This program is run by the Cancer Patients Foundation, and the Look Good Feel Better workshops are hosted by Solaris Cancer Care.
Participants need to register directly through Look Good Feel Better either via our website - www.lgfb.org.au/workshop - or by phoning 1800 650 960.
Look Good Feel Better is dedicated to teaching cancer patients how to manage the appearance- related side-effects caused by cancer treatment. Women, men and teens participate in a practical workshop which covers skincare, make-up and headwear demonstrations, leaving them empowered and ready to face their cancer diagnosis with confidence.
The workshops include sessions on skincare techniques to alleviate symptoms including dryness and sallowness; makeup tips to help patients deal with concealing redness and drawing on
eyebrows; and advice on headwear including scarf styling and wig selection.
Each participant receives a Confidence Kit, full of skincare and make-up products donated by the cosmetic industry to use as tools for application throughout the workshop and to continue in their own homes.
Participants also benefit from the opportunity to meet others in a similar situation. Through the workshops friendships and additional support networks are formed that can help during their diagnosis and treatment.
Look Good Feel Better workshops are open to anyone undergoing treatment for any sort of cancer.
