Rice Water Toner

3 Dec

I recently came across this do it yourself Rice Water toner.. and it’s amazing! Easy to make, easy to use and the benefits are numerous.

When used as a toner, it hydrates, reduces redness, refreshes, removes impurities and even helps get rid of pimples and black heads. Persistence is important because you may not see any immediate results straight after the first use. And no need to discard the rice after use, the rice can still be used for cooking!

Facts and Health Benefits:
Rice contains a high concentration of PABA. PABA (para aminobenzoic acid) is a very good sunscreen. When taken internally, PABA also raises the Vitamin C levels in our bodies. Rice also contains two other sun protecting agents – ferulic acid and allantoin. Ferulic acid is an antioxidant. Incredibly, scientists have found that when ferulic acid is added to Vitamin C and E, its sun protection ability doubled. Allantoin is a good anti-inflammatory agent. It soothes sunburns and also promotes the skin’s repair.

 

Steps to make your Toner:

1.Thoroughly clean your face and pat dry with a towel.

2.Add rice to bowl and cover with the warm water. I use only organic rice because this rice does not contain any harming pesticides.

3. Begin to stir the rice until the water becomes fully cloudy.

4. The cloudy water is your toner! You can dab your cotton ball into the bowl or pour your water into a separate container like a 3oz traveling bottle, or even a spice jar with holed lid.

5. Take the cotton ball and apply the rice water toner like you would any other toner. If using the bottle, you can store the left over toner for future use. Experiment with different types of rice such as brown, black, white, bamboo, and jasmine rice.

 

Quick Tip:

Do not keep the toner for more than 3-4 days. It will begin to mold and smell horrid. So make only small batches.
