Dry skin is the result of many factors, but for cancer patients, treatment is often the cause of dry skin. This is because normally, your skin cells are constantly renewing themselves by dividing rapidly in the deep layers and sloughing off the old cells at the surface. But, if you’re undergoing treatment, both chemotherapy and radiation can disrupt this process, resulting in dry skin and other skin reactions. While dry skin may also be itchy, some patients experience itchy skin that is not related to dryness. That itching sensation can be caused by the cancer treatment or by the cancer itself. Cancers that involve the skin or have spread to the skin, such as malignant melanoma, leukemia and lymphoma, commonly cause itching. Cancer treatments affect ones’ skin’s natural PH balance, as the amount of oil produced by the oil glands diminishes considerably, making your skin feel extra dry and
irritated. Patients are told to choose a skin care line with products formulated for sensitive skin, as well as fragrance free and alcohol free. Products rich in anti-oxidants and natural trace minerals are ideal. Many of the aftercare products are pharmaceutical or chemical based which can exasperate the issue. LAFACE products are not. We advise one to avoid products that
contain retinol and chemicals of any kind. Refrain from using face soap when cleansing your skin and replace it with a gentle cleansing emulsion instead.
