Amid the many physical transformations and emotional burdens that accompany a cancer diagnosis, treatments such as radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and hormone therapy can cause dry skin, itchiness and increased sensitivity to the sun.
According to Bernice Kwong, a clinical associate professor of dermatology at Stanford University, "Studies show skin conditions are the most unexpected side effect of (cancer) treatment."
Our Cancer Pamper-Me package for women contains clean, toxin-free and ethically-sourced beauty products designed to help you feel radiant and uplifted while undergoing cancer treatment.
The Natural Deoderant can be used post-surgery - with your doctor's consent and depending on the area and extent of scarring - without irritating or damaging the skin. The Highlighter will give you a natural, sun-kissed glow - something we all need, but especially when we're suffering with extreme fatigue - while the deliciously-scented Perfume will uplift you and should (thanks to the active ingredient in ginger, gingerol) help to alleviate some of the nausea that often accompanies chemotherapy.
Of course we are open to suggestions about how to improve our cancer care offering, so please feel free to reach out to us directly on [email protected] or contact our customer services team directly using our on-site chat messenger.
Secret Skin was founded by Anisha Oberoi in October 2020 as a digital discovery platform for safe and affordable beauty and personal care in the MENA region.
“Secret Skin’s story is my story. In 2010 I was diagnosed with an aggressive form of Breast Cancer. At the time, I struggled to find beauty products that were safe, toxin-free and wouldn’t impact my fertility or disrupt my hormones. My frustration became the inspiration to launch a brand that women could trust, and one that would have a positive impact on the world.
"I created Secret Skin with the intention of curating award-winning global brands for an inclusive, gender-neutral community of socially responsible beauty consumers, who also love the ecosystem enough to fiercely protect it.
"With Secret Skin, customers can support small sustainable businesses, provide microeconomies to communities that wild-harvest the ingredients, reduce their carbon footprint and give back to the community. Our mission is to raise awareness of womens’ health and mindful consumption through the narrative of Clean Beauty. Love Yourself. Protect the Planet. Shop Consciously."
