Look Good… Feel Better Offers Virtual Workshop

Article date: July 7, 2011

For many women with cancer, the noticeable side effects of treatment – hair loss, skin changes – can be some of the most upsetting. The Look Good…Feel Better® program is designed to help, and now you can get a peek at exactly how it works.

On Thursday, July 14, Look Good…Feel Better will host a free online workshop from 12 p.m. – 2 p.m. Eastern time offering tips and advice for dealing with hair loss and changes in your skin and nails during cancer treatment. It’s the same kind of program many women attend in person in their communities through the Look Good… Feel Better program.

During these sessions, trained volunteer hairdressers and cosmetologists help small groups of women learn to work with wigs, turbans, and scarves; techniques for applying makeup; and how to care for their changed skin and nails.

The online workshop is the perfect opportunity to preview one of these sessions, and pick up some useful tips. You’ll even be able to submit questions online in real time.

To register, visit the Look Good…Feel Better site at http://lookgoodfeelbetter.org/ and click on the Virtual Workshop box to sign up. Once you’ve signed up, you’ll get a confirmation email with a link, username and password for the workshop, and instructions on how to log in. The workshop is free, but you must register in advance.

A video of the workshop will be available for viewing on http://lookgoodfeelbetter.org/ after the session. The video of a similar workshop held in April is also available for those who register to view it.

This free program is offered jointly by the American Cancer Society, the Personal Care Products Council Foundation, and the Professional Beauty Association | National Cosmetology Association. Look Good…Feel Better® is a registered trademark of the Personal Care Products Council Foundation.
