Beauty Tips from Ancient History

1st September 2016

Before the days of endless eye shadows and unlimited lipstick shades, men and women of ancient civilisations relied on some very questionable beauty rituals to achieve the perfect look. However, you may not realise that some of those rituals and age-old ingredients are still around today in our favourite lotions, potions and make up.

There are so many beauty icons today, from the Kardashian clan to the catwalk, pop stars to movie stars; we’re spoiled for choice! There are countless social media accounts dedicated to tutorials on everything from how to plump your lips to how to exercise for maximum beauty benefits and many of them have been inspired by ancient idols like Nefertiti and Helen of Troy, the face that launched a thousand ships.

In this infographic we’ll show you some of the rituals used by Ancient Greeks, Romans, Indians and Egyptians and the modern day equivalent. We’ll also give you budget and high end options that you can seek out in today’s market, so that you too can reap the benefits of these ancient rituals.

Learn how Cleopatra bathed, how Herod the Great visited the first health spa and how Hippocrates liked to crush snails! Find your perfect adaptation of ancient rituals and take away your own tips on how to boost your beauty.
