Julie - The Happy Skin Project

 the happy skin project - good juju herbal

For the launch of our expanded Happy Skin Project we worked with both cancer survivors and cancer patients to give an in depth look into why this project and its simple goal: get quality soap (the cornerstone of any routine) in patients’ hands at no cost to them, is a vital part of better treatment and patient outcomes moving forward. We are so grateful they have allowed us to share their experience and stories below.


Tell Us Your Cancer / Chemotherapy / Radiation / or any story that involves your time with compromised skin.
Radiation is really hard on your skin, both the radiation site and your all-over "color" and texture. I felt old and tired toward the end of radiation, and the site of radiation was really irritated.
How did chemotherapy affect your skin? How did you feel about your skin?
My skin was itchy, dry and just "angry". I felt crummy and when I looked in a mirror it reflected that.
Was there anything that helped your skin during that time?
I used a vitamin that included Aloe. I also used organic topical aloe and eucerin. I also went to a retreat by Healing Pines and I think that helped...healing starts from within and when you feel rested it's a lot easier for your body (including skin) to heal.
Did you feel that you had good options for your skin? Do you wish that there were more options for skincare during chemotherapy?
I had "OK" options for my skin. The aloe was great. I didn't like the way the eucerin made my skin feel, and once you put it on you have to wait for it to absorb before you can put clothes on. Sounds like a little thing, but when you're doing it every single day for over a month, and need to get to work or take care of your child, it's not an easy thing to wait 30 minutes to put on a shirt.


Our hope is that this project will bring tangible solutions and awareness around the broad lack of affordable (or suitable) options for people undergoing treatment for Cancer. Our long term goal is for The Happy Skin Project to be truly impactful nationwide by providing data around better patient outcomes and lobbying for high quality body care products to be covered by insurance as a preventative measure.
