I have been speaking with many other TNBC survivors and have been feeling comforted to know that I am not alone. I feel empowered to stay positive and keep smiling.
My friend suggested I write a letter to the Universe thanking it three times for something. I have thanked the Universe for keeping me well and healthy and being cured of canSer. I know it’s a big ask but I am hoping the Universe will hear me.
Back to researching and working. I gratefully received some beauty products from Jennifer Young who has a beauty range for healthy people and a range specifically for cancer survivors. Those that are going through chemo and beyond. Our skin suffer, become s sensitive and hair is lost. Sometimes things return to normal but sometimes the sensitivity continues. It is imperative to people like us to look and feel good during such a low time.
The skin care products that Jennifer kindly sent me were a full facial range. I have been using them since Sunday and I already have noticed how soft my skin feels. The smell is divine and I would almost consider never changing back to anything else! I really like both serums for the eyes and face, as well as the cleansing balm. It’s very unusual that a balm is used for cleansing. I love it.
If you would like to check them out go to; www.beautydespitecancer.co.uk
Not only is the website full of great products which you really must have, (if you are anything like me- a product junkie – then you ‘have’ to have everything!) it is has great information shared by other canSer survivors and a blog. There is a team of people sharing their knowledge and expertise on beauty, well-being and fashion as well as writers from the fields of business, finance and insurance.
Wigs and hairpieces are also sold on the site. Plus there is a 0800 number that you can call; Appearance Advice and Enquiries telephone: 0800 999 8518
I would highly recommend you spend some time reading and if you don’t have canSer then there is a section where you can buy gifts! Hint hint!
Jennifer Young also has another range of products for ‘healthy’ people. They are great as you can customise your skin care for your specific needs. I think it is a genius idea and the products look great! Here is more about Jennifer Young; http://www.jenniferyoung.co.
I am so interested in these products that I am considering purchasing both ranges to use with my beauty clients. It would be lovely to offer those whom need special treatment something that is made with them in mind.
I will be trying out the fake tan soon too. I’ll let you know how that goes once I’ve tried it. I have just seen today that a mascara has been launched too. How weird life is.. I was just thinking I needed a new mascara.
The Universe spoke to me.
