The beauty of Japanese women lies in an ancient secret: rice. They owe their nice looks to this gift of nature.

The secret of rice is its richness in linoleic acid and squalene, antioxidants that stimulate the production of collagen, which is the main suspect for getting rid of wrinkles. The squalene protects the skin from sun rays, and rice is also full of vitamin E and gamma oryzanol, which has the ability to protect the heart and also lower cholesterol. But most people are not aware of the effects of rice, except the Japanese of course.

Rice works wonders for your skin, but you should try for yourself with this simple mask, an old Japanese recipe which will give you perfect skin!

The ingredients are 1 tablespoon of milk, 1 tablespoon of honey and 3 tablespoons of rice.

How do you prepare it? Simple. The rice should be cooked and then drained in the same water. A tablespoon of warm milk is then put into the dish with rice, and at the end you just add the tablespoon of honey and mix all of it well.

The prepared mask should be put on a dry face and be allowed to dry for a while. Then, you rinse and clean the face with the water the rice was cooked in.

The secret of rice water? Its antioxidant properties. It hydrates the skin and stimulates blood flow, thus helping with the removal of wrinkles and reducing inflammation.

To achieve the best results, use the mask once a week – you will be speechless when you look yourself in the mirror – a new, younger you!
