The changing trends

Makeup and skin care may be treated as an indulgence at present. In the past, it was a necessity in early Egyptian, Greek, Roman, and Chinese times. In Egypt, nature was the primary source for skincare. Ostrich eggs, milk, dough, and plant extracts like aloe vera created body oils and scrubs. The oils work to diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and stretch marks. Even Queen Cleopatra became famous for bathing in sour milk. Similar materials and method applied for the Chinese. They used seaweed and jellyfish as natural cleansers. For skin lighteners, they used Songyi mushroom. It is also an ingredient used in modern creations.

In cosmetics, Greeks and Romans favored a natural look with their makeup. This sets them apart from Egyptians who desired elaborate eye looks using black galena and green malachite. Queen Cleopatra became the epitome of eternal beauty in these times with her signature eyes smeared with kohl.

From hair dyes to perfumes to facial and body creams, beauty essentials continue to improve considering the changing trends across the world. The industry is responding with an explosion of innovative products that not only deliver results but packed in Instagram-worthy containers without complicated description labels.
