Botanicals vs Steroids for Radiation Relief: Why Rejuvaskin’s Skin Recovery Cream Is Different

If you have ever been through a course of radiation therapy or are currently in the process of receiving radiotherapy, you know that some of the side effects of radiation are rough. Fatigue, nausea, and skin irritation are all likely as your body’s cells are, quite literally, torn apart from the inside out. 


If you, like most patients, struggle with intense radiation burns, you may have turned to your oncologist and asked how to heal radiation burns. Some oncologists may recommend a steroidal cream to reduce inflammation and discomfort. However, do steroids really reduce inflammation? The answer is a bit more complicated than a simple “yes.” 


While they do reduce the signs of inflammation and often eliminate symptoms, they can also come with some harsh side effects. Let’s talk about why botanical ingredients over steroid-based radiation creams are a better alternative.

What’s The Downside To Steroidal Creams?

Unfortunately, injectable steroids and steroidal creams don’t treat the problem at its root cause; they simply mask the underlying issue. If the underlying problem is untreatable, then steroidal treatments are warranted一 if only to provide some relief to the patient. However, treatment at the source is always preferable in medicine.

Why Should You Choose Botanicals Over Steroids?

Botanicals are compounds found occurring in nature. Although steroids are present in minute quantities in our bodies, they are artificial, engineered compounds. Steroids are specifically designed to decrease our natural inflammatory processes. While this type of treatment can be life-saving in cases of anaphylaxis, they aren’t necessarily pivotal for skin inflammation一 especially when the root cause is much easier and healthier to treat.

What Botanicals in the Skin Recovery Cream Make it Different?

Curious about what’s inside our Skin Recovery Cream? Here at Rejuvaskin, we’ve combined six dynamite ingredients (along with a simple base of water, non-irritating alcohol, and stabilizers) to create the best treatment for radiation burns. In our Skin Recovery Cream, you’ll find the following great botanicals: bamboo extract, glucosamine, pea extract, calendula oil, hyaluronic acid, and aloe vera.

How Does Skin Recovery Cream Work?

Our unique blend of botanicals targets radiation damage at a cellular level, moisturizing the cells and providing them with the nutrients they need to rebuild and reconstruct themselves. Here’s what it doesn’t do: cover up the problem, creating a more significant issue once treatment ceases. With our Skin Recovery Cream, you’ll find that your skin heals faster, looks less damaged, and recovers more completely than friends who are using other creams.

How Else Is This Botanical-Based Cream Different?

Another way in which we have distinguished our Skin Recovery Cream from the steroid-based creams is this: you can begin applying our botanical-based product before you start radiation. We recommend that you start applying the cream at least one week before your first radiotherapy session for the best results. This will help prepare your skin, and it may even reduce the amount of damage that your skin will endure throughout treatment.


It’s a simple difference, but an important one: steroids simply cover up the problem一 that’s something you don’t want to do while undergoing radiotherapy. Grab a few tubes of Skin Recovery Cream today and start applying it before you go in for your first treatment.
