Recently, I was diagnosed with cancer and following surgery have had to undergo radiation therapy. My doctors explained that I had to be very careful with what I applied to my skin during and after my treatment, so I looked into a lot of skin care products before I began. Skin that undergoes radiation can often burn and becomes very sensitive. I wanted to let you know that I decided to continue to use a product that I normally use – your EltaMD UV Daily Broad Spectrum 40, primarily because I preferred its quality and texture, but also because this product was what I was most comfortable with during a supremely stressful time. Very few sunscreens are safe to use during radiation, so I was relieved to verify that one that I already felt good about was. I was very diligent about moisturizing well before my daily treatments (cleaning my skin just prior) and applying sunscreen after. In any case, please know that my skin looks great and I fortunately experienced none of the visible side effects people often have when receiving radiation on the face. My cheeks were slightly pink but that quickly faded. Even the doctors were impressed. You have a very good product and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for making me feel better during a very difficult period.
