New Year, New You. Going natural in both the kitchen and the bathroom is easier than you think. For years, rice cleanser has been a secret go to for Asian cultures for generations. If you happen to shop at any natural or wellness markets you will see them on the shelves as well.
To make your own, start with a jasmine rice and distilled water. I prefer to use bottled to avoid the struggle of hard or soft water that can hinder your complexion. I use two cups of water and one cup of rice and bring the combination to a slight and short boil on the stovetop, just under a minute.
Transfer the contents in the pan to a bowl and leave sitting for 15 minutes. Pour the liquid into any air tight container that works for you, I find that a standard size mason jar is the perfect size. Store in refrigerator.
Using rice water as a facial cleanser is as simple as splashing a bit onto your face and gently massaging it into your skin for about a minute. That’s all there is to it! After just one application, you’ll notice your skin feeling soft, tight, and young.
