There’s a new no-needle fix for wrinkles that’s creating quite a buzz in the beauty community. Now the trend is to replace those Botox needles for bee stings. When applied topically, purified bee venom tricks your skin into thinking it’s been stung. While you won’t experience any of the uncomfortable side effects of a normal bee sting, the protein in the bee venom prompts your body to increase blood flow to the affected area. This process helps to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, plump the skin, and increase production of collagen and elastin.
At-Home Bee Venom Treatments
Kate Middleton and Gwyneth Paltrow are both fans of bee venom facials; however, you can get the same skin-plumping results of pricey spa facials in the comfort of your home with these bee venom masks. Simply use a mask containing bee venom once a week after cleansing to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The Nip + Fab Bee Sting Fix Lifting Mask and Wei East Manuka Bee Venom Anti Wrinkle Mask both harness bee venom’s plumping qualities to reduce wrinkles and produce a youthful complexion overnight.
For a more moisturizing treatment, try the Manuka Doctor Apinourish Rejuvenating Face Mask. This mask provides soft and smooth skin by combining bee venom with two other bee products: manuka honey and royal jelly.
Add Bee Venom to Your Daily Routine
Bee venom products can also be incorporated into your everyday skincare routine to improve collage and elastin production, which will help keep your skin plump and smooth. After cleansing, massage the RODIAL SKINCARE Bee Venom Serum to your face and neck. After allowing the serum to fully absorb, apply the Nip + Fab Bee Sting Fab Deluxe Cream or Rodial Bee Venom Moisturizer to lock in your skin’s moisture and add an extra layer of firming ingredients.
To reduce fine lines around the eyes, gently pat the Rodial Skincare Bee Venom Eye Cream underneath your eyes each night. This daily bee venom skincare routine is a gentle way to reduce wrinkles without using injectables.
Bee Venom for The Body
While many women associate skincare with facial products, it’s important to incorporate anti-aging products into all aspects of our daily beauty routines. After all, the skin on your legs, hands and arms show signs of aging just as easily as the skin on your face. Use a bee venom lotion like the Nip + Fab Bee Sting Body Souffle to provide moisture and tone the skin.
The Manuka Doctor Rub Ease Balm reduces post-workout swelling and muscle fatigue. The anti-inflammatory properties of bee venom help to relax the muscles when the product is massaged into the skin.
Always get a sample of each product before making a purchase to check for potential allergies or sensitivities to bee venom. Simply apply a small dab of the product to your wrist to see if the skin becomes red or irritated.
