People have been searching the secret to looking younger for ages. But, it looks like this quest is hard to achieve. There are many anti-aging products available on the market that promise refreshing your face and better looking skin. However, many of these products have side effects.

The Japanese method that we are going to present you today is very close to the description ‘’elixir of youth.’’ Believe it or not, it gives amazing effects after one week.

The Japanese women are considered as one of the most beautiful women in the world. The magic formula to their pure and youthful look is the Japanese rice. This rice contains compounds such as ‘’squalene’’ and ‘’linoleic acid,’’ which have powerful antioxidant potential.

These compounds stimulate the production of collagen, which fights the development of wrinkles. Squalene protects the skin from harmful effects of sunlight exposure.

Additionally, rice is a rich source of ‘’gamma oryzanol,’’ which lowers the bad cholesterol levels and protects the heart. Plus, rice is high in vitamin E.

Scientists have proven the health benefits of rice and approved of its beauty benefits and its ability to rejuvenate the skin.

Rejuvenating “Japanese” Face Mask

You know that our mask of Japanese origin has rice as its basic element. Rich in vitamins and rejuvenating properties, it is worth the effort to apply this remedy at least twice a week.

What do I need to prepare my mask?

3 tablespoons organic brown rice

One and a half spoonfuls of distilled water

Two tablespoons of ripe avocado

Half a teaspoon of honey.

How do I prepare my mask?

The first thing we do is cook the rice. You use very little rice, as you can see, but we want to be sure that the mask is freshly made every time, since it is how to benefit from its characteristics.

Heat the rice until tender and then separate the water from the rice. Save the two items.

What we do now is to strain the rice and place it in another bowl and add the avocado and the honey. Use a spoon to stir the mixture well to create a fine, homogeneous paste. When you are ready, apply it to your skin.

Leave on your face for at least 15 or 20 minutes. Then use a cotton swab to remove it and wash your face with the rice water you previously reserved.

As you can see this facial mask of Japanese origin is very complete, simple and cheap. It allows us to benefit from both rice and rice water. If you prepare this remedy twice a week, it will rejuvenate your face every day. Try it!
