Homeopathic Beauty tips
CLEOPATRAS MILK BATH
Cleopatra, the last pharaoh of Ancient Egypt, was renowned throughout history for her radiant skin and her stunning beauty. She was said to bathe in milk to keep her skin soft and beautiful. Poppaea Sabina (30 – 65 AD), Emperor Nero’s second wife, was also a fan of the milk bath. She was once told that in donkey’s milk “lurked a magic which would dispel all diseases and blights from your beauty”.
Alpha Hydroxy Acids
So why is milk such a great natural ingredient for skincare? Milk contains lactic acid, which is an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA). You may have heard about AHAs. They have been part of an ongoing craze of the skincare industry for several years. They are either sourced from natural ingredients such as milk or they are synthesised in a laboratory. AHAs penetrate the top layers of the skin to slough off dead skin cells. Exfoliation stimulates the skin and healthy cells are regenerated. Using AHAs in your skincare allows the skin to rejuvenate itself more quickly.
Cleopatra’s Milk & Honey Bath Soak
- 2 tbsp local honey
- 100ml organic full fat milk
- Handful of rose petals (optional)
Gently warm the milk and honey, until the honey dissolves fully into the milk. Do not bring to the boil and then allow the mixture to cool.
Pour the milk and honey soak into the hot bath water and scatter rose petals in the bath. Lie back in the bath, relax and gently rub your skin with a damp washcloth to remove dead skin cells. Rinse your body afterwards.
Components of Manuka Honey
Manuka Honey is produced in New Zealand by bees that pollinate the native manuka bush. It is used in both traditional and modern medicine for its natural antibacterial properties. In addition to containing hydrogen peroxide, MH is high in the antibacterial methylglyoxal (MG). MG is found in most types of honey in small quantities. However, MH contains up to 100 times more MG than normal honey.
works wonders for blemished skin because of its aforementioned natural antibacterial properties. It is also a potent anti-inflammatory, so soothes inflamed skin while healing blemishes. It also helps balance the skin’s pH and contains amino acids which slough away dead skin cells, helping to keep pores clear. In other words: this sticky-sweet substance is your problem skin’s best friend (or worst enemy, depending on which way you want to look at it).
Manuka acne mask Steam your skin, pay dry and apply a thin layer of manuka blended with a pinch of cinnamon. Leave on for 20 minutes and gently wipe off. Close pores after by rinsing with cold water. Use the same mixture as a spot treatment and leave on overnight to see blemishes disappear.
