Even in the ancient times, people strived for beauty with whichever limited ingredients they had. But it’s really amazing how even after years those ancient secrets still work. So here is a magical list which will make you glow from within.
1. Olive oil.
This was rightly called ‘Golden’ by the ancient people. It has many secrets. And now if you check, the base for many skin and hair care products consist of olive oil.
Yes you heard that right. The bath, which you think of as insignificant and skip most of the days adds a lot to your beauty regime. Ancient Roman women used to spend several hours bathing in hot and cold water alternatively
3. Aromatherapy massage.
This no longer falls under secrets. We know how much massage is important for our body and mind. And that little aroma and works like magic.
4. Textured fabric instead of a scrub.
There’s nothing against scrub. It just means that textured fabric would be enough to remove the dead skin cells. As in ancient times when scrub wasn’t invented, people did the same thing.
Instead of wax, sugar can also be used for hair removal. And amazingly it has a more long-lasting effect.
6. Rose and cream balm.
Some roses added to normal moisturizing cream works like wonder for the softest skin.
7. Honey masks.
Honey has multiple purposes. If you are wondering about anti cellulite massage, it’s as easy as killing a mosquito. Apply honey on the troubled area, press your palm against it and remove quickly.
8. Henna and bhasma.
The ancient people have long known the secrets of these two products. They applied these for long and strong hair and also to get a desired colour.

The beauty of women lies in their long, shiny hair. And that is why eggs are their favourite. With its nourishing properties, eggs are a blessing for hair.
10. Cabbage leaves.
This was the best remedy for breastfeeding mothers. Who knew these cabbage secrets! Apparently they have soothing properties which helps in relieving the pain and inflammation.
