The Egyptians have always been ahead of the rest of the world in numerous aspects. While the world was trying to figure out ways to layout roads that are easy to commute, the Egyptians were already building pyramids that stand the test of time. However, their knowledge was not just limited to city planning and construction.

The beauty secrets and anti-aging treatments they used were time-tested, too, and are relevant to this day. So, here are five beauty tips from the Egyptians that would help you slow down the process of aging. And the best part is that most of these ingredients are available at home and wouldn’t cost you a bomb. So, go on and try these tips and pamper yourself.

Aloe Vera

The beautiful Egyptian queen, the epitome of beauty, Cleopatra, made this a key ingredient in her beauty regime. Aloe vera is rich in skin tightening properties. It nourishes your skin from deep within, moisturizes it, and restores the elasticity. All these fight the skins of aging like wrinkles and spots, making you look radiant.

So, make sure you get your skin; it’s a daily dose of aloe vera. While it is always best to scoop out some gel from a fresh aloe vera plant, you could also buy an over the counter product. However, make sure it is fresh and without any chemicals added to it. Remember, aloe vera as a stand-alone product is enough to make you look pretty. It does not need any add-on chemicals to add to your beauty. So, always go for the organic version of the product.


Myrrh is a potent but less popular ingredient from the Egyptian beauty world. While the Egyptians widely use it, we call it less popular as the rest of the world seems to be unaware of Myrrh’s wonders and its anti-aging properties. Myrrh is nothing but the resin from a few fragrant trees and has numerous uses in Egyptian medicine, incense, and perfumery.

Besides being famous for its use as an analgesic, it is also useful in treating ulcers, colds, arthritis pain, syphilis, and spasms. However, let us discuss the main usage of it and how it can help you look flawless. Myrrh is rich in Natural Vitamins A, B, C, D, and K besides being a great source of nutrients like Potassium, Calcium, and Magnesium. Regular application of Myrrh to the face rejuvenates it, heals the wounds, and prevents wrinkles. Massage it regularly to improve your skin’s circulation, complexion, and firmness.

Rose Water

Include it in your beauty kit both for the aroma and the wonders it does to your skin. Rich in astringent properties, regular application of rose water can do wonders to your face. Rose water is also a great remedy for the elastase and collagenase, which causes harm to your skin.

Besides that, it is also a potent remedy for redness, irritation, spots, and fine lines on your skin. And the best part is, you do not need to visit a spa to treat yourself to some rose water therapy. It not just reduces the fine lines and wrinkles, but also helps you look fresh as a rosebud all day long!
