Japanese Face Mask Recipe with Rice
- Take a bowl of rice and cook it in a vessel filled with water in the low heat.

- To rinse off the mask use the water that was drained from the rice in the first step.
- Need not use all of the rice water, one can use it with proper refrigeration for up to 4 days.
- You can also use this liquid as a toner by applying it to your face and neck every morning and night before you go to bed.
- Another way of using it is by icing it as cubes and rubbing them on your face.
The mask contains milk and honey which can give glow, smoothness and moisture to the skin. Rice can add brightness and blood flow to the skin. The rice water toning is effective as it cleanses the skin and tightens the pores preventing it from clogging.
Japanese Face Mask Recipe with Green Tea

Green Tea is filled with anti-oxidants that remove and kill the dead cells thereby unclogging the pores. It also brightens the skin when mixed with rice flour and helps in fighting acne and other skin problems. Green Tea is best used because of its anti-ageing properties. It contains anti-inflammatory properties that are capable of delaying skin ageing thereby reducing lines and wrinkles.
