Look Good Feel Better

For about 8 years now I have been volunteering for a charity called Look Good Feel Better. LGFB is a national cancer support charity that helps boost the physical and emotional wellbeing of people living with cancer through free online and face-to-face workshops.

The first workshop for women was held in 1994 and since then the charity has developed sessions for men and teens. Each session is led by trained volunteers and offers people a chance to chat to others in the same situation themselves. They also learn useful make-up and skincare skills and techniques.

Each participant receives a large bag of skincare products, cosmetics and often perfume and body care products too. These are donated by Boots No 7, Clarins, Clinique and many other well known cosmetic houses. When the ladies arrive for a workshop, we give them a bag containing products to suit their skin tone – light, medium, dark or extra dark. We then take them through a programme of skincare – cleansing, toning, moisturising. After that, we show them how to apply make-up by demonstrating on ourselves the correct way to use the products. Before Covid, we would demonstrate on each lady in turn.

At the end of the two hour session, the ladies always look so glamorous and they are usually very happy with the results. I, personally, love to see how the ladies transform just by applying make-up. It does wonders for their self-esteem too.

On Look Good Feel better’s website,, you will find a lot more information about the charity, how to volunteer or to attend a workshop. You can also watch make-up and skincare tutorials, which you can access via You Tube too.

Look Good Feel better really is a wonderful charity that helps so many people who are going through cancer treatment.
