To keep their skin in a perfect condition and prevent premature aging, Japanese women use a mask made of rice.
This therapeutic facial mask with rice, milk and honey, will become your favorite, because it will make your skin soft, light, velvety and radiant.
Preparation of the mask:
Take 2-3 tablespoons of raw rice and cook it until it becomes soft (put the raw rice in cold water and gradually turn on the heat and cook the rice). Drain the rice, but keep the water in a separate bowl, because you will use it later.
Wash the cooked rice with water and add one tablespoon of warm milk in it. Stir the mixture and add 1 spoon of honey.
Clean your face and neck and apply a thick layer of the mask.
Remove the mask after 30 minutes and wash the face with the rice water.
In addition to the aforementioned beneficial characteristics of rice, the rice water will also hydrate your skin. It contains antioxidants and has the ability to absorb ultraviolet rays. In addition, it is able to bind copper, and delay the formation of melanin, thus preventing the formation of pigment stains and brightening the existing ones.
The rice water can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. You can use it in the mornings and evenings as a face lotion. You can freeze it in an ice cube tray and use the ice cubes to massage your face.
