Rice water is the milky white water obtained from rinsing rice. Rice water is rich in amino acids, antioxidants and minerals which may reduce or slow down the skin ageing process. It could also inhibit or slow down the activity of elastase, an enzyme responsible for skin ageing. Rice Water could also help maintain skin elasticity and therefore reduce the appearance of sign of ageing. In a recent article I read, not only can Rice Water help slow slow down the aging process it can also help brighten skin, protect the skin barrier naturally, sooth irritation, and even reduce oiliness. Who knew something so simple, like rinsing rice, could result in amazing skin care.
I know what you must be thinking, because I thought of it also, Why can’t I just make my own Rice Water. Well in fact you can. You can soak rice in water, then strain the water and use it, or you could boil rice and strain the excess water, and once cooled, use it either in a spray bottle or on a cotton ball to apply to your face. Even Though it’s simple enough, I Personally am not sure I want to take the extra time to go through those steps daily, and I’m not sure how long it would last unless it was kept in the refrigerator.
I have been using the Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser every night for quite some time now, and my skin remains soft and smooth. I personally like to use it with the vibrating facial brush. It’s a perfect way to relax after a long tiring day. My face feels clean, but soft and moisturized when I’m done. I actually look forward to cleansing my face each night.
I began using Rice Water Bright Cleansing Facial Wipes about 6 months ago. I use them to remove my makeup, because I was getting tired of staining my wash cloths with mascara. I first wipe my face using the disposable wipe, then I do a double cleanse and use the Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser on aa vibrating brush. I rinse the Facial Wipe and remove the Foaming Cleanser. Many Skin Care Specialist recommend a double cleanse when removing makeup, so this routine fits perfect with their recommendations.
I found the Rice Water Bright Gentle Exfoliating Foaming Cleanser a bit gritty, and had a hard time removing all the organic rice bran powder and hydrated silica. Although these are an important part of the exfoliating properties of this cleanser, I preferred the Foaming Cleanser on my face. I added the Exfoliating Foam Cleanser to my morning shower, and found I preferred it much better in my morning skin care routine. When in the shower, it seemed to be much easier to rinse away the rice bran powder and the hydrated silica.
The most recent addition to the Rice Water Bright Family is the Rice Water Bright Facial Massage Cream. Although I haven’t gotten a chance to try this addition yet, I am looking forward to trying it. As with All the Rice Water Bright Family of Skin Care Products, It has been created using rice water, which is known to be rich in vitamins A, B and E, ceramide and minerals. The Cream not only moisturizes dry skin but has shown to help helping visibly boost elasticity and radiance. The Cream can be gently massaged into skin 2-3 times a week, for a relaxing, self care luxury that can help revive and tighten tired, stressed skin. Plus even a quick massage can to help stimulate circulation to surfaces of the skin.
