Do This at Least Once a Week and Your Face Will be 10 Years Younger!

Posted on Sep 2 2015 - 3:25pm by

This is something the Japanese ladies have known for centuries – the surprisingly skin healing benefits of rice!

Applying rice bran oil, rice bran powder and rice water on your skin can change the texture and clarity of the skin, meaning it can make skin smooth and eliminate dark spots. Also, you can enrich your diet with rice and use its antioxidant powers.

Rice is a rich source of linoleic acids and squalene, a powerful antioxidant that promotes the collagen production in the skin. It is a substance that keeps skin from wrinkling. In addition, squalene protects the skin from sun damage. Large amount of vitamin E and gamma oryznol are present in rice as well, which protects heart health and lowers cholesterol.

Rice has astonishing effects in skin rejuvenation and not many people know this, except from the Japanese.

We will give you a recipe of a rice based mask that softens wrinkles and makes your skin glow.


To prepare the mask, you will need:

– 3 tablespoons rice
– 1 tablespoon milk
– 1 tablespoon of honey

After you boil the rice, strain it and put aside the water in which the rice boiled. Add a spoon of heated milk in the rice and mix them. After you stir the mixture well, add honey to it.

Apply the mask on clean, dry skin and let it dry. Afterwards, take off the mask and wash your face with water in which the rice boiled.

Rice water has antioxidant and healing properties that moisturize the skin and improve circulation, avoid age related spots and ease inflammation. Rice water will give you healthy, clear and more moisturized skin. Also, it offers you a mild sun protection.

Do this procedure once a week at least, if you want to feel the benefits and look ten years younger.

    Quantity of water to boil rice is not written. can you clear how much water to use to boil the rice.

      You will need around 200 ml of water and boil the rice until it gets soft. White rice usually takes about 15 to 20 minutes to cook.

    Does boiling the rice mean cooking it? How much water do we need to boil it?

      Yes. Boil the rice until it gets soft. White rice usually takes about 15 to 20 minutes to cook. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.

    Lil confuse….we need to mix honey n milk in cooked rice and wash face with the water in which we cooked rice (starch)….like that ?

      That’s right. Boil the rice, strain it. Add a tablespoon of heated milk in the rice and mix them. After you stir the mixture well, add honey to it. Apply the mask and then wash your face with water in which the rice boiled.

    Even I have d same doubt
    Do v need to mix milk and honey in the cooked or in the removed starch❓

    • October 2, 2015 at 1:40 pm - Reply

      You mix milk and honey in the cooked rice. You use the water in which the rice boiled to wash your face afterwards.

    After washing the mask of with rice water do we have to leave it to dry or wash again with fresh water.

    How do we strain cooked rice? Every time I’ve made rice there’s no water to strain.

    • Sandhya October 14, 2015 at 11:56 am - Reply

      You have to boil rice in 4 cups of water for 1 cup of rice to get the water or more water.

  19. Wimol October 14, 2015 at 7:09 am - Reply

    I think its should be boil rice that used more water than cooked rice and boil it until its just soft so you have water to strain to used^^

    Would Jasmine rice be suitable for this? Or should it just be plain white long grain rice?
    Thanks :)

      For this beauty tip I used plain white long grain rice and I’m very happy with the results. Thanks for your comment! :)

    This is intriguing to me but as a health coach am very concerned about the arsenic in rice. Organic or not my understanding is that it’s a widespread problem and since the skin is the largest organ of elimination are we swapping one problem for another??? Would LOVE to try it if there were a way around this

    This will probably sound like a dumb question, but, is the rice suppose to stick to your skin or do you just rub the rice over your skin?
