Rice water is one beauty enhancer many of us are not aware of though it has been used for centuries by women in Asia for beautiful skin and hair. It is an excellent skin toner and hair wash. Rice contains ‘pitera’ along with many vitamins and minerals. Pitera is highly beneficial for revitalizing skin’s natural glow and keeping your skin clear. It’s used in many expensive skin care products which claim to make your skin crystal clear.
HOW TO PREPARE
- Half cup organic rice
- Glass jar with lid/Pot
Method of preparations
Take half cup of organic rice and fill it with enough water to cover the rice. Use only organic rice because it is free from pesticide or fertilizer. Let the rice soak for a few minutes until the water turns cloudy. If you think your rice is not clean, you can discard this water and fill it again. This is your rice toner and it can be used just like any other toner. Pour this water into a glass jar, store it in the refrigerator and it will last for 4-5 days.
Clean your face, soak a cotton pad in rice water and apply it on your face. This will help to tighten pores and bring glow. The same rice water is considered to be an excellent hair conditioner. After shampooing, rinse your hair with rice water and leave it on for a few minutes then wash it.
