To feel like Cleopatra, just add 1-2 litres of milk and 1 teaspoon of honey to your bath or use cosmetics containing lactic acids.


Israeli mud wraps based on the Dead Sea are known to have healing and rejuvenating properties. Mineral salts from the Dead Sea help relieve muscle tension and calm the nervous system. You can use sea salt and mud at home for baths or buy Israeli cosmetics that use these beneficial ingredients.


Brazilian women use beach sand for anti-cellulite massage. This massage improves blood circulation, helping to fight cellulite. In summer, you can collect wet sand on the beach and massage your body with it, and in winter, you can use ground coffee or sea salt.
