Bee venom is one of those things one would never think as something that might be good for you, and the only thought of it is scary and makes us imagine faces deformed by the sting of angry bees.
But after reading that Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, and Gwyneth Paltrow were using this spine-chilling product onto their flawless porcelain-like complexion, our editors decided to try the Bee Venom Moisturiser, also known as 'Beetox'.
Interestingly, the same venom that causes the swelling is responsible for plumping up and firming your skin, filling and smoothing the wrinkles. The natural ingredient is considered to be the Botox of nature, with the advantage of not using needles! The results are quite immediate. We found the cream to be easily absorbed and the appearance of the skin, more specifically, the wrinkles, improves almost instantly.
Maria Hatzistefanis, the founder of Rodial, the brand that produces Bee Venom Moisturizer, explains that “bee venom adds a rush of blood to the area and stimulates the production of natural collagen and elastin”.
The dermatologist and founder of Advanced Dermatology & Skin Cancer Associates in Memphis, Dr. Purvisha Patel says that the venom stimulation of the production of collagen and elastin strengthens tissue and “ helps the skin to remain taut and bounce back into shape.”
We from Notorious are absolutely happy with the results, our editor's between eyes wrinkles (we work hard in front of the computer finding the best in the net for you) have visibly softened.
A FEW THINGS YOU STILL HAVE TO KNOW
No bees are killed in the production of the bee venom products. Also, if you have any kind of allergy, do check with your dermatologist whether you can use this natural botox or not.
