What is Apitherapy?
Bee Venom: is anaphylactic, so it can temporarily relax your facial muscles (natural botox, anyone?), break down cell membranes, and improve circulation, which can create a tighter and smoother complexion. It can also plump out and firm the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Bee Venom is packed with antioxidants, enzymes, and peptides to protect you from environmental damage, and dead skin build-up. When the venom is collected the honeybee is caused no harm.
Propolis: is commonly used for its healing, antiseptic and restorative capabilities. Propolis will assist in balancing, healing, and soothing problematic skin. It also accelerates the rate of cell growth and decongests pores. Propolis protects against virus's bacteria, staph, and functions as a great anti-inflammatory agent.
Bees Wax: The anti-inflammatory properties of beeswax encourage the healing of wounds. It is also protective, helping form a barrier between the skin and the environment without clogging pores. Further, beeswax is high in vitamin A also known as Retinol, which has been found to support cell reconstruction of aging skin, acne, and health.
Honey: Raw honey helps balance the bacteria on your skin, which makes it a great product to use for acne. Manuka honey has been studied as an anti-acne product and found to be significantly more effective than other popular products. Honey speeds up your skin cells' healing processes.
Pollen: Bees may hold the secret for better skin, according to a recent study in the Asian Journal of Beauty & Cosmetology. In that study, researchers found nano-sized bee pollen to have high protein, antioxidant, anti-wrinkle, hydrating, and lightening benefits for skincare.
Royal Jelly: Both used orally and topically — may support wound healing and other inflammatory skin conditions. It's known to have an antibacterial effect, which can keep wounds clean and free from infection. Science studies revealed an increase in collagen production when given royal jelly extract.
Bee Bread: The reason it is becoming so popular in skincare is that it not only provides the skin with essential nutrients, but it also contains antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties that help protect the skin. Its wellness properties also reflect onto the skin if taking internally.
