Oncological patients-A trusted medical grade skincare line

Cancer is one of the most common diseases among the population. By the end of 2020 more than 19 million cases of cancer were diagnosed in the world. When this disease is detected the life of the patients and the people that surround them changes radically.

Cancer patients not only have to contend with external, environmental factors that can damage their skin, but they must also face aggressive cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation. While both of these treatments are extremely effective in ridding the body of dangerous cancer cells, they also wreak havoc on the skin of a cancer patient. Often times, the condition of a cancer patient's skin is not a top priority; however, cancer treatments oftentimes damage skin cells, causing: Sores and Thinning Skin

Extreme dryness

  • Extreme dryness

  • Sores and Thinning Skin

  • Sensitivity to solar radiation

  • Paleness (sallow colouring)

  • Irritation (Pruritus)

  • Appearance of hyperpigmentation.

If you are in this battle, you are not alone. Sands Advanced Skincare along with your doctor can help with this delicate situation and advise the best way to care your skin.

Current and past cancer patients often require additional reassurance that products are safe for them to use, and understandably so. We would like to share this suggested regimen for oncological patients.
