Japanese women have been using rice not only in the kitchen, but also in their beauty treatments for centuries. This is the secret of their fresh and beautiful look, not matter how old they are.
Rice water, rice oil or rice powder will clear your skin, make it smooth and remove the dark and age spots. Use them topically, but also consume more rice to benefit from its antioxidant properties as much as you can.
Rice is very rich in antioxidants like linoleic acid and squalene, which help the production of collagen, which protects the skin from wrinkles. Squalene is also known to protect the skin from damages caused by exposure to the sun.
Other nutrients contained in rice, which are useful for the skin, as well as the cholesterol levels and heart health, are vitamin E and gamma oryznol. This makes rice one of the best ingredients for skin rejuvenation.
