Finding the right makeup whilst undergoing a chemotherapy treatment can be tiring. Cancer patients that want to use makeup, often face the hard task to discover makeup products that are safe for the skin. I asked for help to my dear friend Reija, blogger of cyclingforcancer.com, who underwent chemotherapy a few years ago, to understand the struggles of a cancer patient when looking for makeup. After 3 days of extensive research, I found 43 products that are completely safe and help reduce redness, dry skin and hair loss, which are the main problems when passing through cancer treatments. I also added some videos and tips of how to apply makeup, especially in regards to false lashes and drawing eyebrows.
Most makeup products for oily skin promise to make wonders, but eventually, you either end up with your face too cakey with so much powder to control that excess of oil that always finds a way to show up in the least desired situations or having your skin breaking out from so much makeup that doesn’t allow your skin to breathe. I have tried an infinity of makeup products to keep my oily skin under control, although only a few really do the job, without creating an overly matte effect. These are the makeup “treasures” for oily skin that I found that are effective and prevent my skin from breaking out.
