Bee venom in skincare, what is it and what does it do? As you know bees don’t generally sting and venom is something that is normally associated with snakes, so this term can be a little confusing. Bee venom is actually a defensive toxin produced by bees.
From my research, it is collected by lightly electrified glass. The bees are attracted to sting the glass; thankfully their stingers won’t get caught, so they don’t die in the collection of this ingredient!
Skin Chemists have created their Bee Venom Facial Serum to plump, hydrate and stimulate the skin, leaving it looking more youthful and reducing the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles. The ingredient fools the skin into thinking it has been stung, so the blood circulation increases in the areas that it has been applied to.
The Bee Venom is teamed with Hyaluronic Acid, which is known to help boost moisturise levels and Manuka Honey which is amazing at nourishing the skin.
I’ve been testing the Skin Chemists Bee Facial Serum for two weeks now and the results are impressive. The bee venom gives an ever so slight tingle and my skin feels tighter, but at the same time, I notice it looks plumper due to the Hyaluronic Acid and Manuka Honey working together.
I think this would be fantastic for anyone who is looking for an anti-aging product with instant results. I don’t have wrinkles or fine lines but I do really think it help with the way my skin looked. You could even use this before a special event to perk the skin up, making it easier to apply makeup.
The serum has been easily slotted into my routine, every other night. I’ll cleanse as usual with my Elemis Pro-Collagen Balm and then massage the Bee Venom Serum in. I find taking my time to active the product with massage really helps kick start the blood circulation increase. I’ll then pop a drop or two of oil onto the face. I can recommend the Skin Chemists Rose Quartz Youth Facial Oil or the Clarins Lotus Oil. To finish I apply a thin layer of Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream.
This product is not suitable for those who are allergic to bee stings, and I advise anyone with hyper sensitive skin to give this product a miss.
