Masks From Rice Water
Rice water contains several nutrients that can protect and repair damage to the skin. This ingredient also acts as a natural softener and toner that maintains skin’s moisture. How to make:
Soak 80 grams of rice in a bowl and add water until all the rice is submerged. Wait 30-60 minutes for the rice water to look turbid. Then, strain the rice marinade water.
Take a few sheets of facial tissue and make it as a sheet mask. Smear the “mask sheet” made earlier with rice soaking water. Leave on your face for 15 minutes.
You can add some additional alternatives such as lemon, papaya, banana, etc. to get maximum results.
