Skin, nails and teeth
Keeping up your usual routine during and after cancer treatment can be important when it comes to washing, skincare, shaving, your teeth and nails.
Hair loss, body hair and regrowth
Dealing with changes to your hair or losing it can be especially tough but there are plenty of options - it's about finding one that's right for you.
Makeup, tanning and body modification
Makeup, skin tone, tattoos and piercings might be an important part of your identity and having cancer doesn't have to change this.
Diet and exercise
Eating well, exercising and making sure your body is getting everything it needs can make a real difference to how you feel during and after treatment.
Self-esteem and body confidence
The effects of cancer and treatment can knock your self-esteem so remember to be aware of the things you can do to look after your mind and emotions too.
Alcohol, drugs and smoking
While you should be able to keep living life as normally as possible, it's important to be cautious of substances that could have an impact on your treatment or health, like alcohol, smoking, vaping, cannabis and other drugs.
