So I read a number of girls raving how water used to wash the rice is great for washing their faces. Apparently the benefits for them are smoother and fairer skin. I remember it was said that steam from cooking rice is great for the face when I watched Jewel In The Palace but I haven’t learnt anything about the rice water though. However, I know that we should be washing our rice grains sparingly so as not to lose the nutrients. I suppose that’s why the water used is beneficial.
