SkyNews.co.au: Beauty Secrets of a Duchess revealed
Monday November 28, 2011
Further revelations about Catherine's looks include that she undergoes regular bee sting facials on the recommendation of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
Known commonly as the organic alternative to Botox, the bee venom mask contains about one per cent venom and reportedly tricks the skin into thinking it has been stung, thus increasing blood flow, collagen and elasticity, The Mail [on Sunday] reported.
Mixed with manuka honey, shea butter, essential oils and a secret ingredient, fans of the mask include Kylie Minogue, Victoria Beckham and Michelle Pfeiffer. Both Catherine and Camilla are believed to undergo beauty treatments using the mask when therapists make discreet royal visits, The Mail said.
When asked of the routine, a Clarence House spokesman said: "I wouldn't comment on such a matter".

Women's Day August 2011
New Zealand Television Thursday 28th April 2011:
"Reports have surfaced today that Kate Middleton has been preparing for her big day by using the 'Bee Venom Mask, a skin treatment which involves applying a slightly stingy mix of New Zealand manuka honey and bee poison to your face."
NZ Herald Thursday 28th April 2011:
"Kate Middleton may have been using venom from New Zealand bees as a face treatment ahead of her wedding.
The royal bride is reported to have taken the beauty tip from Prince William's stepmother, the Duchess of Cornwall. The Bee Venom Mask, supposedly
an alternative to botox, was credited last year with making Camilla, 63, look years younger.
The cream, which is sold online and in specialist boutiques, is said to work by gently stinging the skin, leaving a tingling sensation and causing the body
to direct blood flow to the area. It claims to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which reduce wrinkles by relaxing and strengthening the muscles.
Beauty therapist Deborah Mitchell, who runs the Heaven salon in Shropshire, in the West Midlands, sources the venom from organic hives at Nelson Honey, in Tapawera, 30km south of Nelson. To extract the venom, a pane of glass is placed alongside the hive and a small electrical current is run through it, which encourages the insects to sting the surface. Tiny quantities of the venom are then collected and sent to Britain.
It costs £27,000 ($55,200) an ounce but the venom is diluted, to make it less painful to apply, to just 1 per cent of the mask. A 50ml jar costs £55 ($112).
The cream is also mixed with New Zealand Manuka honey, shea butter and rose and lavender oils. Used twice a day for 20 minutes, the bee treatment can apparently knock up to 10 years off facial appearance.
Ms Mitchell is also reported to treat other celebrities such as Dannii Minogue, Michelle Pfeiffer and Gwyneth Paltrow. Ms Mitchell has said: "The bee
venom completely changed Dannii Minogue and my other clients love it so much that we have waiting lists."
