The Look Good feel better program is a community-based, free, national service that teaches female cancer patients beauty techniques to help restore their appearance and self-image during chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Women with cancer learn makeup and skincare techniques to offset the damaging effects of treatment and as a result experience increased self confidence and knowledge of self-care.
Volunteer beauty professionals lead small groups, usually consisting of 6 to 10 women, through practical, hands-on experience. Women learn about makeup techniques, skincare, nail care, and options related to hair loss such as wigs, turbans, and scarves. Each participant receives a make-up bag containing $150 – $250 worth of face products to take home with them.
