Here’s Why Rice Face Packs Should Be The New Addition To Your Skincare Routine!

Did you know that India is the second-largest producer of rice in the world? As amazing as it sounds, it really shouldn’t surprise us as most Indians consume rice as a part of their staple diet. In the beauty world too, rice has managed to emerge as one of the most popular kitchen ingredients. People also love using rice water and rice powder face packs to get bright and glowing skin, for removing stubborn tan, get rid of the discolouration on their faces, etc.

Using different by-products of rice (rice water, rice powder/rice flour) is something that has been used as a part of the Japenese skincare for many decades. Rice flour (known as komeko in Japanese) is a popular skincare choice to get glowing skin, fight off ageing properties among many other benefits.

Rice flour (or powder) can also be added as an added ingredient in natural or homemade face packs to tackle different kinds of skin woes. It is a mild ingredient and you can absolutely use it daily as a part of your skincare routine.

Benefits Of Rice Face Pack


Rice is really nice to our skin as it helps tackle a lot of skin issues. Did you know that rice contains ferulic acid and allantoin that helps protect our skin from the sun’s wrath? It is also known for its anti-inflammatory properties and helps soothe sunburn. Here are some more benefits of rice face pack that’ll make you add this to your skincare, STAT:

1. UV Protection and soothes sunburns: Rice has natural sunscreen properties that help protect the skin from the sun. Using a rice-based face pack or fermented rice water on our face is an excellent way to protect the skin. In case of a sunburn, take equal parts of rice flour with rose water and apply it on the affected area.

2. Skin Brightening: Using rice water on your face daily is sure to brighten up your face. To make rice water, take half a cup of uncooked rice and rinse them properly. Then place them in a bowl full of drinking water and let it soak. Let it sit for about 12-24 hours and then separate the rice from it and your rice water is ready to be used daily.

3. Reduction of pores: Rice water acts as a natural astringent that can help open (or close) pores as well as clean them. Use rice water daily as a toner to see optimal results.

4. Reduces acne: Using a rice face pack regularly can decrease the appearance of acne as it has antioxidant properties. Combine that with the benefits of rice powder and you get great skin in no time! The high content of Vitamin B in rice (especially brown rice) is an excellent acne-fighting agent.

5. Relieves itching: Rice allergy is real, people! Unless you have really sensitive skin, you can use rice flour and water to treat itchy skin.

We bet you cannot wait to enjoy rice face pack benefits!
