Benefits of Rice Masks for Skin

 

Rice masks are made from the main ingredient of cooked rice, but you can also use water soaked in rice or rice flour.

For more optimal results, you can mix other natural ingredients

Here are some of the benefits of rice masks for facial skin beauty:

1. Prevents Self-Aging

 

Rice masks have been proven to be useful for facial skin care by preventing premature aging.

According to research reported in the journal Cosmetics, rice water contains antioxidants that can inhibit the activity of elastase, an enzyme that causes damage to elastin.

This content is a supporting factor in maintaining skin elasticity and slowing down the symptoms of aging. 

 

2. Brightens facial skin

 

In Asia, many people consider fair skin to be the standard of beauty.

Therefore, skin care products from countries such as Indonesia, Japan or Korea often claim to brighten the skin.

One of the benefits of a rice mask for the face is its ability to give light to the skin.

Rice masks are believed to reduce black spots on the face and provide an even brightening effect.

Thus, skin care products containing rice are often advertised as an option for brightening the skin.

3. Provides protection to the skin barrier

 

Did you know that our skin is protected by something called the “skin barrier” or layer of skin?

This layer is like a shield that protects the skin from bad things such as sunlight, bacteria, and dangerous chemicals.

Apart from protecting, this layer also helps prevent scratches and friction.

If the skin barrier is disturbed, the skin can experience dryness and various health problems, including atopic dermatitis. 

To make this layer stronger, using a rice mask could be the right choice.

According to research published in Acta Dermato-Venereologica, rice starch has been proven to be effective in repairing and increasing the skin’s natural strength

This benefit is potentially greater for someone with atopic dermatitis in particular, because rice masks are known to protect the skin, and relieve inflammation, rashes, and eczema.

4. Overcome Sunburn

 

Too long exposure to sunlight can cause skin burns or sunburn, especially if the skin is not properly protected.

This is a serious problem, especially for people whose facial skin is sensitive to sunlight.

Symptoms can include red skin, inflammation, and sometimes itching on the face

If you experience this, one way to overcome this is to use a rice mask.

The active ingredients in it can soothe inflamed skin. 

 

5. Soften the Skin

 

All women definitely want to have soft and radiant facial skin.

However, athere are many factors that can make skin look dull and rough, such as outdoor activities, exposure to pollution, UV rays, and a number of other things.

Therefore, it is important to use appropriate skin care products to maintain soft skin.

Apart from using a rice mask, you can also use rice water as a daily facial cleanser.

The method is very easy, just wet a cotton ball or cotton ball with rice water. 

Next, gently massage onto the face and let it dry to get maximum benefits. 

If irritation or other skin problems suddenly appear, don’t hesitate to consult a doctor straight away.
