Dr Oz: Bee Venom Beauty Products
Dr Oz did a segment called Beauty and the Bees to introduce us to the latest in beauty products: Bee Venom of all things! Doctor Oz bravely had cages of worker bees in his studio that were making honey, beeswax, and also produce Bee Venom. Dr Oz is allergic to bee stings though, hence why it was such a brave thing for him to do! I wonder if people who are allergic to bee stings should also avoid Bee Venom in beauty products?
Dr Oz: Bee Venom Cream & Face Mask
Doctor Oz was joined by Frederique Keller, a Bee Skincare Expert, who uses everything from fresh raw honey as a moisturizer to Bee Venom in face masks. She said that Bee Venom is a secret magical ingredient. In order to get the Bee Venom out of the bee, she holds the be carefully and gently and gets it to sting naturally. You could see the stinger come out and then start pumping out the venom, which was pretty amazing. She said that she takes the Bee Venom and adds it homeopathically to creams and face masks that she sells. Interestingly, Dr Oz did a segment last season on Apitherapy, which is a Bee Therapy for Arthritis that also uses Bee Venom.
Dr Oz: Bee Venom Facial
Frederique Keller demonstrated how to do a Bee Venom Facial on a lady from Dr Oz’s audience. The Bee Venom Face Mask was a red/brown color and the lady trying it out said that it makes your skin tingle gently. Keller said that your skin reacts to Bee Venom by pumping up the collagen, which helps to minimize the fine lines and wrinkles in your skin. She suggested leaving the Bee Venom Face Mask on for about 20 minutes the first time, just to be sure you do not react badly to it. But you can work your way up to wearing it for around an hour. Keller suggested doing a Bee Venom Face Mask twice a week and following it up with a Bee Venom Cream. The products cost about $35-$45 and the little pot lasts for around 5 weeks.
