Beloved by many celebrities, this natural toner is perfect for hair and skin. Rice water has been used for centuries in Japan and has been proven to have fantastic results on skin and hair health. Easy to make at home with only two ingredients.
Rice water is a starchy liquid obtained from soaking and cooking rice (rice is about 75% starch). This liquid contains an unbelievable amount of amino acids, as well as Vitamin B and E, which are fabulous for the skin and hair. The antioxidants, all present in rice water, are a common ingredient in any anti-aging skincare routine.
Rice water is recommended for dry and sensitive skin and helps it get rid of irritation caused by SLS, a chemical common in face washes.
There is evidence that using rice water twice a day will improve skin health, making it more supple and hydrated.
But rice water can be used in other beauty rituals too. It helps dry and damaged hair recover. In fact, it has been established that some compounds of rice water can penetrate the hair and restore it from the inside-out, booting shine and growth.
Rice water also protects skin-damaged skin, helping prevent and cure pigmentation caused by sun exposure.
