DID CLEOPATRA STRUGGLE WITH ACNE?
We might not have an army of beauticians like Cleopatra, the Egyptian Queen who is famously well known as one of the most beautiful women in human history. For centuries women and men have admired her beauty, her talents in music, dancing and even her amazing skill of learning seven languages.
She could turn the heads of men even the powerful Emperor Julius Cesar who brought her to Rome to live with him up until his murder. When she left Rome, her influence did not leave with her. She left behind her exotic hairstyles and pear jewelry which became fashion trends known as the “Cleopatra Look”.
What were her beauty secrets that won men's hearts from around the world?
One of Cleopatra’s incredible and amazing full body secrets was to immerse herself in a bath of milk and honey. For an even better effect on her beauty bath, Cleopatra’s servants would massage her body with a natural cleansing body scrub that was applied to her skin by rubbing it in circular motions. This scrub would gently exfoliate her skin to make her skin radiate and have a silky smooth feeling after her bath.
You will feel the same with our Massage Glo's sisel skin exfoliator and our loofah face scrub. We have made them with natural fibers that do not scratch the skin. It removes the dead skin, which improves the look of the skin, providing more oxygen and improved blood flow. It can be an amazing addition before you enter into your own “Cleopatra” milk bath.
Here is your Basic Milk and Honey Bath. Enjoy!
1 to 2 cups (240 to 475 Milliliters) Whole Milk
½ cup (175 grams) Honey
5 Tablespoons Almond Oil (or Olive Oil)
Fill a large jar with 1 to 2 cups (240 to 475 milliliters) of milk. Whole milk will be more moisturizing than low-fat or nonfat milk
Add ½ cup (175 grams) honey for extra moisture. Honey is also antibacterial, and great at reducing acne.
Add 5 Tablespoons of the Oil of your choice.
Close the jar and shake it to mix. If necessary, open the jar, and stir the milk and honey with a spoon. You want the honey to dissolve in the milk, and not settle at the bottom.
Fill your tub with warm water. Avoid using water that is too hot, or it will destroy the beneficial properties of the honey.
Pour the milk and honey mixture under the running water. Once the tub is full to your liking, swish your hand to combine the milk-and-honey mixture.
Slide into the tub, and soak for no more than 20 minutes. Do not use any soap in this bath. When you are finished rinse yourself off with fresh water.
Did Cleopatra have acne? With her ‘round the clock beauticians using natural materials I think any blemishes or acne quaked in fear of even trying to go near this goddess queen.
