Video: Bee Venom and Honey Facial Featured on Dr. Oz Show


Some of the most potent ingredients in the beauty industry come from the beehive. You’ve probably heard about the healing benefits of honey or beeswax, but you may not have heard about the anti-aging properties of bee venom.

When a bee stings, they expel venom. Your skin reacts to the venom as an irritation. Accordingly, your skin increases circulation and stimulates production of collagen and elastin, which plumps and firms fine lines and wrinkles.

As a result, bee venom facials are increasing in popularity and have been shown to lessen wrinkles in four weeks. The bee venom facemask sits for 20 minutes; this is followed by a maintenance regimen that entails applying dabs of bee venom night cream.
