I have chemo once every week, and my skin is so very dry. I have sensitive skin, and now it's really driving me crazy!!! My face is breaking out as well. What are some things that I am able to use for my skin, and face?????

    Have you gone to the look good feel better class? Before I started chemo I went- a couple things - do not use any foam cleansers only cream cleansers on your face. I used a cream cleanser from Estée Lauder, purity from philosophy, and the marine water from h20. I then used philosophy hope n a jar dry skin moisturizer and also Clinique dramatically moisturizer I put them on morning and night. For my body- I used eucerin, Nivea after every shower. Good luck- as chemo went on and I got use to my regimen no real problems. The steroids could b causing u acne also

    Here I go again.... Try lindi skin it is the only thing I could use. Even aloe gave me a rash. The nurse gave me samples and it worked. I still use the body wash a year later. I swear I don't work for them their products are the only thing that worked. www.lindiskin.com

    I mix jojoba oil with olive oil that I actually wash my face with and use a warm wash cloth to steam a bit before wiping off. It will also help with break outs. Jojoba is the closet oil to our skin oil so it's giving back unlike cleansers that strip and make dryer. I also have vitamin E oil handy for my lips with lip conditioner. I put aquaphor which you get at Walgreens up my nose and anywhere else thats super dry.

    I broke out too, dry skin everywhere but my face was oily, I started using all aveeno. Soap, face wash, and lotion, it all worked very well.
