Known for her beauty and charm, Cleopatra rose to power and quickly became a living legend among the people and even to this day, most people know of the beautiful and fabled woman, who broke the hearts of the most powerful men in Ancient history. What were her secrets?
Castor Oil was one of the favorites of the Empress. She used the oil to preserve her youth and fight wrinkles, as well as make the hair luscious and soft.
Honey Masks and Soap Paste was another beauty secret that Cleopatra was known for using. With its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, honey is still a wonder powerhouse, popular in many skincare and beauty products.
Dead Sea Salt was widely used , especially by the Queen herself, to exfoliate her skin and replenish the minerals lost during the hot, Egyptian days ( and nights ). Want to try a Cleopatra-inspired scrub at home? Mix 2 table spoons of dead sea salt and 3 tablespoons of thick cream ( preferably , natural). Apply to your skin and massage in circular motion to exfoliate. It is usually not used on the face skin, because it is a little rough, but perfect to cleanse the body.
Another product you can try at home to achieve beautiful, shining locks, is a hair mask of Cleopatra. Whip 3 eggs and mix with some warm water, apply to wet hair, keep on for about 15-20 minutes and rinse. Voila! You have a head of Queen-worthy , rejuvenated locks.
