The history of facial treatments goes back a long way. Many different cultures had some form of treatment to rid the face of imperfections and to give a healthy glow. In fact. facial techniques have been recorded as far back as 3,000 B.C. Around the 1500s, in the Elizabethan Era, pale skin was a sign of wealth and power. People used what they called Ceruse to accomplish a ghost like complexion, which is a mixture of white lead and vinegar. Queen Elizabeth is one of the most famous people to have used this method of facial treatment. The Egyptians were another culture that thought your skin and more importantly your face needed to be moisturized and rid of dirt. They, unlike the Europeans, liked to use Fenugreek. It is a grass-like plant with several medical and ceremonial purposes. It is potent when it comes to skin care and ridding it of imperfections.
