Beauty Benefits of Rice Water to Skin and Hair
How to make rice water
Rice is, of course, delicious as a major culinary ingredient worldwide, so we all know how it is made, but when we are using it for aesthetic purposes it is a different process, By the way, it is very simple.
Start digging in your pantry and don’t worry about the type of rice you use, because for this purpose all rice works except instant rice. There are many ways to make rice water, however, here’s a simple and quick way that has worked. I like to put 1 cup of rice in 2 cups of hot water and let it strain for about 20 minutes or until the water has cooled down completely, just to get up, which is a beauty booster to conserve that water. Can be used on your skin and hair.
Rice water for skin
It is a great fluid to nourish the skin thanks to antioxidants. If you are dealing with inflammation or irritation of the skin due to acne, rice water will help. Substrate or take a break from your regular cleanser during the winter, when the skin dries up, and try rice water as a facial cleanser instead. I know it sounds a little crazy but it is perfect for any skin type, including sensitivity. If you wake up with a fluffy face you will notice that rice water helps to reduce and reduce puffiness and redness as well.
Rice water for hair
It is amazing that this natural treatment can not only contribute to improving hair texture, but can also add shine and volume to the hair, but it also helps in keeping our scalp healthy. In this way, the hair will get better because you are paying attention to the roots as well. Rice water will help in avoiding the stripping of natural oils in your hair. You can alternate between using your regular shampoo and using rice water instead. However, I like to apply it after my shampoo, I focus on the scalp and massage gently, allowing the products to penetrate deeply around my hair. While washing your body, wait for at least 5 minutes and then apply conditioner from mid to tips only if needed. Repeat this every time you wash your hair and wait for the results.
There are some products in the market that contain rice water, but in this case, I make it at home and go with the most natural and pure form. So try it and let me know your thoughts!
