What are the beauty secrets of Cleopatra who ruled over Egypt during the century preceding the birth of Christ? For thousands of years, Cleopatra has been immortalised as a beautiful seductress. Along with her beautiful physical appearance, Cleopatra was a woman who was full of wit, charm and very daring, through which she was able to captivate two of the most powerful Roman leaders of the ancient world, namely Julius Caesar and Mark Antony.  She has also captivated the collective imagination of the entire world for all centuries that has since followed. The outstanding physical beauty of Cleopatra has inspired innumerable works of art which depicts her as an alluring temptress, and spawning countless modern beauty parlours in her name.

Online gaming also has been inspired by the beauty of Cleopatra and thus IGT has created the popular Cleopatra Slots which is a 5 reel 20 paylines online video slots that can be found at Spin and Win.

Historical and archaeological evidence has described Cleopatra as “a woman of surpassing beauty who was brilliant to look upon”, and this was once quoted by Roman historian Cassius Dio two centuries after Cleopatra’s reign. It is good to keep in mind that ancient ideals of beauty were a bit different to those of the modern world as in those days a full bodied woman with a prominent nose was considered to be beautiful, however such a woman in our current modern time would be advised by society to lose weight and have a nose job as this ideal of beauty is no longer found to be fashionable.

Nonetheless, Cleopatra had her beauty secrets such as using honey on her face for its anti-bacterial properties, washing her face several times with oil and lime, rinsing her face with apple cider vinegar, exfoliating her body and face with sea salt scrub and using rosewater to make pimple marks disappear, which are just a few of the her beauty secrets.
