Cleopatra was said to bathe in milk to make her complexion flawless.
Cleopatra wasn’t the ravishing beauty that Hollywood has made us believe. The Greek historian Plutarch describes her alleged exoticism as “itself neither altogether incomparable, nor such as to strike those who saw her,” but the legend of her radiant skin is anything but a myth. To achieve such smooth, supple skin, Cleopatra regularly soaked in milk baths, a luxury befitting only a queen; in today’s economy, milk isn’t cheap, and very few people without claim to a throne, crown, and royal subjects can afford such an indulgence. But even though a true milk bath is out of the question for regular folks like us, the concept, and other all natural ingredients with properties similar to skin(soothing milk) is not.
