Here are some fantastic ways to use rice water for internal and external health:


  • For Smooth Skin

Rice is rich in B vitamins called ‘inositol’ that help in promoting cell growth, slowing down the aging process and stimulating blood flow. Apply to your face daily with a cotton ball

  • To Diminish Age Spots

Rice water also has antioxidant, moisturizing and UV rays absorbing properties. Rice water has the ability to bind to naturally occurring copper in the skin; therefore it prevents the production of melanin (hyperpigmentation) and age spots

  • Excellent to Heal Acne

Apply on acne with a cotton ball and it will help to quickly heal the inflammation

  • Helps with Eczema

The starch present in rice water helps in dealing with eczema by soothing the inflammation present. Take cool rice water and apply on the affected area daily for 1 week

  • Perfect for Sunburn and Rashes

Because of the soothing anti- inflammatory properties, rice water will really help with sunburn and rashes. Soak a clean cloth in cool rice water and apply to affected areas
