The milled rice is one of the best facial scrubs that exist today. Its grains get rid of dead cells, and rice water provides a firming effect to the skin of the face, hydrating and rejuvenating it.

Regenerating the dermis is possible. Obviously, in cosmetics there are no miracles, but there are home remedies to give you a more youthful appearance, elasticity and hydration. And one of the most effective ways is the rice mask, also called a Japanese mask. In this article we tell you how to make it for the face, what it is for and what benefits you will get from it.

What is the use of rice flour and water on the face?

The fortune of creams, serums and cosmetics in general is no secret. We spend a lot of money if we add at the end of the year. But, if you spend some time, you can make your own treatments at home with similar natural active ingredients. The results may not be the same, because they know how to focus a cosmetic on a certain type of skin or age, however, home remedies are very effective and here we tell you several secrets.

Here we have already told you about many masks such as honey, avocado or oatmeal. In this case we will see how to use ground rice to benefit your beauty. Surely it had not occurred to you, but this Japanese treatment is ideal for taking care of the face for the following reasons.

  • It contains vitamin B. Vitamin B is an essential nutrient in skin, nail and hair care. It promotes cell renewal, and endows them with resistance against inclement weather.
  • Hydrating. A mask with rice and honey works to eliminate dead cells, but if you prepare it with honey, it will provide hydration to the skin along with the rice water.
  • Anti-aging and firming. Inositol is the molecule present in the Oryza sativa cereal that is responsible for the anti-wrinkle effect, which regenerates the skin by stimulating blood circulation throughout the face.
  • Toning. The rice mask for the face, rich in inositol, gives elasticity to the skin, slowing down the signs of aging and taking care of your health.
  • Like oatmeal or clay, this mask exfoliates the skin, removing blackheads. Sometimes it is combined with pytic acid, a must in facial cleansing.
  • For acne. Make a mask of this seed with lemon for oily skin. If you have acne, rice flour and lemon regulate the sebum secreted by the dermis follicles, causing infections when not cleaned properly. The lemon helps to dry out the pimples, while the ground cereal exfoliates them, achieving a toning, as well as a reduction of spots on the skin.
