New Product from Dr. Bee

The reason I am dealing with those products from Dr. Bee, as I am benefiting from them very much. Also, my family and friends have been using Dr. Bee products and they have also enjoyed them. My favourite is their Blueberry Grape Shampoo Bar which has helped me limit hair loss during washing and gain healthly hair again. I really appreciate it.


Please go to the Dr. Bee website for more information, Serge and Sew can order everything from the website for you to save the shipping fee. Thank you!


We currently have the Multipurpose Balm and Blueberry Grape Shampoo Bar in stock.

Effects of Summer on the Skin

  • Increased UV Exposure: With higher sun intensity, the risk of sunburns, premature aging, dark spots, and skin cancer escalates due to heightened UV radiation exposure.
  • Dehydration: Hot temperatures and perspiration can deplete the skin's moisture levels, leading to dull and dry skin.
  • Heat Rashes: Heat and sweating can trigger uncomfortable heat rashes, characterized by red bumps or blisters that may be itchy.
  • Skin Sensitivity: The combination of these factors can make the skin more sensitive, resulting in redness, irritations, or allergic reactions.
