PRIMP LIKE AN EGYPTIAN
Anyone who’s ever liberally lined their lashes or chilled out in a milk bath knows the natural beauty secrets of Ancient Egypt are legendary. In fact, many of the top secret ingredients are still used today.
Below, we present a history lesson for the beauty books:
Milk: Credit Cleopatra (known for her love of milk baths) for this dairy special beauty remedy. Milk, which contains lactic acid will exfoliate your dead skin cells, and leave you with super soft skin. Try Madara’s Ecoface Delicate Cleansing Milk with lactic acid from milk to gently cleanse away dirt and impurities.
Black Cumin essential oil: Ancient Egyptians used essential oils to keep hair healthy and prevent pests such as head lice. The oil of black cumin protects the scalp from sun while conditioning and stimulating hair growth. Intelligent Nutrients uses black cumin seed oil in many products, including USDA Spray-On Detangler. This organic detangler conditions hair while attacking knots.
Clay: In ancient Egypt, both men and women wore makeup to look more beautiful and enhance the face. Red or pink clay was used to give color to the cheeks or lips. Nvey Eco uses kaolin clay for color and coverage with their Organic Compact Powder. With nourishing oils and clay, skin absorbs oil and provides a light smooth texture.
Neroli Oil: Sweet and intoxicating, the aroma of neroli or orange blossom is unforgettable. It has been said that Cleopatra soaked the sails of her ships with the scent of neroli before she set sail to Rome to seduce Mark Anthony. For a little seduction of your own, try Tsi La’s Fleur Savage Perfume.
