The proceeds of all four tours will be donated to the Cancer Society of New Zealand and cancer charity, Look Good Feel Better.
Look Good Feel Better helps women cope with those changes in appearance, boosting their self-esteem and emotional resilience so they can better handle the medical battle they have on their hands.During the 2½ hour workshop trained volunteers show women how to cope with the appearance side-effects of their cancer treatment, such as dry, flaking skin, swollen or gaunt faces, scars, pigmentation changes, acne, brittle fingernails and, of course, hair loss. The volunteers take the women through a step-by-step skincare regime and shown how to apply cosmetics to help camouflage loss of eyebrows, eyelashes and changes in skin colour. Then they are shown how to use wigs, turbans and scarves to look stylish no matter how much hair they have lost.
