As we all know, bee pollen is a substance full of benefits. Did you know skin is one of those benefits?
That’s right, bee pollen can help you achieve healthier skin. It doesn’t matter if your skin is full of wrinkles or it’s just overly dry, bee pollen can help.
Though it is full of life changing ingredients, zinc, Vitamins C & E and omega fatty acids are the main 3 that aid in helping you accomplish healthier skin. Lets briefly talk about each one.
Vitamins C & E
Bee pollen has just about every vitamin you can think of it. However, it is Vitamins C & E that protect your skin against harmful UV rays which are the main cause of wrinkles.
Omega Fatty Acids
There are two common omega fatty acids. Omega-3 and Omega-6. Acne develops when you have too much Omega-6. The key is having the right balance of both fatty acids in your system. With bee pollen you will get a equal amount of both Omega-6 and Omega-3 which will help to eliminate acne.
Zinc is a very important mineral that the body needs. If you don’t have enough or you have too much, you could experience a serious bout of acne. It also has antioxidants in it that help slow the aging of skin.
Facial Bee Pollen Cream
And for all you ladies who love to get a facial, this is the way to go. You can actually make a bee pollen facial right from the comfort of your home that will do wonders on your skin.
Here are the ingredients:
- ripe avocado
- 1 TBSP pure honey
- cup whole milk
- 2 TBSP Bee Pollen Granules
Take all the ingredients and blend them together. Wash your face before applying the mask. Leave it on for about 20 minutes and then rinse with warm water. Pat your face dry and go on about your day. This will help to protect your skin and keep it looking vibrant.
Why You Should Only Buy From Reputable Companies
And just a quick tip before I let you go. There are many suppliers of bee pollen out there so please be careful. Some companies do not properly harvest and preserve the pollen which means you won’t get the full affect if any at all. One reputable company is Xtend-Life. They harvest their bee pollen from New Zealand and they freeze dry it during preservation so it can retain all of its nutritional value.
