5 Homemade Rice Flour Face Packs For Glowing Skin !

rice flour face packs

I wanted to share five rice flour face packs that will help lighten scars, blemishes and dark spots from your skin. Rice flour also called as rice powder is just finely ground up rice. Almost every day our skin is exposed to pollution, harsh chemicals and scorching sun light and it does take a toll on our skin resulting in dark spots, pigmentation and dullness. Instead of resorting to harsh chemical peels and creams to get back the skin to former glory, it is best to use natural remedies like rice flour face packs that are gentle on the skin.

Rice Flour Skin Benefits:

1. For Skin Lightening:

One of my favorite ingredients for lightening all the scars and blemishes is rice flour. Rice flour has wonderful skin lightening properties. When I mention skin lightening, what I really mean is lighten scars, dark spots and pigmentation. Every skin color is beautiful but it will be more beautiful if it is even toned and rice flour helps achieve it easily by lightening all skin blemishes.

2. For Anti Ageing:

The bio active compounds found in rice bran are called ferulic acid, gamma-oryzanol and phytic acid.  They are wonderful antioxidants and have been used in many skin creams to prevent skin ageing and to repair damaged skin.

3. Natural Skin Healer:

Even a simple act of adding a tbsp of rice flour to bath water and soaking in it has wonderful healing properties and can greatly heal damaged skin, you can read the study that supports this claim here.

4. Improves Skin Elasticity:

Regular use of rice flour on our face and skin can improve skin elasticity, reduce roughness of the skin and can lighten our skin. Try to use rice flour for skin care at least weekly once to see good results.

5. Evens Out Skin Tone:

If you are suffering from hyper pigmentation, I would highly suggest using rice flour, turmeric and besan face pack given below. It even out the skin tone really really well.

    Thank you for your post! Per your intro, I hoped/expected to find a specific mask for anti-aging! Perhaps your recommendations will work for this as well but I am specifically searching for a fine-line and expression-line (forehead and smile craters! hehe) remedies. Any advice there?
