Isabel Calleros explains the effects of chemotherapy and radiation on your skin.

Isabel Calleros:
Chemotherapy and skin care - whether you are doing chemotherapy, or whether you are doing radiation, or whether you are on specific drugs it all has to do with your cancer, okay?

So the overall view of your skin is that it has a natural pH that we have to maintain and these are things that your skincare products try to deliver to your skin.

So, whether you are using a very expensive skincare line or whether you are using something from the drugstore, you’re using what’s going to keep our skin healthy looking, fresh, renewed, exfoliated and cleansed, okay?

So when we look at chemotherapy are we getting the same thing; can we do the same thing? Is the skin going to look the same?

Do I need different type of products? These are all questions that women ask while they are going through chemotherapy or radiation and these are some of the things that we are going to address in this topic.
