Cleopatra's looks and her charm were worth dying for.
Here are some of her best beauty hacks that'll turn you into a timeless beauty (just like Queen Cleo!)
1. Milk and Honey Bath
Cleopatra's best known beauty tip is her milk and honey bath. Both of these ingredients exfoliate and moisturize the skin, leaving it smelling sweet and fresh. You can prepare it yourself by adding 2 cups of milk and 1/2 cup honey to your bath.
2. Sea Salt Body and Face Scrub
Cleopatra's servants used to massage her body with a thick scrub made of sea salt. Queen C believed that rubbing this mixture on your body would remove the dead skin and make your skin look radiant.
You can make your own mixture by adding 2 tablespoons sea salt to 3 tablespoons thick cream. Use it after the milk bath for best results.
3. Celery and Hemp for Eye Care
The ancient Queen used celery and hemp to make her eyes look bright. But cucumber should do the job too! Just cut some slices of cucumber and put it on your eyes, or dip some cotton balls in cucumber juice and you're good to go!
4. Queen Cleo's remedy for damaged hair
Mix 3 tablespoon honey with 1 tablespoon of castor oil, apply this mixture to your freshly washed hair and let it soak for about 10-12 mins and then wash. This natural treatment helps bring damaged hair back to life.
5. White Clay Face Mask
This is what you need to do to get flawless skin like Queen C's: Mix white clay, honey, milk and olive oil. Apply the mask for 15 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water. Voila! Say hello to radiant skin!
6. Rose Water as a facial toner
The queen LOVED using rose water as a facial toner. Rose water is a natural, hydrating element. All you need to do is wipe your face twice a day - in the morning and evening or just keep it in a bottle and spritz it over your face as a wake up call! The sweet smell sure is a bonus.
7. Apple Cider Rinse
Vinegar is known to increase the blood circulation in the capillaries, which leaves you with a lovely, natural blush. All you need for this remedy is a basin full of lukewarm water and 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar. Splash your face thoroughly with the rinse, and let your face dry naturally, without using a towel. Make sure to wash your face before the rinse.
8. Grape Facial Rinse
Usually used for over-tanned skin, this facial needs crushed green grapes and some honey. Apply the mix on your face and leave it on for 9-12 mins. Rinse thoroughly.
