When the talks are of ancient Egypt, we always keep in mind of the old pyramids. Our vision for the place gets set accordingly. It is a full sea of the tombs. We are here with the number of films that you will get for a lot of mummies and the pharaoh’s tombs. Also, we are aware that Egyptians were the first to develop the paper. But all these facts are very famous regarding the place. Here we are with some more that our teachers never tell us in the school. The point is regarding the pharaoh’s people. We cannot place them in the right quality.
They were not as we think them in the picture. We love talking about history. Also, we are aware of the number of facts about them. These procedures will surprise you a lot.
The lipstick that pharaoh’s used to wear got made from the insects
The red carminic acid that is to extract from cochineal or the scale insects always come into use as the component for the makeup. But in the case of modern women, they do not use the extract of carmine dye which would help them to produce a powder. Also, if they apply lipstick, then they would not require to boil or crush the insects.
Pharaohs always used their slaves to be bait so that they can get rid of the flies
Flies were to spoil the bodies of ancient Egyptians. They even live more than they do today. Today our technology has developed to a lot of extents such that we use the number of sprays and the creams. But in the ancient time, King Pepi II slaves covered themselves with the honey which would help them to serve as bait for the flies. But the job was quite unpleasant.
People used to decorate the tombs as if that is their home and always bring food at that place.
The Egyptians had a high determination to pay attention to the afterlife. Also, they had a faith that if a person dies, then he would live in another life. They believe that after death a person would require all the things that they need before it turns their bodies to get mummified. They always put the essential products along with them at the house which include those of makeup, food, drinks, products, and favorite pets. Also, they keep slaves in their homes.
Pharaoh’s have one common problem that they suffer from, and that is obesity
In the old pictures of Egyptians, you can see the old people who are fit and healthy. But modern scientists have performed the X-ray on the mummies for the analysis purpose. They have concluded that the pictures that we see are far from reality. Now consider the case of wealthy Egyptians especially of those of pharaohs. They were not much healthy and fit. They used to eat unhealthy food and hence the food items were full of carbs and the saturated fats that lead to obesity and many other problems regarding health.
The people have great faith in the proctologists
Egyptians were good at the medicinal purpose. They were much good in the issues of dentists, surgeons, and ophthalmologists. But among them, all proctologists were on the top rank of the doctors. The wealthy people used to spend most of their time eating and drinking. They got addicted to enemas regularly. Some of the proctologists were among the dentists, and hence they always used to take care of the Pharaoh’s digestive system from both sides.
Men also used makeup to turn beautiful
Men and women were very very careful regarding their beauty matter. They thought that applying makeup would keep their skin protected from the harmful rays of the sun. And also in their beliefs, their God applied makeup. Makeup was the one who would heal them and cure problems. Here we agree to the point. You can fight against conjunctivitis through the eyeliner which contained lead. But then lead, and cinnabar did more harm than they thought.
