This week makeup artist Lisa Potter-Dixon and Cancer Campaigner Helen Addis announced the launch of The C-List on World Cancer Day, a new Online Beauty Portal for People Living with Cancer.
“Having the cancer bomb dropped on you is devastating enough but when your skin, nails and hair start taking a blow during treatment, it can really take the elastic out of your knickers. Cancer patients are often advised by their medical team and beauty staff to “use baby products” as some beauty products are not safe for use if you are undergoing cancer treatment like chemotherapy. Well-meaning perhaps but also impractical. How many six week old babies have their moods elevated by a splash of lippy or nail varnish? With one in two of us getting a cancer diagnosis in our lifetime, it is clear that something has to change.”
“This is why The-C-List has been created – with the sole mission to make the cancer journey a little less, well, sh**ty. First of its kind, this passion project is driven by makeup artist Lisa Potter-Dixon and cancer campaigner Helen Addis. Not only is it an online beauty shop packed with cancer-kinder products from trusted brands, it’s also a growing community site with video tutorials and blog posts. The content promises to cover things like how to fill in your eyebrows, tips on how to tell your children or how to rehydrate your skin during treatment.”
“TV Producer and mum of three, Helen, was 39 when diagnosed with an aggressive breast cancer. She found it difficult to figure out which products were gentle enough to use for her aggravated skin. “I felt really lonely trying to navigate my way through trying to make myself feel good. Finding cancer-kind products was virtually impossible. Joining forces, Helen and Lisa approached trusted brands to curate the best products that are suitable for sensitive skin AND give results. The pair have also spoken to fellow cancer patients for tips to look and feel good. The C-List sees itself as more than a shop. It’s a club to offer support to cancer patients when they need it most – a support system to deal with the C-card that has been dealt. 100% of net profits created from the affiliate linked products sold will go towards gifting a much-deserving C-Lister with a beauty hamper or a spa treatment eachmonth.”
