What Do Kate Middleton And Gwyneth Paltrow Have In Common? Bee Venom

As the royal princess of everlasting youth and beauty, Goop Province, it's no surprise that Gwyneth Paltrow should feel a certain kinship to actual princess-to-be Kate Middleton. Now, they have something else to bond over while lounging on a pile of pale blue cashmere sweaters and drinking imported teas (that's what fancy people do, right?): rubbing bee venom on their face. Fun!
We already knew Gwyneth was a fan of this dangerous-sounding but supposedly effective, natural alternative to Botox, but apparently Kate Middleton is also jumping on board the sting wagon. Aside from making frequent visits to the Bobbi Brown counter, the duchess of Cambridge reportedly uses venom-based creams and other products to keep her skin looking taut and flawless. We gotta hand it to her — it seems to be working. (The Huffington Post)
If money (and possibly painkillers) were no object, would you try this scary-sounding beauty treatment?
