New and expensive beauty treatments seem to emerge by the minute, each more outrageous than the last. If you are on the perpetual quest for eternal youth, how about fueling your beauty regime with bees venom?
This natural product is believed to be as good as botox, if not better! And, blooming from the effect of bee venom facials is HRH Kate Middleton, who is perhaps, the brightest fan of this natural, organic botox.
Bee venom is the chemical substance secreted by a bee when it stings. Fortunately, getting stung isn’t part of the facial procedure. The venom is instead extracted from a bee hive by placing an electric plate in it. The bees in the hive sense the presence of this plate and release venom for their protection. This venom is then, collected, bottled and makes its way into skin products like beauty masks and serums.
No bees are supposedly harmed during this procedure, as the electric plate has a very low charge that isn’t dangerous to the bee. The bee survives,albeit frightened for life, as it doesn’t lose it sting to the hard plate.
Now begins the facial. The product containing the venom is applied onto skin and left on. Once the skin comes in contact with this substance, it is tricked into believing that it has been stung. As a result, it immediately begins an intensive repair process by producing collagen, elastin and other skin repair structures at the site of contact. This continues for a couple of days till the skin is convinced that the damage is contained. The result is plumped up skin and a visible reduction in wrinkles, fine lines and scars.
This innovative facial is pretty pricey. But if you trust the buzz of celebrities like Victoria Beckham and Kylie Minogue and dream of looking like a stinging sensation, trust the Duchess of Cambridge and save up for this exotic facial!
