Cleopatra was the Queen of Egypt who was known far and wide for her stunning beauty and electric personality. Probably the most renowned and eccentric skincare technique that she used as a strict beauty ritual was to regularly soak herself in baths consisting of milk mixed with pure almond oil and fresh honey.
Milk contains lactic acid, an effective alpha hydroxy acid. It helps to exfoliate your skin by breaking down dead skin cells and cleansing the skin down to its deepest layers. This allows for radiant skin to regenerate, giving it a healthy natural glow. The vitamin A & D also helps to achieve such smooth, supple skin.
Honey is a great natural anti-aging skincare product that contains a plethora of antibacterial ingredients and provides the skin with a boost of vitamins. By using fresh raw wild Tualang Honey, Gelam Honey, or Kelulut Honey as part of your bath recipe, you will have the best results because of their superior beneficial qualities such having the highest levels of antioxidants, amino acids, and enzymes. Tualang, Gelam and Kelulut honeys possess a wide variety of biological effects attributed to their physicochemical characteristics such as anti-oxidative, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and wound-healing properties.
Almond Oil can sooth dry skin, improve complexion, and skin tone. It's highly emollient, which means it helps to balance the absorption of moisture and water loss. It is antibacterial and full of vitamin A.
