How to incorporate rice water into your skincare routine:
Rice water can be used as a toner or a hydration mask. To use the rice water as a toner, after cleansing your face, you just need to apply it on your skin using a cotton pad or spray it on your face. If you want to use rice water as a mask simply soak cotton pads in the rice water for a few min and palace the soaked pads on your face, keep them for 10–15 min. Follow up with your regular moisturizer.
