Rice products, in many forms, are a popular ingredient in women's beauty regime, particularly in Asian countries. They have been utilised for centuries for their vitamin richness and  ability to revitalize your skin’s natural glow. Rice is full of amino acids that nourishes the skin which can improve texture, radiance, spot control and wrinkles. In its variety of forms, it is a natural anti-aging and anti-inflammatory product which can be used in face masks, facial scrubs, body scrubs, sunscreen, soothing for sunburn and skin whitening. It has incredible oil-absorbing properties which aid with oily or acne-prone skin, as well as dull mature skin. It can be used to make the skin smoother and fairer, naturally. Rice in powder form is also utilized in natural make up recipes such as translucent powder which can bring a smooth radiance to the face, and when used over foundation, increases the longevity of the makeup.

 

Up until now we have only had one rice product that allows it  to have a smooth finish in make up uses. We are now introducing a larger particle size of ground rice. Rice Sand is more suited towards skincare regimens requiring a fine scrub. We have a great face mask recipe to get you started and show you what Rice Sand can do. 
 
Bentonite Clay Face Mask

This recipe is for 1 use and should be made just before use as it does not include any preservatives to maintain it. 

I used the Plastic Scoop - Medium for easy measuring. 

3 g Bentonite Clay 
3 g Rice Sand
Approx 5 ml of Floral Water  (I used Rose Hydrosol or you can use regular water)
Non-metal container

Step 1. Mix the clay and sand in a non-metal container
Step 2. Add the water and mix until at a smooth paste consistency, adding more water if necessary.
Step 3. Apply to face in a even layer and leave for 10 minutes until the clay is dry
Step 4. Wash off with luke-warm water in circular motions to gently exfoliate with the Rice Sand
