I am so excited to share with you all the beauty benefits of rice water. The wonderful thing is, it’s so easily accessible so instead of throwing away that rice water, why don’t you try these tips. It can be used for beautiful hair and gorgeous skin.
Rice water is rich in beauty minerals and vitamins that make it fantastic for both skin and hair – a secret those flawless-skinned Japanese geishas have known for centuries.
Which rice to useBrown, white long grain, white short grain, jasmine, or whatever you have.
Method 1: Boiled rice waterTo make a concentrate of rice water to use all week long in its diluted form as a facial wash or hair rinse, prepare rice as you normally would, but use two to three times the amount of water you usually would.
After the rice has cooked, strain it out. The leftover water will be a vivid white color, and will contain a high concentration of nutrients. However, don’t use it at full strength. Instead, dilute a few tablespoons of this concentrated rice water into a cup of clean water, making a barely milky-looking mixture.
Use this diluted solution to wash your face or to treat your hair, and store the leftover concentrate in the refrigerator in a covered container for up to one week.
