The benefits of royal jelly in your beauty routine

  • Promotes skin hydration and elasticity: The high lipid content of royal jelly is amazing for keeping skin plump, moisturized, and bouncy. “Royal jelly is highly moisturizing and affects hydration of the stratum corneum by retaining water in it. In consequence, the skin becomes more elastic.
  • Encourages collagen production: Royal jelly contains an overachieving acid called 10-hydroxy-trans-2-decenoic acid, which “stimulates fibroblast production in collagen. By increasing skin collagen production, royal jelly can help treat and prevent fine lines, wrinkles, and skin sagging.
  • Fights inflammation: Dealing with uncomfy symptoms like swelling, itching, and redness? Royal jelly helped relieve skin conditions like atopic dermatitis and skin inflammation in mice. Try it on skin irritation and sunburns!
  • Speeds healing of acne and other wounds: Royal jelly not only has an anti-inflammatory effect, but it also keeps bacteria at bay. When applied to skin ulcers, burns, and shingles, royal jelly produces “strong antimicrobial activity within skin tissue,” Koestline says. It also helps reduce the redness and speed up healing of acne wounds.
  • Brightens dark spots: The same acid in royal jelly that boosts collagen production also suppresses skin pigmentation, which means it can help fade melasma and dark spots caused by acne and sun exposure, Koestline advises. Bonus: Royal jelly can help prevent hyperpigmentation from forming in the first place.
  • May regulate oil production: Suffer from oily skin? Try using royal jelly to balance your complexion. “For people with oily, acned skin, [royal jelly] is found to help normalize sebum production,” Koestline says. 
  • May have antioxidant effects: Research indicates that the phenolic acid in royal jelly may counteract skin aging. (Koestline says she believes the antioxidant effects of royal jelly are “hyperbolized.”)
  • Delay skin aging.
  • Strengthen your skin barrier through collagen production.
  • Revitalize your body through the activation of blood circulation.
  • Inhibit bacteria and fungi on your skin thanks to its antiseptic properties.
