Makeover for the spirit.
Look Good Feel Better is a free program that teaches beauty techniques to women who are currently receiving cancer treatment.
Cancer can take so much already, but it doesn’t have to take away self-confidence. That’s why we help with the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment.
Because sometimes, when you look good on the outside, you can feel better everywhere else.
How it works:
Look Good Feel Better (LGFB) group programs are offered nationwide in comprehensive cancer centers, hospitals, American Cancer Society offices, and other community settings. In these sessions, trained LGFB volunteer beauty professionals teach women how to cope with skin changes and hair loss using cosmetic and skin care products donated by the cosmetic industry. The free cosmetic kits provided at these group sessions are available in light, medium, dark, and extra dark shades to enhance all complexion types. Women also learn ways to cope with hair loss with the use of wigs, scarves, and other accessories.
The LGFB style video is also shown during the workshop. While most women find the supportive group environment of the Look Good Feel Better workshop most beneficial, the program is also offered in some areas as a one-on-one consultation by trained Look Good Feel Better volunteer beauty professionals in their salons using the patient’s own makeup as learning tools. In additions, self-help materials, are available to those who cannot attend a Look Good Feel Better group program or one-on-one consultation.
BEAUTIFUL REFLECTIONS is the LGFB room which the Women's Cancer Council (WCC) has set-up, decorated and volunteer for this program. This room is located within the ACS's office in the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce off of Sugarloaf Parkway.
