Chemotherapy and radiation can change your skin – make it dry, itchy, flaky or irritated. A few simple steps in the morning and at night can help you look healthier.

Sunscreen isn’t only for the sand and slopes, it’s for every day* – especially during chemotherapy, which can cause sun exposure-related skin reactions. Sunburns often occur on ears, lips, back of neck, and arms. A spray-on sunscreen makes it easier to reach a thinning hairline. Moisturizing sunscreens help out if skin is dry. Doctors warn against tanning during treatment, so if this look is important to you, ask your doctor if you can use a men’s self-tanning cream or bronzer instead.

*Sunscreen use should be discussed with your doctor. Sunscreen and other products should not be used on radiation treatment areas. Be sure to consult with your doctor before using any new skin products during treatment.
