Skin Issues: The "Other" Battle You May Fight While Battling Cancer

HFS Hand-Foot Syndrome from Chemo

The effects that cancer treatment can have on a person’s skin have long been overlooked. But patients who have suffered through skin rashes and burns will be glad to know that a growing trend in treating cancer focuses on curing both the disease and helping patients maintain their self-esteem and quality of life. A new movement combining oncology and dermatology aims to address both the disease and the potentially negative consequences that rashes, burns and blemishes can produce. “For obvious reasons, the skin, hair, and nails have not been the topmost concerns in oncology — the most important goal is to treat and cure the cancer,” says Mario Lacouture, M.D., who specializes in dermatologic conditions that result from cancer treatments. “But skin side effects can affect patients' sense of self and their interactions with others. These side effects can lead to costly treatments, affect overall health, and perhaps most significantly, they may require that anticancer treatments be reduced or stopped altogether.”

TIPS FOR MANAGING SKIN ISSUES

Upon receiving a cancer diagnosis, patients concerned about the potential impact that treatment may have on their skin should discuss their options with their physicians. After initiating such discussions, men and women being treated for cancer can take additional steps to maintain their appearance and quality of life both during and after treatment.

• Alter your skin care routine. Upon receiving a cancer diagnosis, patients must make FaceComboSlatea host of lifestyle adjustments to many things, including to their skin care routines. Intense skin rashes and burns are common side effects of chemotherapy and radiation, and certain side effects are actually an indicator that the treatment is working. While such consequences can affect patients’ self-image, these side effects are entirely manageable.

“What many patients do not realize is that most dermatologic side effects are manageable, allowing people to maintain their quality of life and continue their cancer treatments,” says Lacouture.

• Embrace antioxidants. Often touted as miracle ingredients in a host of foods, antioxidants can be found beyond the dinner table as well.  Antioxidants protect skin by limiting the production of free radicals, which can damage skin cells.  One of the most promising antioxidants is astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant that is only now beginning to receive widespread recognition for its restorative properties.  While astaxanthin and other antioxidants can relieve the pain and inflammation in the skin that cancer patients often feel, they also can help those suffering from less severe, non-cancer related skin problems, such as sunburn, rosacea, dry skin and UV damage.

ak2013045_090_DELIVERY• Find the right skin care. Skin damage is an often overlooked side effect of cancer treatment. But cancer patients should know that side effects like skin rashes and burns are manageable and don’t have to negatively impact self-image or quality of life.  In fact, a specialty line of skin care has been created specifically to meet the unique needs of people battling cancer.

Cancer survivor Lindy Snider worked with dermatologists, oncologists, nurses, and skin care formulators to address the issue, developing Lindi Skin (www.lindiskin.com), a collection of skin care products designed specifically for individuals undergoing treatment for cancer and related disorders. Combining state-of-the-art technology with innovative natural ingredients, Snider and her team designed an exclusive formulation of concentrated botanicals, the LSA Complex®, that delivers FWashFSerumBowlhigh levels of beneficial antioxidants like astaxanthin to the skin. Lindi Skin products include a host of botanical extracts boasting anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral properties, while providing a soothing and gentle solution even for those patients with especially sensitive skin.

Lindi Skin's products are clinically proven to soothe and alleviate common skin-related side effects like dry, itchy skin, dermatitis, rash, and hand-foot syndrome.  Lindi Skin also provides revolutionary Skin Coolers that instantly cool painful radiation burns while delivering aloe & green tea to encourage a moist healing environment for skin damaged by radiation.  The Lindi Skin website offers in-depth information about skin care during cancer treatment as well as tools to help you select the proper skin care items.

Users have come to rely on Lindi Skin as they battle cancer and the side effects of cancer treatment.  “Tarceva, the medication I take for lung cancer, has played havoc with my skin, which has become unbelievably dry and sensitive,” says Phyllis of Coral Gables, FL. “(Lindi Skin) products are the only ones I can use on my face and body. They actually soothe, whereas all others create a burning sensation.”

    I can't say enough nice things about your product. My skin was so painful from radiation that I thought we'd have to stop treatments, but the Balm and the Cooler Roll made my skin "normal" again in just a few days.

