Rice Powder for Skin Whitening

After a long tiring day, when you come home and look at yourself in the mirror, you can clearly see how pollution, sun rays, stress and other factors can affect your complexion.

Due to lack of time, many of us rely on quick fixes, however many of these can have negative effects on the skin. No concealer or foundation can match up the glow that comes naturally. Isn’t it? And the chemicals present in them can have adverse effects on the skin.

We’re always looking for that magic wand for whitening skin without harming it. Agreed?

Well, your wish has been granted. Home remedies are the most effective way to bring back the natural glow to your skin. Rice Powder or Rice Flour is an effective treatment for lightening blemishes and maintaining white skin.

  • The allantoin present in it soothes sun burns and promotes skin repair.
  • The tyrosinase present in it controls the production of melamine in the skin.
  • It removes excess oil and sebum from the skin.
