Cosmetics began to be used in the time of Ancient Egypt, as protection of the skin from the strong sun and hot winds that were characteristic of the African deserts.
Today, cosmetics are used by both men and women, and it seems that not a day goes by without something new appearing on the world market. Beauty in a bottle has never been more accessible!
The ancient Egyptians regarded beauty as a sign of holiness. Everything they used had a spiritual aspect to it, including cosmetics. Both men and women wore makeup. Traders traded makeup often, especially in the upper classes. In tombs, cosmetic palettes were found buried in gold with the deceased as grave goods, which further emphasized the idea that cosmetics were not only used for aesthetic purposes but rather magical and religious purposes.🤍
