Bee Venom Review - Skin Chemists

Now that I am approaching the big 30! oh gosh! that is the first time I've said that out loud! 
I feel it's more than ever important for me to make sure I'm taking care of my skin.
I don't want to have too many wrinkles if I don't have too and would like to keep my skin looking and feeling youthful.  I am lucky that all the females on both sides of my family have very good skin and they have all age beautifully. However, I am not going to just rely on my family's genetics. Every day I cleanse, tone & moisturise and recently I've upped my game and added Bee venom to my daily skincare routine. 

 Bee venom and how does it work in skincare?

Using bee venom in skincare has now become a very popular skin care regime with the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Yorkshire firm users of the Bee Venom serum. When I saw this I knew I  had to give it a try for myself.

As we age collagen and skin elasticity decreases which can lead to sagging skin and deep wrinkles. By stimulating the collagen you strength the tissue on your face and improve the skin's elasticity leaving you with firmer and youthful skin.

So how does the bee venom work? Well in simple terms it makes the skin believe that it has been stung by a bee, more correctly the toxin melittin. Blood then rushes to the area stimulating the production of collagen, leaving you with firmer and younger looking skin.

The first thing I would say is to check that you are not allergic to bees. I wasn't sure if I was or not as I've never been stung and so I decided to test a small amount on my hands and luckily I was fine.

The serum comes in a small easy to carry bottle perfect to take with me in my handbag if needed. The serum is soft and fast absorbing and you only need a small amount, the size of a pea is recommended.

Now I don't have many wrinkles if any, but the one thing I have seen is my skin looks so much fresher and lighter. I would normally wake up with a dull, grey looking skin but recently I have noticed a slight glow to my skin and I have done many school drop off's makeup free which normally I wouldn't do.

As I don't really have any wrinkles I couldn't say what the results would be but It's something that I will definitely be continuing with and hopeful it will help keep those wrinkles at bay.