  • Brenda

    This product was recommended to me when I started chemo for breast cancer. While I didn't feel so feminine going through all the surgeries and chemo, it was so wonderful to hear all the complements on my complexion. Thank you for the boost when I needed it most

  • TB ABL

    I would not leave my home. My wife ordered Lindi
    products for me. My skin started healing, looking better.Love this products

  • Connie

    I can't even begin to describe how amazing these things feel on a radiation burn. I almost cried because it was some much needed relief.

  • DBJ

    I use this every morning and every evening along with the face wash and lavender serum. My skin has never looked so good! Everyone was surprised how great my skin look going through chemotherapy. I could not of lived without it!!! Will continue to use it after treatment is completed

  • MJK

    My skin is very sensitive to any perfumes or harsh chemicals-I am allergic to perfume even when others wear it. So it has been a Godsend to find Lindi face products-if they are safe and effective for vulnerable radiated skin they must be perfect for mine-and it is true. thank you for making Lindi Skin for all of us

  • Vivian

    This product was recommended to me by a sister survivor/nurse. I ordered it online through the website as there aren't any local outlets close to me. I am extremely happy and satisfied with the proformance of this product. I use it after radiation treatments and it immediately relieves the burn. I have recommended this product to my radiation oncologist and I hope that they can recommend it to others also.

    I have always had sensitive skin that breaks out easily. When I started chemo about 6 weeks ago, I suffered from severe dry skin and folliculitis. This moisturizer has helped get rid of my dry skin and clear up my folliculitis without leaving me with greasy skin and more breakouts. The scent is refreshing to boot.

  • Fighter

    With my cancer treatments my skin became so very dry until I started using Lindi products, they lavender serum has made. My skin so soft and silky. Love all the products

  • Seydou

    All I can say is that it does work. I could notice the denferifce in a few days. The skin looks smoother and healthy. I wasn't sure at first, but then people started asking me what I had done because my skin looked so good. It is surprising to find a product that actually works and I have tried many, believe me, all sorts of makes and prices.

  • Fran

    I wanted to thank you for all the products! I used most of it over the weekend, and I loved it! I don't know how much this all costs, but I think I'm hooked! I used that Soothing Balm on my heels and it works immediately! Also the Face Serum - I put it on areas of my face and it heals almost overnight. Lindi Skin isnt just for cancer patients, it's for anyone. I really think the line belongs in the cosmetic section of Bloomingdales/Neiman Marcus.

  • Pam

    I loved how the face moisturizer made my skin feel like velvet. Worth every penny. Thank you.

  • JC

    I used the Soothing Balm for the burns I developed during radiation for breast cancer. I had been using the gel that was prescribed by my doctor and it really wasn't doing anything to soothe my burns, but I kept using it up until two weeks before I was done. Finally, I got to the point where I couldn't take it anymore so I decided to try this. I bought it, along with the Cooler Roll and body wash. The relief from this product was IMMEDIATE. I applied it for the first time in a bathroom stall of a restaurant because that is where I went after leaving the store where I purchased it. It was quite comical, me trying to maneuver around in a small stall trying to apply the balm to all the areas where I had burns, but after the relief I had after applying it to the burn that hurt the most, I HAD to apply it to the rest. I used it everyday after treatment and the burns never bothered me again. I still have some left and continue to use it even though my skin has returned to normal. This product is AWESOME and I highly recommend it. The only thing that would have improved my experience is if it was sold in more than one place in Vegas, where I live. Your site has two other locations listed but I called and they no longer carry it. I want to thank you for creating this product, it really made a difference for me! I told my radiation oncologist that he should really make it a point to discuss Lindi Skin Care with his patients.

    I would like to express my extreme satisfaction with using the Lindi Skin Cooler Rolls and Cooler Pads. As the Nurse Coordinator for the Department of Radiation Oncology at a University Hospital, I have used these two products successfully with patients undergoing external beam radiation. Most of the patients I have offered these products to have expressed great relief from their symptoms of burning and the tenderness in the treatment areas. We have had such great success with Lindi Skin products that we were able to convince the purchasing department to allow us to order these directly for our patients.
