Skin Care Tips for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October 2015

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we’ve put together a few skin care tips to help keep your skin glowing and free from irritants.

Chemotherapy and radiation are incredibly taxing on your body, and on your skin and likely leave you feeling far from your usual gorgeous self. You probably want an extra boost in the confidence department right now, but may be worried that skin care that actually works will be too harsh and irritating for you to tolerate.

Here are 3 ways to maintaining soft, glowing skin

  1. Avoid harsh soaps that have a lot of fragrance "Fragrance" may contain chemicals that disrupt your hormones and are harsh on the skin. Try Trufora's Ultimate Facial Cleanser for a moisturizing gel formula that’s fragrance-free. Additionally, the 100% Organic Aloe Vera in the cleanser will sooth pinkness, itching, and burning.
  2. Keep your skin moisturized after your daily treatment To help with the dry, dull skin you may be experiencing from treatment Intensive Night Treatment is a skin recovery cream designed for nighttime use, but can also be used in the morning for extra dry, sensitive and irritated skin. Shea butter, 100% organic aloe, Oat Avenanthramides and multiple forms of hyaluronic acid are just some of the ingredients that help restore your skin’s health. For renewing your skin, try the 2 Piece Treatment System: Day & Night Serums. Protect your face from pollutants and radiation with the Day Serum, while the Night Serum rejuvenates the skin after a long day.
  3. Protect your skin from UV rays with sunscreen After treatment, your skin may become more sensitive to the sun. A great way to prevent burning is with Titanium Day Cream SPF 30.

Trufora's line of skincare products have all been formulated with the highest degree of care in selecting ingredients that are non-irritating, safe, and effective.

Sadie Murray of KCRA News NBC Sacramento recommends Trufora as one of her favorite skin care lines for Breast Cancer patients and survivors:

"Trufora is a pure, chemical-free skincare line that is perfect if you're going through any sort of radiation or chemo. Chemical-free, Trufora, is the way to go because you don't need the added different toxins and things like that in your body. I love Trufora."
