Getting back a sense of control by looking good

Look Good Feel Better charity is a non-medical, brand neutral, free service that supports women with the visible side effects of cancer treatment by providing practical advice in workshops, facilitated  by professional beauty and hair advisors in hospitals across Ireland. 

We are dedicated to improving the wellbeing and self-confidence of women undergoing treatment for any type of cancer. Many beneficiaries tell us that the workshop helped them regain a sense of control and normality at a time when diagnosis and treatment had taken over their lives. 

The therapeutic and psychological benefits of women wearing make-up have been well-documented.  In particular, in the face of adversity, the desire to look good still remains.  In essence, this is the thinking behind the Look Good Feel Better Programme.

These free workshops are offered through a network of hospitals across the country.  The charity is supported by many different companies and brands in the beauty industry, who donate funds and products. 

Look Good Feel Better helps women in a very practical and positive way.  Trained beauty consultants volunteer their time and expertise to help women with simple skincare and make-up skills.  The two hour workshops are informative and lively but most of all, fun – making this particular visit to hospital something to look forward to. 

The workshops are held monthly depending on each hospital’s requirement.  Women attending workshops are taken through a 12-step skincare and make-up regime and, as an added bonus, everyone is given a substantial gift bag of products, donated by different cosmetic companies, to use and take home at the end of the session.

Workshops are held in Galway UHG, Limerick Regional Hospital, Waterford Regional Hospital, Letterkenny General Hospital, Cork CUH, St. James's Hospital Dublin, Tallaght Hospital Dublin, Beaumont Hospital Dublin and The Mater Hospital Dublin.
