Luxury Swiss skin care line Valmont is the spa's product range of choice, and several of the label's anti-aging creations use "Alpine bee pollen, honey, royal jelly, and nectar from beehives preserved at the hotel's own 'Airelles Apiary.'" Apparently, your favourite tea sweetener can also be used to ward off wrinkles.
Striving to make pollen palatable to the bee-averse, a "Bee Beautiful" treatment is available for a limited time. The service starts with an exfoliant made of wildflower pollen and ends with a royal jelly rub down, a relaxation-inducing experience meant to leave skin glowing, and you feeling like—what else?—the Queen Bee. Surely winter time skiers will welcome sloughing of dry skin after a day circling the lifts.
You can book "Bee Beautiful" from December 14th through mid-April of 2012 for 240 euros. While it all sounds divine, the price stings a little.
