American Cancer Society’s Look Good, Feel Better


The Look Good Feel Better group workshop is a 2-hour hands-on workshop for female cancer patients. It includes a detailed description and demonstration of the 12-step skin care and makeup program. Also instruction on options relating to hair loss, including wigs (types/care), turbans and scarves, nail care.
 
Suggestions on clothing and ways to use flattering colors and shapes, as well as ways to camouflage areas of concern during cancer treatment. Each patient who participates in a group workshop receives a free 300.00 kit of cosmetics, donated by the cosmetic industry, to use as tools to learn techniques during the program and take home!
 
A group program typically includes 6 to 8 patients and is run by a volunteer licensed beauty professional who conducts the workshop. Look Good Feel Better is free, non-medical and salon and product neutral. Volunteers and program participants do not promote any cosmetic product line or manufacturer. All cosmetics used in the group program have been donated.
