Look Good Feel Better Program Overview

 

About Look Good Feel Better:

For the past two decades, the Personal Care Products Council Foundation, supported by the cosmetics industry, the American Cancer Society and the Professional Beauty Association, has worked to give confidence to people undergoing cancer treatment through the Look Good Feel Better program.

Founded more than 24 years ago, the Look Good Feel Better program has helped more than 1.2 million people across the country and in 24 countries around the world regain confidence during cancer treatment by helping them to deal with the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment.  Workshops are FREE, available in all 50 states, and staffed by local expert volunteers that offer lessons in how to apply cosmetics and accessories that help address the changes in skin and hair loss that often accompany cancer treatment, as well as tips on wardrobe/styling to help mask weight changes and surgical alterations.

Look Good Feel Better is dedicated to changing the way people with cancer approach their disease.  Reminding them that they are beautiful inside AND out. And letting them know that they can regain some normalcy in a life that is by no means normal.

More information on Look Good Feel Better – including a program finder, virtual workshops and web-based tips, expert posts on the LGFB Blog and a donation mechanism can be found at www.lookgoodfeelbetter.org.  Find us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/lookgoodfeelbetter or on Twitter at www.twitter.com/LGFB.

What can we do to help? Here are some suggestions from the Look Good Feel Better Organization:

1. Starting NOW: share the graphic below promoting our upcoming #LGFBWeek Twitter Chat on Wednesday, April 24th, featuring celebrity makeup artist Tim Quinn, celebrity hair stylist Oribe, and doctors from NYU and Memorial Sloan Kettering. Join in and ask questions about beauty, skincare, hair care, and to share your tips on how to look and feel healthy and confident!

2. Starting Monday, 4/22: Switch our your Facebook profile photo for the week, and use one of the stunning images from our new print PSA campaign in its place. Encourage your followers and friends to change their photos too, and stand with you as you help support women with cancer in their quest to feel good!

What is Look Good Feel Better?
Look Good Feel Better (LGFB) is a global program aimed helping people with cancer cope with the appearance-related side effects of their treatment. For 24 years, the program has served more than 800,000 people with cancer in the U.S. and more than 1.2 million people with cancer around the world through free workshops, self help materials and webinars run by a team of 7,000 volunteer beauty experts. LGFB works to help cancer patients look and feel like themselves again – giving them self confidence, hope and a sense of normalcy.

What are the ‘LGFB Beauty’ Mobile App and Web Tool?
The LGFB Beauty app and web tool provide a step-by-step walk through of the Look Good Feel Better 12-step beauty program, covering a variety of topics from skin care to proper cosmetic applications to the use of turbans, hats and wigs. It also features expert advice in the form of instructional videos from fashion expert Stacy London and celebrity makeup artist Carmindy.

How does it work?
LGFB Beauty uses a person’s own image, captured through their mobiledevice or webcam, as well and/or images of past LGFB participants, to dynamically demonstrate how to combat the outward side effects of cancer treatment. Users can try on different shades and styles – creating and saving numerous different, unique looks.

Who is it for?
The new Look Good Feel Better, mobile and web applications have been designed specifically for cancer patients. They will be used also at the point-of-care – by medical professionals looking to introduce patients to the program – and by family members and other loved ones interested in learning more. Though a digital app can never fully capture the one-on-one support and connections created through LGFB’s live workshops, LGFB Beauty is designed to help reach those patients unable to attend a live session, and to further educate those who may be hesitant to attend one.

Where do I get it?
LGFB Beauty mobile and web applications are now available for iPhone® and iPad® in the AppStore® and accessible online or for other mobile operating systems at www.lookgoodfeelbetter.org.

If you know someone fighting cancer please share this information with them. By teaming together we can be a part of this battle and do something good.

Look Good Feel Better – BCA message

Beauty Info Zone has shown you several ways to help raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness in the past week and we want to continue to share. BCA is not just for October. It’s something we need to be aware of all year long. If you are or you know a cancer patient then you know that there are devastating side effects of the treatments. Look Good Feel Better is an organization that has workshops to help patients regain their self-confidence and focus on not just being a cancer patient but becoming a cancer survivor instead.

OUR MISSION: Look Good Feel Better is dedicated to improving the self-esteem and quality of life of people undergoing treatment for cancer. It is our aim to improve their self-image and appearance through complimentary group, individual, and self-help beauty sessions that create a sense of support, confidence, courage, and community.

Workshops are free and they are available in all 50 states. They offer cosmetic advice as well as hair advice and styling advice. They know that if you look good then you are working on your way to feeling good too. Attitude is so important in this fight.

By going to the Look Good Feel Better site you can find out about all the programs, make donations, find beauty guides and learn how to become involved.  Beauty Info Zone wants to encourage you to go to this site and to share it with others. You can also learn more about them on their facebook page or on Twitter. This organization has been helping people for 23 years and we want to spread the word so that more and more people are aware of it. We never know when something can strike.

Thank you for reading and taking the time to learn more. – Marcia and Lisa

*Beauty Info Zone will receive a sample for posting this, this doesn’t affect how strongly we feel about this organization since we didn’t need the encouragement to share something this important.
