  • Rinse your rice with water to make sure there’s no dirt or impurities, place your rice in a bowl and pour in your water and cover for 24 hours. Strain your water from the rice and your rice water is ready.

Method 2: boiled rice

  • To make a concentrated rice water to use as a facial wash or hair rinse, prepare rice as you normally would, after it has gotten to a boiling point, strain the water it will look so white. That is your rice water and it has high concentration of nutrients BENEFITS OF RICE WATER
  • Skin toner: rice water is an excellent skin toner, it helps in keeping the skin smooth and glowing. It will even your skin tone.
