Japanese women have known about the amazing skin benefits of rice for centuries.
Applying rice water, rice bran oil or rice bran powder on your skin can improve your complexion and make it soft and smooth, and by consuming rice regularly you can benefit from its incredible antioxidant properties.
Rice is a grain rich in linoleic acid and squalene, a powerful antioxidant which stimulates collagen production. Squalene can also prevent early wrinkles and protect your skin from the sun.
Besides being rich in this amazing substance, rice also contains vitamin E and oryzanol which can protect your heart and lower your cholesterol.
The incredible properties of rice have been a mystery to everyone but the Japanese until recently, when the following rice-based skin mask has been made public. Here’s how to prepare it:
- 3 tablespoons of rice
- 1 tablespoon of milk
- 1 tablespoon of honey
Boil the rice in water, then strain it and put the rice water aside. Now, add the milk in the boiled rice and mix well, then add the honey in the end.

Now, wash your face first, then apply the mask on your face and let it dry before washing it off with the rice water.
Rice water has powerful antioxidant and healing properties which will improve the quality of your skin by improving circulation and soothing inflammation.

For best results, repeat the procedure at least once a week.
