Managing Director Of Look Good Feel Better Australia
Carol Kavurma of LGFB on the Transformative Power of Beauty for Cancer-Affected Women
Today’s guest is Carol Kavurma, General Manager of Look Good Feel Better Australia.
For 31 years, Look Good Feel Better has run workshops to help Australians undergoing cancer treatment to recognise that small, simple actions of self-care each day can have a huge impact on both physical and emotional wellbeing.
The workshops encourage patients to follow a daily routine to keep their skin nourished and protected, they are taught a few tips to give the illusion of lashes and brows and are shown how to style and wear a fun piece of headwear.
We all know a fun pop of colour on the lips can make all the difference when we're in need of a little pick-me-up and for those undergoing cancer treatment, the confidence-boosting effect is even more powerful.
As a makeup artist, I have loved supporting Look Good Feel Better over the years by running virtual and face to face skincare and makeup workshops. I have seen women enter the workshops with sadness and apprehension, it quickly transforms into a sense of relief and comfort, just by being in the same room with others who understand what they are going through. They leave the workshop with a sense of renewed confidence and often as new friends, which is beautiful to watch.
I would love to support this amazing organisation further by donating $2 from every ticket sold to The Green Edit Event set for the 10th of March 2022. And if any beauty brands in our community would like to donate some products to Look Good Feel Better for use in future workshops, hopefully this episode provides a little insight and inspiration.
