This free American Cancer Society program teaches beauty techniques to women undergoing cancer treatment, to help them combat the appearance-related side effects of their treatment.
Volunteer cosmetologists teach women how to cope with skin changes and hair loss, using cosmetics and skin care products donated by the cosmetic industry. Free cosmetic kits are available at these group sessions, and come in light, medium, dark and extra dark shades to enhance all complexion types. Women also learn ways to disguise hair loss with wigs, scarves and other accessories.
The program is offered in the third floor hospital Conference Room on the third Monday of every other month at 1 p.m. To register, call the Social Services Department at 314-205-6901.
