Is it really true? Can bee venom hold the key to supple, younger looking skin? Like many, I too was skeptical until I did my research. My first thought was the craziness of this notion. By the sheer meaning of the word venom, the connotation is to keep away from it. However, the science really supports bee venom and the positive impact on our skin.
Bee venom increases blood circulation. This gently plumps and firms your skin by filling and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, the rush of blood to the area stimulates the production of natural collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin play a crucial role in the strengthening of the body tissue and helps the skin remain taut and bounce back into shape. Bee venom fools your face into thinking it’s been stung thus, producing these great effects.
Of course, there are non-believers of the long term effects of bee venom in skincare. Many believe that the magic ingredient is just a skin care fad. However, the Duchess of Cambridge (Catherine Middleton who is married to Prince William) and the Duchess of Cornwall (Camilla Bowles second wife of Prince Charles) will have to disagree since they are big fans of bee venom products.
Rodial has launched a new skincare line called Bee Venom, which is clinically proven to stop the damaging effects of menopause on the face. Experts say that women going through menopause also suffer from a variety of skin problems. Deep wrinkles, puffiness, and dryness are some of the symptoms associated with this time of life due to a change in hormones. This change accelerates aging. Rodial’s bee venom products work by using bee venom along with plant stem cells to help visibly improve skin tone and elasticity. While Cyclopeptide-5 smoothes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The venom also has the effect of relaxing the muscles. It’s nature’s botox!
A few things to keep in mind; if you have allergies to bee stings do not use this product (your plumping effects may be more than what expected in all the wrong ways). The venom in skin care is very low, but someone with allergies could be affected. No bees are harmed in the making of this product. The bee venom in collected by placing a pane of glass alongside a hive and running a weak electrical current through it. This encourages the insects to sting the surface but because the bee’s lance remains in its body, the bee does not die.
