Unfortunately, I know several people who have undergone cancer treatment. For women especially the impact on their appearance just adds to the stress they are under. We all know that it is what is on the inside that really matters, but we all also know that when we look better we feel better. When TheMotherhood asked me to participate in this campaign on behalf of Look Good Feel Better I eagerly said yes. Opinions are always my own.Look Good Feel Better 25th Anniversary #ReimagineBeauty

Look Good Feel Better is a program celebrating its 25th anniversary in helping women regain a positive self-image, inside and out, when they are undergoing cancer treatments. The program is a free service, non-medical, and brand-neutral. There are Look Good Feel Better programs in every state so all women can access this tool.

I know when my mom went through her cancer treatment her skin changed and she lost her hair. My mom was never one to wear a ton of makeup, but she still likes to look nice. She was still working at the time in an office at the time too. Mom wore scarves often on her head to keep herself warm but she did have to go through the process of getting a wig as well that she wore to work. One thing that really has stuck with me is that my son, Taylor, was young when his Grandma had cancer and when she lost her hair it really took him by surprise. He was scared because he didn’t know why it happened and she looked so different. Mom was great about trying to make him feel comfortable with her temporary look but I’m sure that it was hard on her too. All of these things are issues that the Look Good Feel Better program can help women with which is why I think it is a good cause.

To celebrate their anniversary they are in the middle of the #ReimagineBeauty campaign. Even if you are not undergoing cancer treatment yourself you can still take part by sharing with your friends and family. You might know someone yourself going through cancer right now or you may pass along the info without knowing and in turn help someone you never even realized. Use the Virtual Makeover Tool on yourself. It gives some nice tips for skincare and makeup for everyone but you will also gain a bit of understanding of this issue that women undergoing cancer treatment are dealing with. Here is my Virtual Makeover before and after photo. I opted to put a scarf on in the makeover because I know so many women go that route. I feel very Rhoda-ish!
