Skin Soothing Rice Flour Face Pack
Don’t we just feel like putting our face in the freezer once we come home from scorching heat? Bit weird but it’s true. Due to constant sun exposure, our face doesn’t get only tanning but it also experiences the burning sensations. Do you think just splashing the cold water on the face would work? How about soothing it with Rice flour.
Prepare a smooth mask by mixing a tablespoon of rice flour with about two teaspoons of cold milk. Yes, cold milk straight out of your refrigerator. Mix it well and put it on your face after cleansing with a face wash. Let it sit on your face for at least 15 mins. Wash it off with cold water and rub an ice cube over it to close the pores. Experience the relaxed and soother skin. Regular usage of this mask would also help in de-tanning and skin brightening.
Chocolaty Exfoliating Rice Flour Face Pack
Now for this recipe, you would need to grind the rice bit coarsely at home. This would be an exfoliating scrub hence we would need that texture accordingly. This exfoliating scrub can be used on the face as well as on the body. Most of us love to indulge in body spas and body polishing treatments. Now get that similar experience at home. This scrub helps to exfoliate the skin, remove dead skin cells and also nourish the skin. Who doesn’t love to pamper the skin with yummy chocolate?
Take 2 tablespoons of Rice flour, one tablespoon of Chocolate powder or cocoa powder whichever is available with you, one tablespoon of white sugar or brown sugar and two tablespoons of Honey. Now mix these ingredients well and prepare thick scrub. Get into the shower and massage this scrub on your wet skin in a circular motion. Try to focus more on the dead skin areas such as knees, elbows, and feet. Do this process for at least 5 to 8 minutes and take a shower. Pat dry your skin and see the glow on it. No need to put moisturizer as chocolate and honey work as nourishing agents. You can use this scrub twice a week to keep your skin youthful and glowing.
