Don’t let cancer win with your battle against beauty. Grab your best pair of heels to throw on with a mini skirt or treat yourself to looking fabulous in a dress for a night out. Both looking and feeling beautiful can instantly boost a woman’s self-confidence and make her feel like the goddess she truly is at heart. By incorporating some of these simple beauty and fashion tips you can feel more radiant and healthier than ever. Improving the way you feel emotionally is an important part of your fight against cancer. Add beauty and fashion to your artillery to help you feel empowered before, during and after cancer treatment.
Take Care of Your Skin
Improve your appearance by drinking plenty of water and using appropriate skin moisturizers all over your body and on your face. By staying hydrated and applying lotion daily, it will leave your skin feeling silky smooth and looking sexy. However, if your skin is more on the sensitive side, choose an unscented moisturizer to avoid further irritation. Apply the moisturizer at the beginning and end of the day, if needed, to keep your skin soft and supple.
Skirts and Dresses
It’s no secret that the majority of women would rather throw on a pair of sweatpants to relax and give their body a nice break from school or work clothes. However, instead of grabbing those sweats or reaching for a pair of your favorite jeans, try a soft skirt or comfortable dress will make you feel more beautiful and feminine, while still maintaining your comfort. When you need to head out of the house, add a sweater and scarf to complement your dress or skirt and you'll leave not only looking fabulous but feeling more alive and feminine as well.
Feeling Beautiful at Night
There's nothing like the feeling of silk or satin against your skin. Indulge in a little luxury at night by wearing a pretty nightgown or luxurious pajama set. The feeling of silk or satin will be nice against your skin while allowing your skin to breathe at the same time.
Dealing With Hair Loss Your Way
If you're comfortable wearing a wig or even looking to try something new, buy a few different styles to give you a new incredible look. If a wig bothers you more than helps, try wearing a bold and vibrant headscarf instead to really spark some color and lively up your wardrobe.
Enlist the help of friends and family members in your efforts to look and feel beautiful. Shopping with friends or family members provides you with much-needed social time while giving you the chance to shop for new clothing or skincare products. Be sure to take one small step toward feeling beautiful each day, even if it means just putting on a new necklace. When you take the time to look fashionable and feminine, you'll experience an increase in self-confidence that can serve to help you as you go through treatment for cancers such as mesothelioma.
