Beauty workshops for women and men
The Lynda Jackson Macmillan Centre is proud to offer Look Good Feel Better beauty workshops.
Look Good Feel Better is an international cancer support charity, formed in the UK specifically to help people combat the visible side effects of their cancer treatment. The overall aim is to increase confidence and self-esteem and give people back an element of control during treatment.
The free skincare and make-up workshops are held monthly at Mount Vernon Cancer Centre. Led by trained beauty consultants, the sessions are informative and, most importantly, fun. They also provide an opportunity to meet others in a similar situation.
In the ladies’ workshops, participants are taken through a 12-step skincare and make-up regime. Workshops for men including grooming basics and shaving advice specifically geared towards some of the challenges of treatment.
Each participant is given a gift of products, donated by different cosmetics companies, which they are shown how to use to best effect.
Look Good Feel Better also runs virtual workshops. There’s more information about these on their website.
