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.
During treatment, when you are at risk of bleeding and infection, your doctor may suggest that you switch to an electric razor to prevent potential cuts. Warm skin first with water or hot towel and rinse afterward with cool water. Avoid alcohol, menthol or strong fragrance. If you feel you must use a manual razor (discuss with your doctor first): keep it sharp, always rinse after use, and shake off excess water without wiping. Soften hair follicles with shave gel, leaving it on your face for about one minute before the first stroke.
