The Queen of Egypt, Cleopatra, and her Beauty Secrets:
Cleopatra was one of the most famous women in the world. She was the last pharaoh of Egypt and ruled for roughly 20 years from 51 BC to 30 BC. Her beauty secrets were a mystery to everyone, but now we have finally been able to decode them.
One of these secrets were Cleopatra’s Baths. What is a Cleopatra’s Bath? Cleopatra’s bath is a luxurious spa-like experience that is meant to rejuvenate the skin and wellbeing.
Cleopatra would start her skin care ritual by bathing with a mixture of fresh milk and honey. This helped to soothe and cleanse the skin while also nourishing it with proteins, vitamins, and minerals. The ruler would then go on to anoint herself with oils of lavender and myrrh while rubbing sweet almond oil into her hands. Cleopatra would then use a cucumber-based eye cream which helped to depuff the eyes while cooling them down after long hours in the sun and wind.
Cleopatra bathed in a special mixture of oils from plants such as rose and lavender, donkeys’ milk, herbs and honey. This mixture created a youthful glow in her skin.
Today, Cleopatra’s bath routine has been recreated in modern-day versions that use a combination of skin-loving ingredients to produce the same youthful glow. These ingredients include Goat’s milk, Dead Sea salts, Manuka honey and essential oils such as rose oil and lavender oil.
Benefits of the modern Cleopatra’s bath:
Goat’s milk offers many benefits. It is very moisturizing, and it contains lactic acid which helps reduce dryness by eliminating dead skin cells. It also contains anti-inflammatory properties which are great for reducing itchiness and irritation caused by eczema or acne breakouts. Goat’s milk contains vitamins such as A, D & E which will help maintain healthy skin.
Dead Sea salts are magnesium-rich, and magnesium helps with relaxation and stress relief. Dead sea salts can also provide relief from chronic pain and muscular problems.
Honey baths have a number of benefits – from soothing the skin to healing wounds. If you have skin problems, the honey will help soothe any irritations and can even help boost your immune system.
