Chronically dry skin (Xerosis) is common in patients receiving chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Because the chemotherapy chemical is widespread throughout the body, the damage to the skin is generally widespread as well. Damage to the skin cells will lead to a decrease in the skin’s ability to produce its natural moisturizing molecules, and to produce its natural barrier function that retains moisture. When the barrier of the skin is compromised, it loses its function of protection.
NeoGenesis Recovery serum, abundant in our patented S²RM® molecules, is recommended to help restore homeostasis in the skin. A simple topical application of this product should help mitigate skin redness and irritation. Follow Recovery application with Barrier Renewal Cream, Intensive Moisturizer or Body Cream to help restore the skin’s own moisture, and re-establish the skin’s barrier function. These products may be used under other more occlusive moisturizers that may be recommended by your health care professional when dealing with chronically dry, damaged skin.
