You may find that some of the side effects of your cancer treatment are having an impact on how you feel about yourself. If so, Boots Macmillan Beauty Advisors are available to support you and give you free, face- to-face advice about caring for your skin, hair and nails.
Boots Macmillan Beauty Advisors are No7 Advisors, based in some Boots stores, who have been specially trained by Macmillan and Boots to provide support to people living with cancer.
Our Beauty Advisors can give you face- to- face advice about caring for your skin, nails and hair – from defining sparse eyebrows and eyelashes, to minimising dark circles around the eyes. They can also show you how to use products to disguise changes or enhance any facial features to help you look and feel good.
Visit boots.com/storelocator to find your nearest Boots Macmillan Beauty Advisor.
If a Boots Macmillan Beauty Advisor isn’t available in your area, you should still be able to get support locally and we also have information online about managing the visible side effects of cancer treatment.
A number of hospitals and support groups run workshops about coping with the changes to your skin, hair and nails during cancer treatment. You can ask your cancer nurse specialist or oncology team about the services that are available in your area, or call the Macmillan Support Line on 0808 808 00 00.
'I’m really excited about my role. It’s about boosting people’s self-esteem and helping them feel better about themselves. It’s really special to be able to help somebody have a bit of respite and escape.'
