I had radiation in 2008 so don't recall all the procol, but I believe I was instructed to use Aquaphor. However, why a face cream?

The last time I did rads, RO told me what to use. They each seem to have their own preferences. Would be best to ask RO first. Some stuff may make your skin worse.

And yes, why face cream?

Hi: I had radiation in 2010 and my chin and face were very dry as my cancer was high in the breast, but for the life of me I can't remember what face cream I used..

I used both aloe and Aquaphor on my breast and collarbone. I don't remember my face being dry from radiation, but I kept using my usual Nivea throughout.

Julie50– I developed really dry skin on my face during chemo/rads. I had really good luck using Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration by First Aid Beauty.
