Beauty and the Bees



The next time someone calls you a Queen Bee take it as a compliment. Bees get a bad rap for stinging but they provide a vital contribution to our eco system and the benefits of their work; honey, pollen, venom and Royal Jelly all have amazing beauty benefits.  Also, never look at the term drone or worker bee as an insult either, the  product of their labor helps to pollinate our floral system of trees, flowers, fruits and vegetables.



Honey,  the most popular product of beework has strong external and internal properties. First off, did you know honey is an antiseptic? Healing honey, is antibacterial, keeps a wounded area moist and due to its sticky composure also creates a  protective barrier. Honey makes for great hair and face masks and it never goes bad. Suffering from recent inflammation on your face, cool it down with Look Beauty Masque Bar Honey Sheet Masks. I use it to calm down slight redness and when I feel a possible break out coming on. It soothes my skin and doesn't leave a sticky residue.




Of course brands like Burt's Bees and Savannah Bee Company have a large share of the market with entire lines dedicated to personal beautification from head to toe with bee based products from haircare to skin and body care. Savannah Bee Company actually has a line of artisinal honey and has brought back their Acacia Honeycomb jar after a few years of stopping production. Sidebar, I tasted my first honey comb last summer at the Summer Fancy Food Show at the Savannah Bee Company's booth and I am still seeking that  sensational epicurean experience.


For all of my allergy suffers, pollen which has to come from local honey- be good to your local farmers really helps to build up an immunity to seasonal hay fever. Next time you get stung, granted you aren't allergic to bee stings, thank your upset bee for that dab of bee venom because it is an anti-aging property, I'm calling it Mother Nature's botox nutrient rich with hydrating and moisturizing properties can take years off of your face. Wei Beauty's Bee Honey Wrinkle Softening Cream Cleaner should be in your routine very soon.

Last, royal jelly which is the Grand Puba of beauty ingredients going back for thousand of years but one of the first commercialized beauty ingredients beginning in the 19th century.... Now you can take royal jelly supplements or you apply directly on your skin with Perlier Honey Miel Royal Elixir Serum and Face Cream.

Of course what would a social media post be without a Kardashian mention- eldest Kardashian, and mom of three, Kourtney Kardashian has become the brand ambassador for Manuka Doctor skincare-a beauty line with ingredients from Manuka honey a Australian and New Zealand sourced mono floral  honey that is noted for high levels of healing properties.
Hopefully, I have conquered your fears of honey and now
