Access to products to assist with the recovery of features damaged by cancer treatment is easier thanks to programmes like the Look Good Feel Better Trust.
The trust is a free, non-medical and brand-neutral initiative that shares tangible tips and techniques to help people face cancer with confidence.
Someone who is making his first visit to New Zealand to throw his support behind the programme is Ophthalmologist and lash serum formalist Dr. Michael Brinkenhoff.
He tells host Leah Panapa the inspiration behind his RevitaLash cosmetics was his wife surviving breast cancer but losing her lashes in the process.
"When you fight the cancer that's the first priority but when you start to come back from that it's important to feel like who you were before."
