Milk Bath – Cleopatra’s well kept beauty secret
For baths, Cleopatra used to mix milk of a young donkey with fresh honey and almond oil. This was her secret for soft and glowing skin.
To prepare this gorgeous milk and honey bath, mix half cup of honey with 3 cups of milk and add 5 tablespoons almond oil or olive oil instead, then pour this substance into your bath and make your skin gentle and silky!
Cleopatra’s Grape Facial
This facial is used mostly for over-tanned skin. To prepare it you need to crush the green grapes to a pulp, add the honey and mix it all together. Apply to a clean, damp face and leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse well.
Sea Salt Body and Face Scrub
Sea salt scrub was the natural scrub that she used to exfoliate her body and face. It is a great way to remove the dead skin cells and make your skin shiny, smooth and soft. It can be done after the relaxing milk bath.
Rose Water as a Facial Toner
Wipe your face with rose water every morning and every evening; use it, as a natural face toner. Rosewater will make your skin soft and smooth, naturally hydrating and nourishing it. You can also spray rose water on your face during the hot summer day, it will help refresh and hydrate your skin, keeping it soft and supple. Rosewater can be used on the face instead of makeup primer – your foundation will glide on your skin very smoothly and easily, and the wonderful odor is a great bonus!
Apple Cider Vinegar for Face Rinse
Vinegar has a tonic action that promotes blood circulation in the small capillaries that irrigate the skin, and it regulates the pH of the skin. Cleopatra knew that even back then, so she used apple cider vinegar to rinse her face. For the rinse you need 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar and 1 basin filled with warm water. Pour the apple cider vinegar into the warm water. Thoroughly splash your face with the rinse. And, then let your face dry without using a towel. Before you do this, be sure to start with a perfectly clean face!
Red Ochre For Lip Color and Antimony Sulphide for Eye Makeup
Red ochre and fat mixed together was used to color her lips, and Celery and hemp were combined for soothing her eyes. Antimony Sulphide was the black chemical she used to make her eyes, eyebrows and her lashes dark.
Henna as Nail Polish
Queen Cleopatra for her nails used natural nail polish, she dyed them with henna, which protects them and gives the fingernails a lovely reddish-brown color.
Honey Face Mask
Raw honey is incredible for your skin thanks to its antibacterial properties and a hefty serving of skin-saving antioxidants. It has many skin properties: prevents and treats acne, slows down skin aging, is extremely moisturizing and soothing, so it helps create a glow and it opens up pores making them easy to unclog.
Cleopatra’s Treatment for Damaged Hair
Mix 3 table spoons of honey with 1 table spoon of castor oil (if you don’t have castor oil – olive oil will do), apply this substance on your freshly washed hair and let it soak in for 5-15 minutes, then rinse. This natural hair treatment helps to repair damaged hair, giving it more shine and softness.
Face Cream of Cleopatra
Amazing face cream for every skin. You will need: 2 tablespoons of aloe vera juice, 4 drops of rose essential oil, 1 tablespoon of almond oil and 2 spoons of beeswax. Heat the beeswax and the almond oil until the substance gets liquid, then add the rest of the ingredients. You can add vitamin E. After the cream cools down, you can put it into your fridge. It can last for about a week.

Why does everyone need to make everything about race? She probably used those pictures of takes on Cleopatra because those are the most accessible being that most of them are fromm movies. Just because there aren’t many pictures of black takes on Cleopatra doesn’t mean they want to whitewash history or that ten are racist.
Not all Egyptian are black the north people are white like Italian people . As you know she was very beautiful that is why Julius Ceaser lovers heels and after his death Antonyo loved her. Sheikspear wrote his play about them “Atony and Caleopatra.
All I know is, if Cleopatra was so beautiful…she had to have come from African ancestry. Which is why Antony loved her so, (those of African descent take exotic beauty to another level), that and of course Antony being white, well….white men have a history of lusting after black women to the point of rape. Either way, the so called “historians”, really crack me up, trying to change history and nature itself, fleeing all common sense, to make this woman white. Smh, tisk, tisk, tisk, shame on you for backing up such fallacies.
Racism is alive and well! But remember that every race can be racist… Maybe someone needs to take a long look in the mirror “it takes one to know one”
Actually, I’ve read that Cleopatra was not particularly beautiful, but rather her quality was that she was extremely sensual. No doubt she mastered the arts of cosmetics and skincare as well as seduction.
Unfortunately for everyone who looked at this website in the hopes that they could be as “beautiful” as Cleopatra. Hate to tell you this but she is not as beautiful as you think. Now before you ask me how I know, go to google images and search Cleopatra on a egyptien coin and there you will find a life like picture of her. They had to put her real face in the coin so people knew it was the real currency. Now that you’ve seen that picture its safe to say that yes, she might of been pretty for that time period. But the beauty of one century is different from the other and if she where to be here in 2016 people would call her ugly. These tips do work for better skin etc but please dont let movies from Hollywood convince you that she looked like Angelina Jolie.
Angelina Jolie is anorexic and has hi shapeless huge lips that cover most of her face. She is not beautiful. Monica Bellucci on the other hand is mind-blowing
I agree but she’s a Nice person
Geez…could this entire review section be more pointless? The article is about beauty secrets and techniques. How about some input and opinion about that?
I don’t know, I’m kind of having fun watching people nitpick tangent topics.
It would be nice to have money to blow on raw milk to bathe in
Also, anybody know of a good place to buy rosewater? Or how to make?
Get some roses, peel them boil the color out of them then let cool then strain. Put in spray bottle store in fridge.
Why is there so much emphasis on Cleopatra being white? Does it even matter if she was Greek,Indian,BLACK!!! or Chinese? What difference does it make? Beauty has no race, there are very beautiful white people and very beautiful black people and then you get the ugly ones, white and black. So……..? Lets get back to the beauty secrets.
All of these comments with maybe the exception of two are absolutely f****ing ridiculous . You can find beauty in every person if you look for it ,man or woman and race is not a factor .
