My experience using rice water on my face for 7 days

Rice water is one of the most talked about home remedy on the internet .

A  few days back , I was struggling with a lot of skin issues and thus thought to give it a try .

Before I tell you what was my experience with rice water let me give you some idea of what rice water is , how its made , what are its benefit and where the concept of rice water originally came from ? 

What is rice water ?

Rice water , also known as rice milk is the left over water after you wash the rice .

Basically it is the rice soaked water , after properly washing the rice due to the pesticides and germs present in the raw rice , and letting it sit about 2 hours in fresh water you get rice water . 

The earliest known use of it was over 1,000 years ago in Japan. 

Today, rice water is gaining popularity as a skin treatment too. 

It’s said to soothe and tone your skin, and even improve different skin conditions. 

Even more enticing, rice water is something you can easily and inexpensively make at home.

Rice water contains substances known to help protect and repair your skin. 

Despite some real benefits, there are many claims about it that science hasn’t fully proven.

How to make rice water for face ? 

Step 1 ) Wash the raw rice properly , 2 to 4 times .

Step 2 ) Pour some fresh water in the rice . 

Step 4 ) Now boil the rice on medium flame but do not over do it , one boil is enough . 

Step 5 ) Separate the water from the rice and let it cool . 

Step 6 ) Let the rice water sit for over night on the room temperature for fermentation .

Step 7 ) Now keep the rice water in fridge , & your fermented rice water is ready to use . 

Step 8 ) Dilute the rice water if you think its too much for your face . 

You can store the rice water only for 4 days in the fridge , Its best to make a fresh batch after 3 to  4 days . 

Benefits of using rice water on face .

1) Improves skin texture .

2) Helps with Hydration .

3) Reverses sun damage due to the zinc content in the rice .

4) Helps with redness on the cheeks .

5) It helps in brightening the skin .

2) You can take a cotton boll soaked in rice water and swipe your face with it . 

3) You can wash your face with rice water Like a cleanser . 

4 ) You can also use it as a moisturizer , if you have oily skin . 

5) You can use it as an essence on your face or may be as serum stage . 

6) I like to use rice water as a toner and moisturizer . 

7) I use Rice water , right after washing my face with plain water . I have oily skin & it's summers so , I don't use any thing else on my face , not even a cleanser . 

After using the rice water for 10 days My experience ....

I thought to give rice water a try , though  I really wasn't sure about it  , since I do not believe in home remedies much . 

But to my surprise I was shook from the day 2 of using this magical water on my face , I started to notice so much of difference . 

In the initial stages it was just giving me relax from the irritation and inflammation , which I was going through . 

After using it for one week I noticed my skin texture is improving so much and my pores were just getting happy and calm day by day .

No it did not completely made my pimples and acne disappeared , but after 10 day I can surly say that  the blemishes and dark patches are starting to fade away . 

These were the only changes which I saw , after using rice water for 10 days on my face , & I am surly gonna use this for at least a month and will share the results once I am done . 

Comment below what are your thoughts on the rice water , have you ever used it , if yes than let me know the results .
