  • BEE VENOM INFUSED SKIN CARE – in case you haven’t notice yet, Koreans are obsessed with looking super young. Their secret, it seems like, is using bee venom infused skin care products. Bee venom in skin care triggers the production of collagen and relaxes facial muscles which reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Many like to think of bee venom as the natural Botox, too. You can choose your bee venom infused products here.
