Say it with me now Pro-Pol-is! I know it looks and sounds weird, but wait til you hear what it is and what its used for! Propolis is something that I've been investigating for my its benefits in skincare and uses topically for skincare purposes. 

First off, its a bee by product, so one would argue that this is not a vegan product. Its made by bees, and is good for all skin types. It has moisturizing benefits for dry skin, antibacterial properties for acne-prone and oily skin, and anti-inflammatory properties for those with irritated skin. 

According to the National Institute of Health, Propolis is finding its way to be useful in dermatology. Propolis is also known to smooth out wrinkles, and has antiaging properties. A huge role is played here by antioxidants such as phenolic compounds and flavonoids which neutralize an unfavorable effect of free radicals on the skin. Bee glue lightens and smoothens the skin, reduces signs of fatigue and moisturizes. 

With all the things we're already putting on our faces, how do we know this is the right option for us? Is this better than Hyaluronic Acid you ask? So, hyaluronic acid is good for all skin types especially for those looking for hydration. Meanwhile propolis is mostly use for healing properties. It helps to heal damaged skin such as inflammation, sensitivity & poor skin barrier. Propolis is a great for acne-prone & for those need barrier care!

What are your thoughts on it? Would you use more bee byproducts?
