Rice Water For Clear Skin And Beautiful Hair

There are a few things that can brighten  my day like a plate of steaming fried rice and chicken sauce. Oh my! My mouth is watering already...ugh!

Moving on...

Rice is a staple food for almost half of the world’s population, supplying as much as half of the calories needed for our daily intake. 

Rice is also an important beautifying ingredient that can be included in your daily skincare routine.

It has moisturizing, antioxidant, and healing properties that help to improve circulation, prevent or fade age related spots to give you healthy, better moisturized and clear skin.

 Rinsing or washing your hair with rice water will improve manageability and protect it from future damage. In addition, the amino acids, vitamins and minerals in the rice water strengthen the hair roots, add body and shine and condition the scalp and hair.

Here's what you'll need:
  • Half cup of uncooked rice
  • 2 cups of water

  • Rinse the rice with about a cup of water to remove any dirt or impurities.
  • Put rice in a bowl and add water until the rice is covered.
  •  Let the rice soak for about an hour.
  •  Swirl it around and lightly knead it like your washing until the water turns cloudy/milky. This will help the vitamins and minerals seep into the water, creating a nourishing rinse for your hair and skin. 
  • Now strain out the rice water into a clean bowl.
  •  Your rice water is ready to use.
  • You can either use this water for your hair or face
  • For Face: Dab a bit onto your face and gently massage it into your skin for couple of minutes. Allow to dry before rinsing off with water only.
  • For Hair: After shampooing your hair, pour the rice water on your hair. Gently massage your scalp and hair and leave it on for 10 minutes. Then rinse your hair thoroughly with water.
Boiling Method:
 You can also boil the rice to extract rice water. For this, boil the rice using more water than you would normally do. Once it start boiling take out the excess water and use; or you can also let the rice fully cook, strain, and use that excess water. Let the rice water cool down and it’s ready to use. You can store the remaining amount in the fridge for 4 to 5 days.
So you see, that bag of rice sitting in your kitchen is quite a force to be reckoned with.
