Bee Venom for Skin-care
This is amazing. Using bee venom on your skin. Many cosmetics have it in their ingredients and tout it as a "natural botox" that stimulates the collagen in your skin that tightens it removing lines and wrinkles. Bee venom is used because of its anti-inflammatory qualities on diseases like cancer and arthritis.
How do you get it? When a bee stings, it secrets its venom. To get bee venom, one gram of bee venom, it takes 10,000 bee stings and retails for $304. Yes, it is more valuable than gold! To collect it, beekeepers use a collection frame that is wired with electrodes and covered with glass. It is inserted into the bee hive. When the bees land on the glass, they get a mild shock, which causes them to sting. The venom looks like salt on the glass and scraped off.. when venom is applied to skin, there is a slight tingling.
So, does bee venom act like botox and good for the skin? Most dermatologists state there is no evidence one way or another, whether it is applied topically or injected. Beauty salons offer bee venom facials for $65+. Some cosmetic eye cream with bee venom costs $85.
