Cleopatra was famous for her beautiful skin. Her secret was that she soaked in baths of fresh milk.
Modern laboratories now know why milk worked such wonders for her skin: the lactic acid in milk is an alpha hydroxy acid, a natural material that dissolves the glue that holds dead skin cells together. Milk can cleanse the skin down to its deepest layers.
A Cleopatra bath nowadays consists of water and cow milk or goat milk enriched by other nutritive additives. An example for a Cleopatra bath: emulsion of goat milk, cream, aloe vera, Macadamia nut oil and Calendula oil. After the bath, the skin feels soft and silky.
