Rice Water Benefits: HERE's how it can do wonders for your skin and hair

When it comes to skincare and haircare, most of us usually apply products that are chemical free, are organic and are of a well-known brand. But often we tend to forget that whatever we buy has some or the other form of chemical, fragrance or colour. And we can never get 100 percent chemical-free. But what we can get instead is glowing skin and luscious locks by using products that are available to us easily at home. Yes, I am talking about the home ingredients that are easily available in our kitchen. And one such ingredient is rice water. 


Rice water, which is nothing but water in which rice has been left to soak/boil for a while contains benefits aplenty, and adding it to your beauty regime will enhance your skin and hair health in the most natural and chemical-free way. Read below to find out how it can benefit your skin and hair in multiple ways. 


Skin benefits of rice water


Protects your skin against the sun:


Rice water acts as a natural sunscreen and protects your skin from harmful UV rays. It can also treat sunburns and will help to open the tighten pores. Apply it on sun-damaged skin, and it will help your skin recover faster. 


Had anti-ageing components:


Worries about the premature signs of ageing, using rice water for better-looking skin. Rice water is rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, flavonoids and phenolic compounds. Also, it contains ferulic acid and allantoin, all of which are necessary for skin function. 


Helps to improve complexion:


One of the key functions of rice water is even skin tone. Dip a cotton ball in fermented rice water and massage it into your face. You’ll find sun spots, pigmentation and freckles lightening.


Hair benefits of rice water


Helps with frizzy hair:


Research states that using rice water can improve elasticity, texture and lesser friction and frizz. It is largely due to the presence of inositol, a carbohydrate that's there in rice water. 


Balances scalp's pH levels:


Rice water helps to keep your hair's natural oils intact, and its pH levels are similar to that of the scalp! Add a few drops of essential oils to rice water and replace this mix with your regular shampoo.


Improves hair growth:


Rice water is quite beneficial for reducing hair fall. The amino acids present in rice water help in the regeneration of hair and aid faster growth of your hair. It also contains vitamins B, C and E, which further help in hair growth.
