History of Cosmetics and skincare products Cosmetics and skin care products have played a role in our lives throughout history. Early on, man found that natural herbs, leaves, powders and oils could have a “beautifying” effect as well as have a “protective” purpose – protecting against the elements – the sun or serving as insect repellents. The early starters Our early Egyptian ancestors were using cosmetics and skincare products about 6000 years ago as can be evidenced in art and archaeological finds in various tombs and pyramids.

The Soldier – A Poem by Ekwa Cathy

The Soldier – A Poem by Ekwa Cathy Like a soldier; he walked through the streets; Besieging the people to respect laws. In a calm and tranquil manner; he spoke like the Messiah. On one side of the road seated a beggar. He dropped a coin and walks away majestically. Praises echoed his ears from onlookers. He smiles at them and bids them farewell.

But his looks were: simple, soft and smart. Many lost their lives and properties; in the course of destruction. But limped on blood-shod; Some went lame; some blind and shocked at the works he did for…
