2. Beautiful Soft Skin

Although you might get different answers from different women depending on where they come from and their age, if you were to ask who the most beautiful woman in history was, many women will undoubtable say it was Cleopatra. During her time in the first century B.C., Cleopatra was known for taking milk baths as her primary skin treatment. Of course, she used to use donkey milk, something most of us cannot obtain in sufficient quantities to bathe in today, but you can still enjoy milk baths. Since cow’s milk contains lactic acid as well as alpha hydroxyl acid, it only makes sense that it will give you beautifully soft skin. Both of these acids dissolve the proteins that hold together dead skin cells. Feel like Cleopatra and add a quart of milk to a warm bath several times each week.

 

3. Fight Wrinkles

You might think that poor women in ancient times had virtually no recourse when it came to wrinkles. But the truth is that ancient ladies had a great many options available to them. Most women consumed mushrooms for this purpose. How they knew we don’t know, but mushrooms have powerful rejuvenating effects on the entire body, including the skin. In Greece, roses were added to bathwater to help treat skin problems, and in China, women consumed a tree fungus called ganoderma, which fights free radical damage.

 

4. More Remedies for Beautiful Skin

It seems like women everywhere were worried about keeping their beautiful skin beautiful for as long as possible. The Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians used to use water from the Dead Sea to wash their faces. Modern science confirms that, with its 29 percent sea salt level (most other oceans only have a 4 percent salt makeup), the waters and salts from the Dead Sea can work miracles on the skin. Studies have shown that using Dead Sea Salts on the face can cause a 40 percent reduction in the depth of wrinkles. Dead Sea Salts also are high in magnesium, which is excellent for all types of skin problems. Look for masks that contain Dead Sea salts for less deep wrinkles and a truly beautiful complexion.
