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.

1. Slough away dead cells to reveal softer, more luminous skin. Even if you already use a physical exfoliator (a formula boasting scrubbing beads to buff your complexion), adding a chemical exfoliator to your regimen will make a big difference in the look and feel of your skin. Once a week (or twice, depending on how sensitive your skin is), skip using your usual serum or moisturizer, and replace it with a leave-on chemical exfoliator, like Le Weekend De Chanel Weekly Renewing Face Care, which uses ingredients like glycolic acid to exfoliate your skin deeply, cleansing your pores of dirt, oil, bacteria, and debris that can lead to breakouts, and rose water to help calm the skin as the exfoliator does its work. Just remember to apply sunscreen immediately afterward, since it will make your skin sensitive to the sun's rays.
