The reason why Rice Water is great for the skin is that it is rich in many nutrients. To begin with, about 16% of its composition consists of proteins which are the building blocks of skin cells. It is also enriched with triglycerides, lipids and starch, all of which are responsible for skin improvement against skin aging. Carbohydrates, inositol, phytic acid and inorganic substances make up the rest of the composition, making rice water an ideal ingredient for obtaining glowing skin.
Rich in antioxidants, rice water has been shown to inhibit the action of elastase, a compound that causes damage to elastin in the skin and leads to premature aging. This is why rice water can be safely used to delay and reduce the appearance of signs of aging on the skin.
Some studies have found that rice starch can be helpful in repairing and maintaining the skin's natural barrier. This can be helpful in preparing the skin to prevent problems such as atopic dermatitis and to protect against the damage of pollution.
Rice water has an astringent effect on pores and toning when used on oily skin.
