Are you looking for the perfect toner for your skin? Well, the perfect toner may be available right in your kitchen pantry. I am talking about RICE! More than likely, you have some rice in the pantry and probably didn’t realize that a bit of rice could help create a natural, cheap toner that will leave your skin looking wonderful. It is also good for eczema, shiny hair, acne and to shrink pores.
WHY RICE WATER WORKS
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. Rice actually includes “inositol,” which is a complex of B vitamins.
These vitamins work to improve blood flow, reduce aging and improve cell turnover and growth, slows down the aging process and stimulates blood flow. This helps to tighten up the pores on your face, and it also gives skin a beautiful, healthy glow as well. You’ll also find that rice water has both antioxidant and moisturizing properties, and both offer excellent benefits to your skin.
HOW TO BRIGHTEN YOUR SKIN - RICE WATER
rice water has been used as a face wash and a hair wash.
Washing your face with rice water softens skin and improves the complexion

What you’ll need:
1/2 cup of rice
1 1/2 or 2 cups of water
1 medium bowl
1 glass jar with lid
lemon juice – this is optional (the amount depends on your rice water)
Flawless Face :
Take a half cup of rice and fill it with water, just enough the rice is covered.
Let the rice soak for 15 minutes (or you can leave it overnight) until the water turns cloudy. If you think rice is not clean, you can keep the water after second wash.
This is your rice toner and you can use it just like any other toner.
Pour rice water into a glass jar, store in the refrigerator. It will last for 4-5 days without a preservative
I like to add few squeeze of lemon juice with my rice toner (this is optional) for added lightening effects
Clean your face then soak a cotton pad in rice water and apply it on your face. You can rinse it off after 15 – 20 minutes but I like to leave the mixture on my face just like a toner. This will help to tighten pores and bring glow. The same rice water is considered to be an excellent hair conditioner. After shampooing, rinse your hair with rice water and leave it on for a few minutes then rinse it out.
You’ll be surprised at how amazing your skin and hair looks.
