As we all know Cleopatra was the queen of Egypt who ruled from 69 B.C.-30 B.C. One of the most mysterious women of her time she did have some beauty tricks up her sleeve. Hear are a few secrets that are inspired by the queen.
1. Skin- Milk & Honey Bath
It is rumored that Cleopatra had several beauty regimens that she faithfully used. The most notorious one is a Milk and Honey Bath. This fusion was known to moisturize the skin. For an everyday solution try Laura Mercier’s Almond Honey Coconut Bath.
2. Face- Rose Water Facial Toner
Rose water is known to tone the skin and its antioxidants and anti bacterial properties helps regenerates skin cells. So if you are in need of a boost try this invigorating facial toner from Burt’s Bee’s.
3.Hair- Honey & Oil
For years the combination of honey and oil have been known to repair damaged tresses by adding moisture. To make it yourself you can mix 6 tablespoons of coconut oil (you can also use olive oil or castor oil) and 3 tablespoons of honey. I like to warm my mixture up a bit and then add it to my hair from root to tip. Let it sit for 10-15 minutes then rinse thoroughly. If you want to skip that process purchase a bottle of Shea Moisture’s Manuka Honey Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Conditioner.
