Protect Your Skin During Radiation Treatment

Breast cancer patients looking to protect their skin from burning after repeated radiation therapy treatments can now find a cream that spreads easily over compromised skin when they visit Ricky Knowles Hair and Wellness in Houston Texas for help with hair loss during treatment.

"We are excited to carry My Girls Skin Care Cream because we’ve worked with the American Cancer Society’s Look Good, Feel Better workshops and have seen how it benefits radiated skin when undergoing repeated treatments for breast cancer. It’s a natural fit with our mission to provide the very best products for our customers." Added Ricky Knowles, who is world renowned for his capabilities in the area of hair replacement as a result of medical conditions and chemotherapy.

Due to an evidence-based study on topical agents conducted by the Oncology Nursing Society in 2011, many radiation oncologists and clinicians are aware of the protective benefits of calendula, a key ingredient in the plant-based, fragrance and dye-free My Girls Skin Care Cream.  My Girls Skin Care Cream is sampled at more than seventy hospitals and radiation treatment centers in the U.S. as a result of breast cancer patients using it with successful results.

Ricky Knowles Hair and Wellness is the first retailer of its kind in Houston, Texas to stock My Girls Skin Care Cream locally for patients. Radiation oncologists and clinicians like it because it helps patients avoid treatment delays associated with radiation burns but also because its’ non-greasy and non-staining creamy texture spreads easily over compromised, burned skin.

“Our patients love My Girls Skin Care Cream.  They say it feels wonderful when applied to the affected skin areas and helps so much with the healing process.” Lynn Vache', Chief Therapist, Yavapai Regional Medical Center.

My Girls Skin Care Cream is formulated in Hungary and distributed by Radiant Sun, a company launched in 2008 to help people maintain a healthy appearance during and after treatment for cancer.
