I am a licensed aesthetician who cares about the wellness and relaxation of my clients. I like to provide more than superficial beauty (but it doesn't mean that I don't like nail art and designs). I work out of my home (walkout basement with separate entrance for clients) so there is no unnecessary cost added except high standards of safety precautions and quality products.

Cleopatra milk bath

Here are some of the beauty secrets from Ancient Egypt that proved efficiency up till today.

Milk Bath, probably you heard these days about the alpha hydroxy acid and its effect as a chemical exfoliant that eats dead skin. It is one of the major ingredients in many skin products sold in the market today. Queen Cleopatra symbol of beauty used to take a Milk bath every day.

One day I had the pleasure of visiting one of her baths in Marsa Matrouh, Egypt. It is located there in the sea, it is a beautiful engraved swimming pool in a huge rock, where fresh seawater enters from the one side and exits from the other. The remains of the chair where Cleopatra would sit at the centre of the bath can still be seen today. It was such a feeling of belonging to a great nation like the ancient Egyptians.
