An inspiring national program called “Look Good, Feel Better” trains cosmotologists to give tips on appearance related changes (such as loss of skin color to the face and dark circles beneath your eyes) due to cancer treatment.
“Look Good, Feel Better” is a two hour workshop which includes tips on skin care, hair loss, and complimentary colors to wear during cancer treatment.
Each participating patient receives a free gift of cosmetics and life long tips on how to apply these cosmetics! The generosity of this program is beyond remarkable.
“Look Good, Feel Better” is offered locally at Sibley Memorial Hospital, Suburban Hospital, Georgetown Hospital, Life with Cancer in Fairfax, Virginia, and other area hospitals.
Eivind and Hans of Georgetown, Salon and Spa travel to many of these local hospitals to offer their free advice on applying cosmetics.
If a patient is too sick to travel to these programs, you may receive free at-home materials by calling 1-800-395-LOOK (5665).
The at-home kit includes a thirty minute video and a step by step guide.
The DVD features educational tips for understanding changes in your skin due to cancer treatment, skin care information, how to apply makeup, wig information, and pointers on head coverings.
More information about “Look Good, Feel Better” and helpful tutorials can be found on the website and through the American Cancer Society website by searching “Look Good, Feel Better”.
The next “Look Good, Feel Better” program will be offered at Georgetown Hospital 9am and Sibley Memorial Hospital at 1pm, May 23, 2016.
