“One of the telling moments for me was when one of the ladies actually took her wig off in the middle of the workshop”
The aim of a Look Good Feel Better skin care and make-up workshop is to help women combat the physical side effects of their cancer treatment, gaining confidence and self-esteem at a difficult time.
The benefits of a workshop are summed up in the following comments by a lady who has recently gone through chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer and attended a Look Good Feel Better workshop:
“On the morning, I was really excited about the workshop. The knock-on effects of cancer can take away all your self-confidence and the workshop certainly helped build it back up again. It also lets you know that you are not alone, as sometimes during your treatment, you can feel really isolated.
For me, it put things into perspective and made me realise that perhaps things weren’t as bad as I had been thinking they were. One of the telling moments for me was when one of the ladies actually took her wig off in the middle of the workshop. It was obvious that she was self-conscious about her hair loss, but when she was amongst the rest of us in the same situation, she felt confident to take off her wig and relax.
The products in our gift bags were brilliant and I have received compliments on my make-up several times since I attended the workshop. I actually used my make-up as a confidence boost, as I couldn’t wear a wig when I lost my hair, so knowing I had made every effort with my make-up, made me feel so good about myself.
Overall, I would recommend the Look Good Feel Better workshop to anyone going through cancer treatment and can’t speak highly enough about this charity.”
