Apparently the U.K. beauty scene is on to something. We’ve known for a while that people are using bee venom to get visibly younger skin—and once Kate Middleton and Victoria Beckham shared that they use it, bee venom blew up!
In fact, Kylie Minogue and Gwyneth Paltrow are also fans of this miracle venom. So what exactly is bee venom and how does it work? The CGS Team did some research and we are pretty amazed by what we found!
Technically speaking, bee venom is a colorless liquid filled with proteins that is released by a honeybee’s stinger. The venom causes inflammation at the point of contact. Bee venom can also act as a drug to help reduce blood clotting.
In beauty terms, bee venom is an ingredient used in cream or serum based facial products. When applied to the skin, the minimal effects of a light bee sting take place. Blood rushes to the face and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which firm skin.
So what are the benefits of bee venom on your skin? According to Makuna Doctor, who has their own line of bee venom products, bee venom can provide anti-aging and acne clearing results:
- Nurtures cell regeneration
- Activates renewal of damaged skin cells
- Reduces the appearance of scars
