Egyptian Milk Baths

Queen Cleopatra took milk baths regularly. Luckily you do not have to pour your milk into your bathtub instead of your cereal. Today many beauty products have the same ingredient that milk contains. That ingredient is called Alpha Hydroxy Acid. It is effective in exfoliating your skin to keep your skin smooth and soft.

Many lotions, bath soaps and bubble baths contain AHA, and can help you achieve the same benefits as a milk bath.


Honey Masks and Treatments

Honey was found on the mummies when they were excavated. The experts believe it was put on the dead to keep them unspoiled. It was quite effective in preserving the mummies. Honey is a humectant, which means that it can attract and maintain water. It also has antiseptic properties. It can keep the skin well hydrated and can be used on your face, skin and hair. You can smooth a thin layer of honey on your face and leave for thirty minutes before rinsing it off. Make sure you use pure honey, otherwise it may leave residue and stain your clothes, sheets and attract insects.

Honey can be also used for acne, scars, stretch marks, It is natural and a harmless alternative to harsh chemicals and peels....
