Look Good—Feel Better Program Helps Women With Physical Side Effects of Cancer Treatment

Look Good … Feel Better is a free, two-hour workshop that teaches women in active cancer treatment simple beauty techniques for skin care, makeup application and coping with hair loss.  Participants receive a complimentary bag of makeup from leading cosmetic companies to use in the session and at home.  Trained beauty professionals help with dealing with the physical side effects that often happen during treatment.
Look Good … Feel Better is offered through a partnership of the American Cancer Society, the Personal Care Products Council and the National Cosmetology Association.
The upcoming sessions scheduled at Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital from 10 a.m. to Noon in the hospital conference room are: Wed., Jan. 23; Wed., Mar. 6; Wed., June 5; Wed., Sept. 4  and Wed., Dec. 4. 2013.  Please call Kim Thorwegen from The American Cancer Society at 314-286-8172 or 800-489-9730, ext 8172.
Look Good … Feel Better is as much about women regaining a positive self-image and confidence as it is about appearance. Physical changes that are discussed may include dry skin, loss of eyebrows and eyelashes, wig care, creating a turban and more.  Patients enjoy the opportunity to spend time in a relaxed, non-medical setting with others in the same situation.
