How to "BEE" Beautiful

Taking our beauty regime to a more natural level is something that most women would love to do. We understand that what we put on our bodies is as important as what we put in our bodies. When you read the ingredients list on beauty products, there are usually many that we have never even heard of! We do this with foods too, then wonder why we are feeling sluggish and looking a bit dry.

One of the best things you can do in and outside your body is only use ingredients that you know. So when you get to something, you don’t understand or have to google, bin it.

There are lots of ingredients that we use in our cooking that are also fantastic for our skin. Coconut oil is one of them. Honey is the other. So we are going to take a look at some of the best bee based beauty products and see why they are so great for your skin.

In the UK there is a very humble looking lady called Deborah Mitchell. Deborah is the owner of Heaven cosmetics and is the woman you can thank for ABEETOXIN. Heard of it? Neither had I! ABEETOXIN is essentially bee venom. Essentially Deborah realized she could use this venom after her sister, a beekeeper, had told her what the sting of a bee does to a human. After learning about cosmetic surgery and realizing that there were many nonsurgical procedures that could be replaced with ABEETOXIN, she started her own business which used bee venom within its natural products. The results? Think of it as nature’s own botox. Your skin becomes tighter, and you can feel it lift. It is said that no bees are harmed in the extraction of the venom and Deborah calls it ‘milking." Bee venom has gone on to be used in lots of other products, and while it is pretty expensive, you can find some good value versions of the original Heaven mask on the market.

Burt’s Bees have been using wax in their natural beauty products for years. There is no milking involved in their processes. They just get good old organic beeswax and create stuff. The man behind Burt’s Bees was an unlikely looking businessman; he was a simple Beekeeper with a small humble farm who came up with an idea after selling his honey, it was a very good idea which grew into a worldwide business. Burt’s Bees offer wax based products from a simple lip salve and hand cream to a complicated but magnificent makeup range; you can also buy hair care products too.  The Beeswax is full of products which contain vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and antioxidants which will keep your epidermis nourished and plump!

Bee’s are the secret to looking and feeling beautiful, so whichever way you choose to go, try and add a little more black and yellow into your life.
