Kitchen Remedies: Rice

Rice, the staple grain cherished in countless cuisines worldwide, is more than just a kitchen essential – it's a versatile powerhouse of possibilities.
Moisture Absorber
Place a bowl of uncooked rice in areas prone to excess moisture, such as closets or cabinets. The rice acts as a natural desiccant, absorbing humidity and preventing dampness and mold.
Rice Water Toner
Soak a cup of rice in water for 30 minutes, strain, and collect the infused water. Use it as a toner by applying to your face with a cotton pad. Rice water helps balance pH levels, tighten pores, and brighten complexion.
Rice Scrub
Grind uncooked rice into a fine powder and mix with honey or yogurt to create a gentle exfoliating scrub. Massage onto damp skin in circular motions to exfoliate
Rice Face Mask
Blend cooked rice with ingredients like avocado, honey, or aloe vera gel to make a hydrating face mask. Apply the mixture to clean skin, leave on for 15-20 minutes, then rinse off with warm water
