dab, smooth, & puff your way to a confidence boost

In this online, self-care workshop, we invited seventeen young people to join us for an easy skin care routine, and the opportunity to get to know each other. With weakened immune systems, the young people are still cautious about joining us for a face-to-face session, using public transport and meeting with others outside of their usual “bubble”. So, an online opportunity was ideal.

Ahead of the session, we posted out a self-care pack which contained safe and nurturing products that are perfect for dry, sore, itchy, flaky and sensitive skin, so often caused by the treatment of cancer. Skin-related side effects tend to be temporary, but they can be a source of real anxiety – especially for young women. If they don’t look or feel themselves, it can make their treatment more stressful.

So, inviting these young ladies to join us and learn some takeaway skills that help them take good care of their skin and give it a boost will help them feel more like themselves.

In this online session, we learned how to

  • Cleanse, tone and moisturise – three simple steps to follow every day
  • Apply a silicone based make up primer to even out skin tone
  • Dab a creamy concealer on the dark areas around the eyes
  • Smooth a colour-correcting cream to brighten the skin
  • Puff a little blush to the cheeks to give a little glow
  • Moisten the lips with a tinted balm

We also learned techniques to create the effect of eyelashes and eyebrows with a soft eyeline and eyebrow pencil, and powder. The young ladies felt energised and with renewed confidence, knowing that they have the basic skills to be able to recreate their new look whenever they needed.

However, the most powerful take-aways come from the “small talk” encounters of these events, where the young people realise that they are not alone in feeling the way that they do.

So, to everyone who has supported this project, we thank you for supporting us to being more of these young people together to help them understand that they are not alone.
