Bee Venom
Included in the following products – Day Créme & Masque
Bee venom is naturally produced by the stinger in a bee’s derriere. When you get stung by a bee, the venom makes your skin swell and itch, and (unless you’re allergic to bees) the reaction may last a couple of days. Bee venom therapy, though, takes the properties of a bee sting and turns it into skincare magic. Applying small amounts of bee venom creams to the skin fools it into thinking it has been stung. Blood is sent to the affected area which in turn stimulates the production of collagen, which strengthens body tissue, and elastin, which helps the skin stay firm and youthful.
Regular users of bee venom therapy beauty products like eye cream, venom masks, ointment and serum can notice a number of benefits including improved skin texture and firmness, the reduction of pores, fine lines and wrinkles, and reduced pigmentation and sun damage.
