bee pollen diy for anti aging

Of all the trending skincare ingredients in the world, there’s a reason why you should stop and make note of bee pollen. After all the buzz its created, you can find it in the list of ingredients in cosmetics, and even as independent capsules, creams and soap concoctions for direct application. That said, why contaminate something all-natural with commercial additives, when you can retain its wholesome goodness?

Bee Pollen For Skincare
For the uninitiated, bee pollen is actually food for younger bees that have been packed into pellet form by the adults in the hive.

  • This beehive produce is a rich source of amino acids, which are essential to produce anti-aging collagen.
  • It also contains vitamins (especially of the B strain), zinc, silica and fatty acids. In tandem, they are anti-inflammatory and minimize the size of acne, reduce the visibility of pimples, and treat scars too.
  • Bee pollen is rich in nucliec acids, which prevent premature aging and stimulate cell regeration.
  • The natural emollient locks in moisture and helps hydrate the pores by delivering the right nutrients to the skin.

With benefits aplenty, we teach you how to make your own anti-aging mask that will work as a moisturizer and reduce the appearance of fine lines and pimples.

Bee Pollen DIY: Blend together 1/2 avocado, 1tbsp raw honey, 1/4 cup milk and 2tbsp granulated bee pollen. On a clean face, apply this mask and leave it on for 20 minutes before rinsing with warm water.

Trivia: Of the lot, honey is the queen bee of anti-aging ingredients, while bee venom is perfect for skin tightening and is used by the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton herself. So as far as skincare goes, we urge you to tap into the hive and ‘Be all that you can bee’.
