Ageless Skin- Starts Right Here

I feel like I am constantly in a battle with my skin.  Acne has definitely been something that I have been struggling with since I have been really young.

So for years now I have been using all different types of skin care to try and help my skin. A while back I wrote a blog post on a the VLCC skin care brand ( click here for the blog post). It was definitely the best thing that I was using at that point in time. It had everything; sunscreen + herbal ingredients that were great for my sensitive skin.

But for a few years I have been hearing about “Bee Venom” and how good it is for your skin. It eliminates signs of ageing and reduces the appearance of scars. Bee venom does this by “tricking” your body into thinking that it has been stung by a bee therefore your body increases bloody flow to your skin in order to “repair” it. This helps your skin to get plumped up again and wrinkles and scars reducing in appearance. It is definitely something that I was very keen to start trying in my early 20’s as this was my time to start thinking of preventions for an ageing skin. (Yes ladies, if we wanna look like we are 20 when we are in our 50’s; we had got to start our “anti-ageing” skin care when we are 20).


I came across BeeBio when I was going through duty free to Melbourne. I looked at this mask for a good thirty minutes and weighed up if it was good enough for my skin or not. This particular product from BeeBio is called “Active 16+ Manuka Honey & Bee Venom Venomous Masque” and is actually a face mask that I use as a moisturiser. Out of all their products, this had the most natural and beneficial ingredients for healing skin.

The percentage of bee venom in this mask is a lot lower a product that is primarily bee venom. The important ingredient in this is the 16+ Manuka Honey, which is another great healing agent for acne and skin ageing. There are also a lot of antioxidants in this mask that help with the whole process. When I was going to Melbourne, my skin was inflamed with acne, within five days of using this, the redness reduced and the “bumpiness” of my acne reduced. Its been about two months now since I have been using the mask and my skin is SUPER smooth and absolutely no redness.

How to apply:

  1. Apply your daily face sunscreen ( next blog on this soon)
  2. Take a small amount of the BeeBio Face Masque and apply a thin layer all over your face.
  3. Try and focus on the areas of concern and massage it in properly around there.

This can also be used as an actual mask (as suggested by the name). So apply a thicker layer on and leave it on for 20-30 minutes and rinse off.

Hope this post was as helpful.

If there is an event coming up that you are hosting, it is always a nice idea to get creative with your decorations, and where possible get more hands on and create something yourself!. In this blog post I will be sharing a simple DIY trick with rice and food color to create a vibrant decoration.

Colored Rice :

  • 1 cup of rice for each color(the cheapest that you could find ; I found 1kg rice for $2 at Pak ‘n’ Save)
  • food coloring (which ever color you want your rice to be)
  • 1/2 tsp of white vinegar for each color
  • zip lock sandwich bags
  • a tray to dry your rice
  1. Add a few drops of food coloring to the vinegar and mix it together
  2. Place the cup of rice in the zip lock bag
  3. Add vinegar color mix to the rice
  4. Zip up the bag of rice and shake the bag until all the rice is colored
  5. Tip it out onto the tray and leave it overnight to dry

Ways to use colored rice for Deco:

Colored rice can be stuck onto cut pieces of shaped card board and used as centre pieces for tables. Or it can be used loose as table decorations or floor decorations. Here are some pictures of how I used my colored rice.

This is a fun and easy task, you can always get kids involved in this as well. The best thing is that the rice doesn’t have to go to waste. You can always pack them away into separate ziplock bags and re-use them for another event!
