Cold sores, also known as fever blisters, can be painful. Not only because they cause open wounds on your face that are unsightly, sore and sensitive, but also because they just don’t seem to go away. Cold sores are caused by the herpes simplex virus known as HSV-1 (not the same as the genital herpes virus, HSV-2), and the unfortunate truth is that the virus does not go away – once you have contracted it, it’s there to stay.

Cold sores are a common ailment. It is estimated that well over 50% of adults are infected with the virus. Some experience regular cold sore attacks while others seem to have the ability to suppress the virus, almost never experiencing an outbreak. Evidently, immunity plays an important role.

We all know that prevention is better than cure, so if you do suffer from regular outbreaks, try reduce the frequency by keeping your immune system in check through healthy eating and by reducing your stress triggers. If however, you start to feel that tingling and itching sensation and you know that the unwelcome cluster of blisters are about to appear, it’s a good time to get the Clear Skin Gel out.

Cold sores start off as red, swollen and burning lesions, followed by blisters that are filled with and eventually ooze clear fluid. The blisters then dry out and forms a crust-like scab that eventually heals. Throughout this whole process Clear Skin Gel lends a helping hand with potent natural ingredients.

The irritations experienced in the beginning are relieved through the high concentration Aloe Vera that offers soothing and cooling anti-inflammatory properties, thereby reducing the swelling and discomfort. The blisters that eventually become vulnerable open wounds are protected from becoming infected by bacteria, by the Tea Tree oil that keeps the area clean and sanitary through the strong anti-microbial ability. Calendula starts to stimulate collagen at the wound site, improving blood-flow to the area and preparing the skin for healing. Echinacea enhances and accelerates the healing process by assisting the immune system. Vitamin E reduces the appearance of skin imperfections once the scab heals.

So, maintain your self-confidence by reducing the extent of your outbreaks and the healing time with Clear Skin Gel. Make sure you take it with you wherever you go!
