We’re always looking for a way to make our skin look as plump and healthy as we can and we think we’ve found the secret! Bee venom has stung it’s way onto the beauty scene (pun intended) and is one of the most natural ways to get your skin looking as taught and tight as ever.
Bee venom in beauty products works to trick your skin into thinking it has been lightly stung. Purvisha Patel, MD, a Memphis dermatologist and owner of Advanced Dermatology & Skin Cancer Associates told Prevention: “This causes the body to direct blood toward the area, stimulating the production of collagen, which strengthens tissue, and elastin, which helps the skin to remain taut and bounce back into shape.” Regular users of beauty products that contain bee venom have claimed to see a number of noticeable changes such as improved skin texture and firmness, reduction of pores, fine lines and wrinkles and reduced pigmentation and sun damage.

Do not despair, fellow bee keepers, for there is not enough venom in these products to cause your skin to think it’s actually been stung! There is only a low dosage of venom, combined with other natural ingredients to both hydrate and rejuvenate your complexion.
