Life After Skin Cancer: How to Restore and Rejuvenate Your Skin
Skin cancer is one of the leading types of cancer in the US. While there are several types of skin cancer, those that are sun-related—like basal and squamous cell skin cancers—tend to be the most common.
Sun-related cancers occur when UVA, UVB, and other rays scientists are still discovering damage the DNA found in skin cells. Instead of dying off, cell growth continues to accelerate. The buildup often forms a tumor, which might look like a red bump, mole, or other skin irregularity.
Once skin cancer has been discovered, it might be killed through chemotherapy or radiation, or be surgically removed, depending on the type of cancer it is. Regardless of the treatment method, the skin should be treated very carefully, and the focus should be on restoration and rejuvenation. At that point, the skin has already gone through major trauma and will be very sensitive, so it’s important to use products that will soothe the skin and bring back its vitality.
Natural Products that Rejuvenate the Skin
Doctor D. Schwab products use natural ingredients that are free of the harsh chemicals that can further aggravate the skin. These botanicals, extracts, and enzymes feed the skin to normalize it and bring it back to a healthy appearance.
Normalizing Moisturizer N
The extremely hydrating Normalizing Moisturizer N helps to normalize hypertrophic or keloid scars, a natural result of the skin’s healing process. Highly concentrated peptides, vitamins, botanical extracts, and Grape Stem Cell Extract are encapsulated into Doctor D. Schwab’s Alphasomes® liposomal technology for optimum delivery and results.
Super Repair CoQ10 Moist
The Super Repair CoQ10 Moist combines the powers of vitamin C, which is wonderful for sustaining the skin and helping it to be healthy, and CoQ10, which is a natural antioxidant found in the body that protects healthy cells. The moisturizer actually contains the highest level of active CoQ10, which feeds the skin with nutrients and keeps it balanced. The result is an improved appearance of skin’s tone, texture, and firmness.
Arnica has a natural, anti-inflammatory property, and the concentration of it in Doctor D. Schwab’s Arnica Mask soothes and hydrates sensitive skin. When the arnica is combined with highly concentrated peptides and extracts, it soothes upset skin that has resulted from trauma like skin cancer and cancer treatments. It can be used as a mask or as a moisturizer when skin is feeling extremely dehydrated.
