Make up for medical purposes

Make up for medical purposes
Stylists each season offers a trendy make up, and a new palette to create it.
All changes can not keep track, but every woman, regardless of her mother-heroine from the African tribe or the Secretary of the U.S. president, know what make-up and simple ways of application.
Habit to paint the face appeared, probably at a time when our ancestors were covered by a fig leaf, planed wooden spears and ran for a mammoth, making animal sounds. In addition to all of this was a bright frightening face painting. So make-up has been created not to attract the opposite sex!

Times have changed. And cosmetics are used not only on the battlefield and before going on a hunt, and for medical purposes.
An interesting example of the use of make up for medical purposes was ancient Egypt, where the cosmetics did not ignore neither male nor female.
It was used primarily to emphasize their status and beauty of the face, as well as to attract the opposite sex, and anti-bacteria.
In the journal Analytical Chemistry, scientists who have studied the issue of cosmetics and its importance in the ancient world, said that the Egyptians used a mixture of beauty to fight infections and diseases.
It was believed that the "magical makeover" using crude antimony is able to attract the patronage of the gods Ra and Horus, and protect against eye diseases.
In this case, there is an opposite opinion, they say, of what use cosmetics, which includes toxic lead compounds, can we talk?
Still, the healing properties of the "magic make up" the Egyptians have been proven!
Christian Amator the University of Pierre and Marie Curie and his colleagues studied the composition of cosmetic mixtures, the remains of which were found in the objects that make up the exhibition Louvre.

Among them, the scientists found four lead compounds, and found that these elements help to dramatically accelerate the production of nitric oxide tissue cells of the human body that stimulates the immune system and helps to cope with the disease.
Today in Egypt and all Arab countries "magical makeover" has not lost its relevance.
For the "magic make-up" cosmetic use treated antimony (Kohli, Kaya, kadzhal, kudzhal), which is produced in the form of black or gray powder and pencil. Due to its composition, it is a means of stimulating growth of hair eyelashes and eyebrows.
Gray powder is applied at night for internal mucosa of the lower and upper eyelid, after removing makeup. It helps relieve stress and remove redness.
Black antimony has the same properties, but it can be used for day and evening make-up, like a pen, and in the form of shadows.
So make up for medical purposes is possible not only in ancient Egypt!
