Oncological treatments usually cause adverse effects and weaken the skin of the entire body, leaving it dry, sensitive and accelerating its aging. At GGcare we pay special attention to skin care during this stage. Below, we provide you with five essential points on how to care for your skin during cancer treatment .
Skin care during cancer treatment
Try to ALWAYS keep your body and skin hydrated. Drink plenty of water and use moisturizing and nourishing natural cosmetics formulated specifically for sensitive skin. Our Regenerating Night Cream , for example, provides essential nutrients for skin repair and maximum hydration overnight.
Oncological treatments increase sensitivity to the sun. Therefore, it is necessary to protect yourself daily with sunscreen with a minimum SPF 20. We recommend the colored, illuminating moisturizing cream to apply to the face every day. It contains a Sun Protection Factor of 20 and a light touch of color that improves paleness, providing a healthier appearance. Although it is advisable to wear protective clothing and avoid direct exposure to the sun, in case of a lot of exposure, facial and body dermal protection should be HIGH or VERY HIGH.

- Gentle cleaning:
Use gentle, natural cleansing soaps that do not contain harsh chemicals. We, at GGcare, use the Purifying Soapy Shower Oil . It is a natural soap in oil format and with a neutral pH that, in addition to deeply cleansing the skin, hydrates and softens it. To remove it, it is advisable to use warm water and dry gently with a cotton towel.
- Soothe irritation:
Fight skin irritation and inflammation with natural products containing soothing ingredients. The Soothing Body Cream helps dry, irritated or itchy areas quickly calm down thanks to ingredients such as Indian frankincense and bisabolol (chamomile extract).

- ALWAYS consult professionals and your healthcare team:
During the oncological process, it is essential to ask and seek advice from professionals and, above all, your medical team.
Skin care during cancer treatment is crucial for well-being. Maintaining the body's hydration, applying sun protection and using natural cosmetics to hydrate, cleanse and soothe the skin can minimize the dermal side effects of oncological treatments. Remember: It is important to consult with your healthcare team to resolve any questions that may arise regarding treatment or side effect care.
