Botox, shmotox—we’ve got an alternative that’s the bee’s knees.
The bee venom craze has been happening in Britain (those Brits, always ahead of the times) for over a year now, and it’s finally here. “Bee venom?” you ask. Notice how Duchess of Cornwall has been looking extremely fab these days? Well, it’s not just marital bliss. Camilla has been “stinging” her face for over five years. A BC product, Queen of The Hive introduces this bee-uty regimen to Canada with its Face Contour Mask. Safe to use daily, the venom relaxes one’s facial muscles just slightly enough to prevent deep line formation. (Don’t worry, no bees are harmed in the extracting process.) It will have you buzzing radiance. —Anya Georgijevic
