Many people are strongly assured that Japanese people are the ones who live the healthiest and longest, thanks to their natural and healthy lifestyles. But aside from being the healthiest, they are also the youngest-looking, and it has been a secret how they managed to maintain their youth and beauty up until now.
In this article, we are going to reveal one of the most sacred remedies that the Japanese culture has to offer, which will help make your skin look radiant and healthy.
The main ingredient in this incredible homemade face mask is the famous sushi rice, and despite sounding odd, believe it or not, it provides some incredible results, like no other commercial product does.
For starters, sushi rice is loaded with squalene and linoleic acid, two powerful antioxidants which promote the production of collagen and therefore make our skin elastic again, eventually eliminating wrinkles. It also contains phenolic compounds which have potent anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce skin irritation and redness.
With regular use, this face mask will help you look at least 5-10 years younger.
Ingredients you will need to prepare the face mask:
- 3 tbsp. of Rice
- 1 tbsp. of Warm milk
- 1 tbsp. of Raw honey
Start off by cooking the rice for 2-3 minutes, before removing it from the pot and storing the water aside for a later use. Once done, mix the rice with the milk and honey until you end up with a smooth paste-like consistency. Apply the paste on your previously washed skin and let it sit until it dries. Once it does, wash your face with the rice water. It is recommended that your repeat this procedure at least once a week, and your wrinkles will be removed while your skin will be hydrated and smooth like it once was.
