Egyptian Eye Magic

Ancient Egyptian queens are depicted wearing spectacular eye makeup that highlights their eyes. Egyptians of the time also believed that the makeup had a magic which summoned protection against illness from the gods Horus and Ra. This has been dismissed as we know that the Egyptian makeup contained lead which can be toxic. New research has examined 52 samples from Egyptian makeup containers held at the Louvre, Paris. They found four different lead based compounds but also found that the compounds boosted nitric oxide production in human skin cells by 240 per cent. One of the functions of nitric oxide is to stimulate the immune system. So the makeup was helping prevent eye infections that are a common problem in tropical marshy areas like the Nile delta. So the makeup did have a kind of magic and there was more than beauty in the eye of the beholder.Meanwhile if you visit Meijer Ad that contains mostly likewise discounts with Winn Dixie Ad you surely have a range like ALDI Ad.
