In fact, looking good helps all people feel better, and solid advice about how to achieve healthy hair, teeth, skin, etc., for those undergoing treatment is invaluable. Kiernan (beauty producer, Style Code Live) combines her experience as a beauty writer and editor and a breast cancer patient to give women health and beauty routines that aid in minimizing some of the side effects of cancer and its treatments. With advice from her contacts from the fashion and beauty industries, as well as guidance from top doctors, she provides suggestions to help with skin and hair care, wig shopping, nail health, dental care, and more.
