How does Defiant Beauty Itchy Skin Oil help with itchiness?

The ingredients in Defiant Beauty Itchy Skin Oil have been purposefully chosen due to their soothing capabilities. The products used are natural and organic to reduce irritation in already dry and irritated skin. 

Why is my skin itchy?

Itchy skin can be due to a number of reasons. As the largest organ, our skin replenishes itself constantly. In order for chemotherapy to work against cancer cells it also attacks other cells that rapidly divide, this includes skin cells. The skin then can become easily dry, and dry skin becomes itchy. 

Radiotherapy is also a perpetrator of itchy skin. In order to target radiotherapy to the tumour cells, it has to go through the skin. What is left is called a “reaction area.” Reaction areas are very similar to sunburn, in they become red, dry and itchy. 

How can I reduce the itchiness?

Skin care is very important when undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Moisturising the skin with chemo and radiotherapy appropriate products such as the Defiant Beauty Itchy Skin Oil will help the skin maintain moisture. Drinking plenty of water will also help to reduce the itchiness if related to dehydrated skin. 

Will the itch go away?

Some cancers themselves such as (cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma) cause the skin to itch, whilst for other persons it is due to their treatment or medication. If the cancer is the cause of the itch, it may be difficult for the itch to go away completely, but can be managed. 

If itching is due to treatment, it should resolve once the treatment has stopped and the body has had time to recover and the skin cells have started replenishing themselves.

How often can I apply Defiant Beauty Itchy Skin Oil?

The itchy skin oil can be applied as often as needed but should help alleviate itchiness of the skin very quickly. If you are finding that the itchy skin oil is not providing any relief from dry, itchy skin, discuss with your doctor if there are medical alternatives available.

For those living with cancer, Defiant Beauty Itchy Skin Oil can provide immense relief to dry, itchy skin. It has been recommended for those undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy. However, for people having radiotherapy, it should not be applied before treatment.

My sisters found this very helpful for there skin whilst having Radio & Chemotherapy, it made there skin supple and hydrated, a little goes a long way.

I have just ordered my second bottle of Defiant Itch Oil. I have had several lots of radiotherapy down length of my spine. This has made my skin very dry. My husband massages my back each morning with the oil and it's very effective. 

I bought the Itchy Skin Oil as a last resort. I was desperate and I didn't really expect it to work but I didn't have any other options. I put it on as soon as I got in and the itching stopped immediately. I was amazed. I honestly didn't expect that!
