Bees & Skin care
Apitherapy is the use of honey bee products to treat skin conditions. This type of therapy has been around for years. Various products of honey bees are used including honey, propolis, beeswax, and bee venom.
Bee venom acupuncture has actually been used to treat pain in Eastern Medicine as well.
Bee venom contains mellitin that works as an anti inflammatory. There are other enzymes and peptides that help slightly swell the skin to relax the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and accelerate cell turnover.
As long as you are not allergic to bees or Hyaluronidase they can be safe to use.
If you have an allergy to bees- please avoid these products!
The best way to incorporate bee venom into your routine is through a mask. Using a mask infused with bee venom occasionally will help to plump the skin temporarily without irritating the skin too much.
