History of Face Masks: Cleopatra

Hey, it’s Faria here to educate you guys a bit!

We are going to begin a history of face mask series on our blog. For our first blog, I want to talk about the most beautiful women in history – Cleopatra. She was one of the first people to use face masks.  As queen of Egypt, it was important for Cleopatra to maintain her beauty. It was said she used it to charm the likes of Julius Caesar and Marc Anthony. What was the key to her spectacular looks? Masks! Cleopatra used a myriad of ingredients for her face masks. For anti-aging, she used a mixture of aloe vera, beeswax, and Cyprus grass power. Another mask contained egg whites to completely revitalize and nourish her skin. Cleopatra also combined honey and aloe vera to create a soothing mask to rejuvenate her skin. Honey has many amazing effects on the skin. This ingredient helps to soothe wrinkles and also helps collagen cells develop. It is even said that she used a lime and oil mixture to help cleanse her face.

If you are looking for some face masks with the same ingredients that Cleopatra used, Beauteque has got you covered.
