The Look Good…Feel Better Foundation* is a complimentary cancer support service for women living with cancer. This Foundation provides beauty workshops through a network of Hospitals, Oncology Units, Interim Houses and Clinics across South Africa. Cancer patients that are undergoing active cancer treatment are invited to attend these workshops where they receive professional advice and guidance on how to cope with the emotional and appearance related side effects of their treatments. The purpose of this program is to provide a morale-boosting service to restore a sense of well being and boost self esteem during this extremely turbulent time. The philosophy behind the program is that “if you look good, you feel better”.
Women who are undergoing cancer treatment often experience many side-effects that alter their appearance and body image. These physical changes may include hair loss, sensitive and dry skin, uneven skin pigmentation, puffiness, brittle nails and nail discolouration. At these workshops, professional beauticians take the group of ten patients through a 12-step skincare and make-up regime that shows them how to cope with these changes in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Advice on application, skin care treatments and cosmetic products to suit complexion colours is given. The ladies are also given a lovely complimentary gift bag filled with cosmetic and beauty products which enables them to practice and continue their beauty regime at home.
At Oh So Heavenly we strive to develop indulgent personal care products that make our Oh So Heavenly ladies feel pampered and special every day. We believe that spending some ‘me’ time pampering oneself with indulgent products, can uplift one's spirit and increase one's sense of well-being. Despite medical advances, Breast Cancer remains the most commonly diagnosed cancer among women. The Look Good…Feel Better workshops help to improve the lives of women undergoing radiation treatment by helping them restore their self confidence, self worth and morale. With the Foundation's firm belief of “if you look good, you feel better”, it is clear to see why we are supporting this foundation. We love being involved in helping to improve the lives of these women so that they can get the special pampering that they deserve, allowing them to feel good both inside and out! We have already donated R100 000 up front to this worthy cause, and are now reaching out to our consumers to help us grow the fund further. Our new Oh So Heavenly Positively Pink range is a dedicated breast cancer range, whereby we will donate a further amount per product purchased to this foundation.
Together we can make a difference!
