New Anti-Aging Skin Care: Bee Venom Is the New Botox! Will You Get Stung?

Posted on July 29, 2010, 2:08 pm

The 63-year-old wife of the effervescent Prince Charles has been reported by The Daily Mail to use bee venom as a way to fight aging. Though the princess can evade taxes, even royalty can't avoid wrinkles -- especially after years of smoking and galloping under the sun. These "organic facelifts" are a non-surgical alternative to Botox.

Instead of going under the needle, the facelifts involve a mask made out of bee venom. The venom extracted from honey bees "stings" the skin causing the body to produce chemicals that will relax muscles and thereby reduce wrinkles. It's like your face getting attacked by an angry bee hive. Though it sounds totally wacky, it seems like this skin care treatment actually works, because the Duchess' wrinkles seem to have "ironed out."

Beautician Deborah Mitchell who runs the Heaven salon in Shropshire, Britain, said, "The bee venom completely changed Danni Minogue and my other clients love it so much that we have got waiting lists."

Kate Middleton may have been using venom from New Zealand bees as a face treatment ahead of her wedding. The royal bride is reported to have taken the beauty tip from Prince William's stepmother, the Duchess of Cornwall. Beauty therapist Deborah Mitchell, who runs the Heaven salon in Shropshire, in the West Midlands, sources the New Zealand bee venom. Ms Mitchell is also reported to treat other celebrities such as Dannii Minogue, Michelle Pfeiffer and Gwyneth Paltrow. Ms Mitchell has said: "The bee venom completely changed Dannii Minogue and my other clients love it so much that we have waiting lists."

A MIDLAND beauty therapist has put the smile back on the face of X Factor judge Dannii Minogue.

Deborah Mitchell has convinced the Aussie star to ditch face-freezing Botox – and instead use her new anti-ageing treatment made from bees’ venom.

But the mum-of-two, who grew up in Rugeley, says her face mask is anything but poison.

Using a host of natural, organic ingredients, including manuka honey, Shea butter and essential oils she says it helps to control facial muscles without freezing them.

In addition to Kate Middleton, it has also been reported that the likes of Victoria Beckham, Dannii Minogue, Gwyneth Paltrow, Michelle Pfeiffer and the Duchess of Cornwall have been using skincare products made from New Zealand Bee Venom.
