Kate Middleton’s Beauty Secret is Bee Vemon Facial. Yes! You read it right. Bee Venom Facial. The Duchess of Cambridge has been using Bee Venom to keep her skin flawless and even, ever since it was recommended to her by her stepmother-in-law Camilla.
This facial is a big hit among A-listers including Victoria Beckham and Kylie Minogue.
The venom used in facial is extracted using a small metal plate which is placed inside the hive. It carries a very small electrical charge that doesn’t harm the bee but makes it feel threatened so it releases venom.
The plate is hard so the bee retains its sting and survives, unlike when they sting a soft-bodied animal like us. The venom is then scraped off to be used in beauty products.
The secret ingredient is used to fool the skin into thinking it has been lightly stung. This causes the body to direct blood towards the area and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin.
Collagen strengthens body tissue, while elastin is the protein that helps the skin to remain taught. The idea is that your skin will look fresher, younger and tighter almost immediately.
Dubbed the ‘natural botox’ it is a treatment I would definitely recommend and it is the only treatment I have had that has made an instant difference to the appearance of my skin
