes in their physical appearance caused by treatment.
