VIDEO: Sheffield beauticians needed to help cancer sufferers ‘Look Good, Feel Better’

Cancer support charity Look Good Feel Better (LGFB) are desperately seeking trained beauticians in Sheffield to give confidence-boosting beauty treatments to cancer sufferers.

The charity has been running monthly workshops in Sheffield since 1996, but a lack of current volunteers is putting them at risk.

The workshops aim to help women struggling with the visible side effects of cancer treatment by teaching them skills such as how to draw on missing eyebrows and eyelashes.

“Losing hair can be tough enough to cope with but the loss of eyelashes and eyebrows and the skin related issues faced during treatment can prove debilitating,” said Sarah Emerson, LGFB Regional Manager.

“Our aim is to improve the well-being and confidence of people undergoing treatment for any sort of cancer, helping to improve their self-image and appearance.”

Women suffering from cancer are taught skincare and makeup regimes designed to minimise the effects of their treatment

The workshops are held at Weston Park Hospital in Broomhill where around 10-12 ladies attend each session.

Sessions are free and are ran by beauty-trained volunteers who teach makeup and skincare regimes designed to minimise the effects of treatment.

The international charity has provided support to more than 130,000 women and teenagers in the UK since their first workshop in 1994.

The service is currently available in 26 countries including the US, Australia and Israel.
