Hi, I’m Wendy. I am a thirteen-year breast cancer survivor. I’m sharing what I consider to be the very best beauty products for breast cancer patients available today. This list includes products for scalp and hair stimulation, skin care, cosmetics that are affordable and accessible for those going through treatment and post treatment. This post has been updated for 2022.

What Helps Hair Growth After Chemo

Cold capping wasn’t as popular in 2008 as it is today. When I go in for my yearly oncologist visits, the waiting room is bustling with ice chests.

I lost all my hair from chemotherapy, including eyelashes, eyebrows and just about everything else. It was a real bummer. Here are some of the items I used to help with hair growth after chemo, plus a few new things I wish were available.

How Long After Chemo Does it Take for Eyelashes to Grow Back?

Eyelashes can take up to a year to fully grow back after chemotherapy treatment. I had a few lashes hang on but for the most part they fell out. Latisse was the only product in the lash regrowth game for a long time but there are many affordable options available today.

Fiber mascaras are great for giving lashes a longer and fuller appearance. Here are a few of my go-to favorites.

Best Eyebrow Kit for Chemo Patients

They say that eyebrows are the frame of the face and it’s true. I recently got my eyebrows microbladed and I’ve never been happier with how they look. During chemo, my eyebrows stayed mostly intact but were very sparse. I used a now discontinued product from Smashbox that was a duo of powder and wax that stayed all day.

Skin Care Products for Chemo Patients

The skin on my face was dull and drab during chemotherapy. First and foremost, you must stay hydrated. And I know that even water can taste weird during treatment, but make sure you’re drinking more than enough. Here’s what else will help your skin glow.

Can You Wear Makeup During Chemotherapy?

Yes, yes, yes – you can definitely wear makeup while undergoing chemotherapy treatment. I know there were days I wanted to lay on the couch and watch a marathon of reality TV. But, there were also days where I needed to function like a human being and I wanted to feel pretty and put together.

Here are the cosmetics I think will make you feel just like that:

Skin Care Tips During Radiation Treatment

After chemo, I did weeks of radiation treatment that did a number on my skin. Here are my top skin care tips during radiation treatment.

Chemotherapy and radiation treatments can be scary and awful but they are temporary. Your hair will grow back, your skin will glow again and everything will be back to normal before you know it.
