Hey Girls, hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year break. As we return back to our busy schedules, let me share something I started using recently and it works well with my skin: Korean Rice Water for a Glowing Skin.
How to make Korean rice water for a glowing skin
Incorporating Korean rice water into your skincare routine is a simple and cost-effective way to achieve a radiant and glowing skin.
Korean rice water, known for its skin-beneficial properties, has been a traditional beauty secret in Korean skincare routines for centuries. Packed with nutrients, this simple yet effective DIY recipe can help you achieve a glowing complexion.
Here’s how you can make Korean rice water for radiant skin:
Uncooked Rice: Begin with a small cup of uncooked rice. Option you can use any type of rice for the best results.
Water: You’ll need approximately 2 cups of water for soaking the rice and extracting the rice water.
Step 1: Rinse the rice
Take the uncooked rice and rinse it thoroughly under cold running water. This helps remove any impurities or surface contaminants.
Step 2: Soak the rice
Place the rinsed rice in a bowl and add about 2 cups of water. Let the rice soak for 15–30 minutes. During this time, the water will begin to take on a cloudy appearance.
Step 3: Agitate and extract rice water
After the rice has soaked, agitate it by gently rubbing the grains between your fingers. This action helps release the beneficial nutrients into the water. Strain the rice water into a clean bowl, separating it from the rice grains.
Step 4: Fermentation Optional
For enhanced benefits, you can opt for fermentation. Leave the strained rice water at room temperature for 24–48 hours. Fermentation increases the nutrient content and makes the rice water more potent.

Step 5: Storage
Once fermented (if you choose this option), store the rice water in a clean, airtight container in the refrigerator. The cold temperature not only preserves its freshness but also provides a refreshing sensation when applied to the skin.
How to use it
1) Cleansing: Use the rice water as a cleanser by applying it to your face using a cotton pad. Gently wipe your face to remove impurities and traces of makeup. This acts as a gentle, natural cleanser that won’t strip your skin of its natural oils.
2) Toning: Apply the rice water as a toner. Use a cotton ball or pad to gently dab the rice water on your face. The toning properties help balance the skin’s pH, promoting a smoother complexion.
3) Mask: Mix the rice water with other natural ingredients like honey or aloe vera gel to create a hydrating face mask. Apply the mixture evenly and leave it on for 15–20 minutes before rinsing with lukewarm water.
4) Bath Soak: For an indulgent skincare routine, add rice water to your bath. The nutrients can nourish your entire body, leaving your skin hydrated.
See you next month, have a wonderful time.
