CONFIDENCE KIT DVD LAUNCHED TO HELP WOMEN MANAGE THE VISIBLE SIDE EFFECTS OF CANCER TREATMENT

The Confidence Kit which has been created with industry experts and through generous support from Avon Cosmetics, includes an extensive DVD and 48 page booklet.  It gives invaluable information and guidance on skincare and make-up, wig selection and styling, alternative head-coverings and nailcare.

Featured in the DVD are four real-life “models”, all of whom were filmed during or after treatment and all with different concerns and problems. Marzena wanted advice on how to disguise her flushed complexion whilst Kreena wanted information on how to manage the different texture of her hair since it’s started to grow back.

Through easy to follow tutorials, International make-up artist and long standing LGFB volunteer, Caroline Barnes begins the transformations on all four of the ladies by demonstrating an easy to follow skincare and make-up routine.   This is then followed by information and advice on wigs and head-coverings from renowned international hairstylist and LGFB Honorary Vice President, Charles Worthington MBE.

Also included on the DVD and in the booklet is detailed information on headware from Nicky Smetham, the founder of Surburban Turban and information on how important it is to look after your nails from nailcare artist, Jennie Nippard.

Andrea Slater, Avon General Manager UK, says: “We are proud to support this vital initiative and the work of Look Good Feel Better which reflects Avon’s commitment to the causes that matter most to women.  Many of our Representatives are supported by this cause and the Confidence Kit will help give women everywhere a much needed confidence boost during what is a very difficult time.”

Louise Munnelly, Independent Avon Representative says: “I first attended a Look Good Feel Better session whilst undergoing chemotherapy. I found the whole session liberating and confidence boosting. Applying mascara to non-existent eyelashes was a little difficult to say the least! I’m delighted that Avon has become involved with such a fabulous charity. Helping to pick a woman up when she is at her lowest is something very special indeed.”
