Two Utah Women Helping Chemo Patients By Improving Skin
(KUTV) Many chemotherapy patients are not allowed to use antioxidants or vitamins because of its effects on the radiation from their treatment. Those two factors can often change the appearance of the patient's skin.

Two Utah women are now making it their mission to help people improve their cancer outlook by first fixing how they see themselves in the mirror. Unique Skin Studios specializes in helping chemotherapy patients and people with other conditions restore sensitive skin.

It's more than pure indulgence. It is medicine for body or soul.

"When you feel bad about yourself it's hard to feel like you are getting better," Gwen, a cancer patient, said. Gwen says the cancer changed her physically and emotionally. She said the treatment made her look old.

Unique Skin Studios helped Gwen by improving her skin and helping her feel better from the outside in.

Salon owners Laura and Kristeen offer a once a month spa day where chemotherapy patients can get a free half-hour facial. The next one is set for Tuesday.
