Look Good … Feel Better

Look Good ... Feel Better is a free community-based, national service program. Cosmetologists teach women with cancer how to enhance their appearances during cancer treatments by demonstrating practical and hands-on makeup techniques. Each woman learns how to do a makeover using complimentary cosmetics and skin care products donated by the cosmetic industry. Participants also learn about skin care, nail care and ways to deal with hair loss, such as wigs, turbans and scarves. Days of the week and times may vary according to participant’s and cosmetologist’s availability.
