    I still occasionally rub a little olive oil on the dry skin of my hands in the winter time. (Hope Popeye never catches me!)

    The most popular and best-known perfume was kyphi. It was made of frankincense, myrrh, mastic, pine resin, cinnamon, cardamom, saffron, juniper, mint, and other herbs and spices. The scent is described as completely elevating, and those who could afford it are reported as being envied by those who could not. Strudwick notes that "the Egyptians loved sweet, spicy perfumes that filled the air with their heady, long-lasting aroma," and kyphi was the most expensive and sought-after of these.

    Indeed ancient method for skincare is still the most effective and harmless method, I don't know why people buy expensive skincare product instead of purchasing something natural harmless, I'm also using skincare product but I make sure that their ingredient is natural and certified by CCF, that's the reason I always used Australis skincare product their all product are made with natural ingredient and 100% vegan formulated it's a leading skincare product brand in the industry based on Australia I strongly recommend you to check out their stores and reviews and get a chance to get 30% discount with free shipping by applying an Australis coupon and much more.
