Rice Water Skin Care Benefits
Rice water can give your skin a flawless porcelain finish and even lighten and whiten your skin over time – better then expensive skin whitening serums. When I mean whiten, I’m referring to removing hyperpigmentation, age spots, and sun spots.
You can also expect to see it help firm up your skin and reduce your pore size. This would explain the smoothness I always experience!
Rice water is full of skin loving vitamins, minerals, especially PABA, allantonin, and ferullic acids, especially antioxidants that have an anti-inflammatory effect on the skin.
