Japanese Rice – Based Mask
- Cook 2 – 3 tablespoons of raw rice until it softens (put the raw rice in cold water, and gradually heat up until it softens). After boiling it, strain the rice and put the rice water in a separate bowl.
- Rinse your rice and add a tablespoon of warm milk and stir until it is well combined. While stirring add a tablespoon of honey.
- Clean your face thoroughly before applying a generous amount of the mask on your face. Gently remove the mask after ½ an hour and rinse with rice water.
Even more, rice water is packed with antioxidants and has the ability to absorb ultraviolet rays, and is a great skin moisturizer. It is also able to attach with copper, slow down the formation of melanin, and thus prevent the creation of the pigment stains and brighten the already existing ones.
Don’t keep the rice water in the fridge for more than 4 days. Use it twice a day, early in the morning and in the evening before going to bed, as a face lotion. Put it in ice molds and freeze them and use it for skin icing treatments or facial massages.
