Life After Skin Cancer: How to Restore and Rejuvenate Your

Life After Skin Cancer: How to Restore and Rejuvenate Your Skin

Skin cancer is one of the leading types of cancer in the US. While there are several types of skin cancer, those that are sun-related—like basal and squamous cell skin cancers—tend to be the most common.  Sun-related cancers occur when UVA, UVB, and other rays scientists are still discovering damage the DNA found in skin cells. Instead of dying off, cell growth continues to accelerate. The buildup often forms a tumor, which might look like a red bump, mole, or other skin irregularity.

Once skin cancer has been discovered, it might be killed through chemotherapy or radiation, or be surgically removed, depending on the type of cancer it is. Regardless of the treatment method, the skin should be treated very carefully, and the focus should be on restoration and rejuvenation. At that point, the skin has already gone through major trauma and will be very sensitive, so it’s important to use products that will soothe the skin and bring back its vitality.

Natural Products that Rejuvenate the Skin
Doctor D. Schwab products use natural ingredients that are free of the harsh chemicals that can further aggravate the skin. These botanicals, extracts, and enzymes feed the skin to normalize it and bring it back to a healthy appearance.

Normalizing Moisturizer N
The extremely hydrating Normalizing Moisturizer N helps to normalize hypertrophic or keloid scars, a natural result of the skin’s healing process. Highly concentrated peptides, vitamins, botanical extracts, and Grape Stem Cell Extract are encapsulated into Doctor D. Schwab’s Alphasomes® liposomal technology for optimum delivery and results.

Super Repair CoQ10 Moist
The Super Repair CoQ10 Moist combines the powers of vitamin C, which is wonderful for sustaining the skin and helping it to be healthy, and CoQ10, which is a natural antioxidant found in the body that protects healthy cells. The moisturizer actually contains the highest level of active CoQ10, which feeds the skin with nutrients and keeps it balanced. The result is an improved appearance of skin’s tone, texture, and firmness.

Arnica Mask
Arnica has a natural, anti-inflammatory property, and the concentration of it in Doctor D. Schwab’s Arnica Mask soothes and hydrates sensitive skin. When the arnica is combined with highly concentrated peptides and extracts, it soothes upset skin that has resulted from trauma like skin cancer and cancer treatments. It can be used as a mask or as a moisturizer when skin is feeling extremely dehydrated.

Rescue Cream *we will be donating 10% of sales from Doctor D Schwab’s Rescue Cream and Lip Rescue to National Breast Cancer Foundation
Doctor D. Schwab’s Rescue Cream was created especially for cancer patients and survivors. The rich emollient restores moisture to dry, damaged skin, allowing the skin to begin healing itself. Ultra-soothing botanicals, extracts, and oils reduce the appearance of redness, irritation, and inflammation often associated with cancer treatments. The cream can be applied to the face or body; anywhere there are extremely dry patches that remain after treatments.

Alpha Prho-LE® Enhancing Serum
The Alpha Prho-LE® Enhancing Serum uses a concentrated blend of antioxidants, extracts, and botanicals to help reverse the damage from environmental aggressors and harsh treatments, like chemotherapy and radiation. Its powerful ingredients are encapsulated into a patented Alphasomes® liposomal delivery system for targeted delivery and accelerated results. The ingredients promote overall skin health and provide additional hydration and nutrients, critical for recovering skin. Adding the Alpha Prho-LE® to a post-cancer skincare routine can aid in rejuvenating by fighting off free radicals while skin is most vulnerable to environmental damage.

The Benefits of Body Sugaring


The ancient art of sugaring has been revived to the forefront of the esthetics world in an ever-growing trend to use all natural products on clients’ precious skin. Sugaring uses only sugar, water and lemon to create the water-soluble paste that removes hair. The hair is not only gone from the surface, but it is also removed from the root, which increases hair softness, and over time reduces hair growth. Sugaring only adheres to dead keratin cells and hair so there is no chance of skin damage, leaving the skin not only hairless, but also exfoliated and smooth.  The sugaring process has the technician apply the sugar paste in the opposite direction of the hair growth by molding it gently onto the skin, allowing the paste to seep into the hair follicle.  It is then removed by flicking it off with the fingers in the same direction of the hair growth, allowing for the root to be extracted.  There is no need for strips and sticks—just a small amount of sugar paste will complete an entire treatment.


Each consecutive sugaring treatment results in an easier removal of the root, as the newly growing hair begins higher in the follicle— closer to the surface of the skin. Since the hair is actively growing, the client will immediately see results —thinner, finer hair growth and eventually, lack of the production of new hair growth.  With the proper sugaring technique, the root is removed in the direction of the growth, which will allow for no breakage and fewer in-grown hairs.  Clients who consistently sugar the same area every 28 days will notice a definite softer, finer re-growth after three months.  The follicle will eventually stop producing new hair growth which will lead to permanent hair loss.  This also leaves the hair shaft less attached to the root, and thereby easier to remove.  Estheticians love the process because it allows for a more efficient use of product.  Less than a palm full of good-quality paste can remove hair from a large area of the body without ever having to go back for more.  Once the paste does finally become saturated with hair and dead skin cells, the professional simply removes the glove with the paste tosses it all away.
