How to soothe insect bites and the burn of stinging nettles

Faithful reader of my column, after a few days of silence, Felix is back! Today, Felix tells us all about the efficacy of the Hydrating Gel Plus HS to soothe insect bites and the burn of stinging nettles…

These last days have been very convenient for gardening and walks in the woods. In this nice weather, we want to be outdoors, and sometimes forget that as it is the beginning of spring, insects and stinging nettles have started to proliferate. The result is that, as soon as you leave the beaten tracks, the following happens : insect bites and stinging nettle burns. This is at least what happened to me and to my friends who were with me.

However, by using the Hydrating Gel Plus HS after gardening, I noticed that it soothed stinging nettle burns. And these last days, I was able to confirm this, and I have also discovered that the Hydrating Gel Plus HS was efficient to reduce, or even make the irritation caused by insect bites disappear. All those who were with me and who were the victims of insects or stinging nettles during one of our walks were able to confirm this.

So, for your walks in the countryside or the woods, don’t forget to bring with you your tube of Hydrating Gel Plus HS: if not at least to moisturize your skin, then to soothe and reduce the sensations of burn from stinging nettles and insect bites.
