Welcome to beautiful, blemish-free skin! In this booklet I am pleased to share with you my secrets to healthy, radiant, ageless, and oh yes, cold sore “free” skin. Having passed the 50-year mark, I am flattered when my patients compliment me on my skin. Frequently I’m asked how I take care of my skin and make it glow and look so healthy. So, I’m finally putting it all down in writing for you! I was not one of those people born with beautiful, blemish free skin. When I was a teen, my skin was a mess, including cold sores in high school. My skin was uncontrollably oily and blemished. In those days, there were few good remedies for difficult teenage skin. My doctor recommended a harsh scrub with sulfur and salicylic acid that caused terrible dryness and cracking. I was afraid moisturizers would only make the situation worse. Fortunately, a friend’s mother recognized my problem and showed me a better way. A gentle cleanser and light moisturizer were all it took to turn things around. Just those two small changes made a huge difference! And, when I left home for college and taught myself how to shop for and prepare nutritious meals, my skin improved even more! Ever since that pivotal time, skin care has been a major part of my day. For more than 35 years I’ve followed a ritual of healthy living and dedicated skin care. A degree in Biochemistry gave me a sound scientific foundation in nutrition and metabolism, while my experience working with thousands of patients gave me a practical understanding of the problems people struggle with most, including unsightly and embarrassing cold sores. After finding ways to heal myself and help people minimize the frequency and severity of their cold sores, I felt a deep passion to share what I’d learned with others, like you. Anyone who has suffered from acne, cold sores or other skin problems knows the toll it can take on your self-esteem. It can make you self-conscious and uncomfortable around other people, no matter what your age. No one should suffer this way! Let me assure you that even if you haven’t always practiced the healthiest lifestyle, it’s never too late to start. Our bodies have an amazing ability to repair and restore. Start now, and you will soon be pleased with the healthy, radiant face that stares back at you in the mirror!
