Cleopatra’s Beauty Routine
According to many historical accounts, Cleopatra was a queen of “unsurpassing beauty”. Some of today’s historians have begun to question how much of this is true, but there is no question that she definitely had her share of feminine charms, cleverness, and a love of luxury. She was ahead of her time in understanding the value of the Dead Sea for beauty and health, which is why she persuaded Mark Antony to present it to her as a gift.
The World’s First Spa?
Some of the stories about Cleopatra imply that she used her femininity as a weapon to get what she wanted from men like Julius Caesar and Marc Antony. To maintain her beauty, according to legend, she was particular about caring for her skin with milk baths and salt scrubs. When Marc Antony gave her the title to the Dead Sea area, some accounts claim that she ordered an early version of skin care companies to be built in the area, and she used the therapeutic mud and waters as part of her own personal beauty regimen.
A Dash of Salt for the Skin
Although she didn’t have the science we have today to tell her how to keep her skin glowing, Cleopatra must have had an instinct that told her that regular exfoliation would rejuvenate her skin. She probably had no idea that the Dead Sea minerals would remove the toxins from her system, but she found that the salts were very effective in making her skin smooth and soft.
Although Dead Sea Premier wasn’t founded by Cleopatra, she would undoubtedly approve of the Dead Sea products the company manufactures. The Aromatic Salt Scrub would likely be one of her favorites. She might remain blissfully unaware of the fact that the process involves removing the dead skin cells to keep her skin bright and new, but she would certainly appreciate the convenience of having a jar of her own Dead Sea salts at her fingertips.
