Kate Middleton's Sweet Beauty Secret: Honey
Tue 05-02-2013

The Duchess of Cambridge revealed she was a fan of facialist Deborah Mitchell's bee venom facials!

According to the Daily Mail, ever since Kate Middleton revealed her beauty secret, honey has been a buzz word in the beauty industry.

And Kate isn't the only fan. Les Miserables star Anne Hathaway uses a propolis based spritz on her face, Epicuren Brazilian Rainforest Propolis Mist, a resinous tree-sap-based substance used by bees to repair their nests.

Actress Scarlett Johansson uses honey as a face mask and models Erin O'Connor and Lizzy Jagger use Manuka Lip Balm, which is rich in bacteria-fighting chemicals.

Honey's healing properties are backed up by serious research. Studies show it helps acne, eczema and psoriasis, and aids the treatment of deep wounds.
