Unique post & Haha Ayra!

Fact: Cleopatra also used slices of cucumbers to put on her eyes and she also bathed in the Dead Sea

Queen Mary of Scots and Catherine De Medici are my fave. I love watching them on Reign. The actors/actresses do an amazing job in portraying their characters. Thanks for the interesting facts.

@2: makeup in Tudor times was made with led. The women who used this makeup to have a white skin, poisoned themselves. I really would not want to see what they have looked like.

Apparently Cleopatra also used olive oil on her skin for its anti-aging properties.

Pigeon excretion plenty of that on my car ...
