THIS GARDEN CRITTER COULD BE YOUR SECRET TO BEE-AUTIFUL HEALTHY SKIN
Sometimes the greatest discoveries are born from necessity. No mother wants to see their children in pain, so when Rebecca Brock’s little honey was experiencing severe skin problems, she thought to herself, “There must bee a better way!” That led to a discovery that has helped stop swarms of sufferers feeling the sting of skin irritation and, in turn, left Rebecca buzzing.
“I have three precious children, one of whom experienced quite severe skin irritation that left her uncomfortable and unhappy a lot of the time,” she says.
“She was red-raw from head to toe and after trying numerous eczema creams, steroids, natural products and even water, nothing seemed to clear or relieve her delicate skin. I was desperate to relieve her condition, so I began researching my own solution and that’s when I discovered the answer was in my own backyard: bees!
“That is how Palilco Bee Cosmetics was created — named after my children, Paige, Lilly and Cooper.”
After extensive research Rebecca found the properties in Australian honey and beeswax work naturally to soothe sore skin and as an added bonus, have a few other benefits too.
“Australian eucalyptus honey contains exceptional antibacterial properties and is bursting with antioxidants which help to slow down your visible signs of ageing,” she says.
“The beeswax is also incredible as it is high in anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties and possesses all the qualities associated with Vitamin A.
“Beeswax creates a physical barrier across your skin protecting it from all the toxins you encounter throughout your busy day, while still allowing your skin to breathe.”
For these reasons, using bee-products (that’s bee by-products, FYI) is popular.
Burt’s Bees has existed for more than 30 years and carries everything from moisturisers to lipsticks to exfoliants with a hive of followers who swear by its products.
Moisturising properties mixed with beeswax creates the perfect foundation for a long-lasting, natural lippy and they come in 12 shades too.
It’s safe to say bee or honey-based products are nothing new, but Palilco is really the first to focus strongly on bee-products for serious skin problems.
We all know someone who suffers from skin problems, be it eczema or psoriasis or dermatitis, and the common trait is they are constantly looking for a solution.
Bees may not seem like the most soothing solution, but it’s time to give them a go.
