Look Good Feel Better is calling on supporters to go “dry” in July in support of the anticipated 10,000 cancer patients it will assist in 2016.
The charity is aiming to fundraise $100,000 through the Dry July campaign, helping to fund 100 workshops right across the country.
Dry July encourages participants to give up alcohol for the month of July and raise funds for their nominated charity. The month long journey asks participants to make the pledge to ease the burden and give a bit of comfort for those affected by cancer. It also allows participants to focus on their own drinking habits, and the value of a healthy balanced lifestyle.
LGFB has been providing free workshops for Australian women, men and teens for over 26 years. The workshops are designed to help patients better cope with the appearance-related side-effects caused by cancer treatment.
For 34-year-old cancer patient Marina, the Look Good Feel Better workshop offered her a true sense of camaraderie with other women going through treatment. “Look Good Feel Better sounded like a great way to meet other people going through cancer. I learnt how to apply make-up and where to start and finish my eyebrows - they’re clinging on at present! I didn’t wear a lot of make-up prior to my diagnosis but now, if I go out to I tend to put more on and it really does give me the confidence to see other people,” says Marina.
“The best thing about the workshop for me was seeing a group of women, all going through a similar experience and all looking their best after picking up a few new tips and tricks.”
Each participant receives a Confidence Kit, full of skincare and make-up products to use as tools for application throughout the workshop. Local volunteers qualified in cosmetics and hair styling provide information and advice to the participants.

Following many years of research and development, the pearly white new eye cream from Skin Physics®, EYEFIX-360®, has arrived, and it’s a game changer in the world of anti-ageing eye creams. Most eye creams either promise instant effects or long terms results; with little being able to produce both...until now.
Whether you have a high roller budget, or a shoe string discretionary spend would you ever purchase a fragrance you just don’t like…and then wear it? A fragrance is your sensory signature, it’s your lasting sensory impression you leave with the one you encounter. A woman or man’s relationship with their fragrance is an intimate bond. The scent of a fragrance allows you to be creative and individual, to create an alter ego or choose a particular persona - you choose who you would like to be that day.
Asia remains the dominant player in global skincare sales, with consumers across the continent “obsessed with” seeking to achieve flawless skin that is clear, luminous and seemingly transparent. To help cosmetic manufacturers tap into this growing trend for the appearance of glass-like, cloudless skin, in-cosmetics Asia (trade show) has announced hydration and haircare as two of these major focuses of its Spotlight On areas this year.
