La cura del corpo era molto importante per gli antichi egizi che utilizzavano creme, unguenti e profumi per ammorbidire e profumare la pelle.

Trucco nell'antico Egitto

Le donne si schiarivano la pelle con un composto cremoso ricavato dalla biacca, disponibile in colori diversi, dalla più pallida alla più ambrata generalmente destinata alle labbra.

Trucco antico Egitto
Evidenziavano il contorno degli occhi con il kohl nero o verde, rispettivamente estratti dalla golena e dalla malachite.

Le unghie venivano tinte così come le palme delle mani e dei piedi e a volte anche i capelli con una pasta a base di hennè. Utilizzavano specchi, pinzette per la depilazione e attrezzi per la manicure. I profumi (utilizzati da uomini e donne come le creme), venivano estratti da fiori, fatti macerare e pigiati.

Tutte le essenze odorose avevano nel dio Shesmu il loro protettore.

Venivano prodotti in laboratori associati ai templi e conservati in vasetti di pasta vetrosa, la faience.
