Tips to keep skin bee-utifully clean, smooth and healthy

Cold winter air and low indoor humidity can set the stage for uncomfortably dry and irritated skin. If you’re prone to having chapped, cracked or rough skin, now is the time to get started on a plan to replenish the overall health of your body. Follow these tips, take advantage of our January 30% off sale on all beauty care products and stock up on some great supplies for winter.

We've made it our goal to be Minnesota’s trusted resource for beehive-based products. To that end, the beauty care products we offer are carefully selected for our customers. Hive-based ingredients - honey, propolis, beeswax, royal jelly and pollen - offer many healing benefits. We’re proud to feature products from these companies:

Beehive Botanicals * Crow’s
Savannah Bee Company * Welcome Harvest * Worker B

Start your skincare regimen today:

1 - Determine which skin areas need the most help
Is it your face, hands, feet, arms or legs? Are the areas dry, cracked or infected? The types of conditions and areas affected will determine your next steps.

2 - Start with an appropriate cleanser
Choose your soaps carefully; ones that will accomplish the task of removing dirt, oil, bacteria, etc. Facial skin will likely be more sensitive than the other areas, but again it depends on what you’ve assessed. It may be wise to use different soaps for different areas.

3 - Treat particularly affected areas
If there’s more than general dryness at stake, special attention may be warranted. Areas might include cuts, cracks, rashes and other sources of inflammation (i.e. acne). Choose the right product to address each area. Look for products with natural ingredients like honey, propolis and natural plant extracts that fight infection.

4 - Keep your skin moisturized
Low humidity can constantly deplete the moisture in your skin. Drink plenty of water and use an effective moisturizer on a daily basis - lips and skin.

Treat yourself and treat your skin with care. It will be worth the effort to reduce or prevent greater problems down the road. Let us know how we can help you select the right products for your skin.

P.S. Keep hands clean to prevent colds and related illnesses. Other seasonal favorites to stay healthy:
