Rice water is rich with minerals that are amazing for your skin and hair — using the cooled water left after boiling rice is a tip passed down from Japanese geishas for centuries. It's also rich in anti-oxidants and helps prevent hyper-pigmentation and age spots.
No rice water? There are several beauty products out there that are based in the benefits of rice, like Chaintecaille's Rice & Geranium Foaming Cleanser and Tatcha's Rice Enzyme Powder, which is a favorite among celebrity makeup artists.
How to use it: Soak a cotton pad in rice water and tone your face after cleansing with it, and a complex of vitamins called 'inositol' will promote cell growth and stimulate blood flow.
