Often described as having flawless, radiant, dewy and youthful skin, Japanese women must do something differently from the rest of us, something else that allows such great preservation of beautiful, youthful skin. How do they maintain their porecelain-like skin well into their later years? Rice bran oil must be the answer.
Rice bran powder, rice water, and rice bran oil are staples in the beauty arsenals of Japanese women. They credit rice bran derivatives with keeping their faces wrinkle free and smooth.
Rice bran oil is popular as a “healthy oil” in Japan but also in India.
It improves skin’s elasticity, making it appear more youthful and plump.
It hydrates the skin and helps it to retain moisture, making your skin softer and smoother.
It can help to renew and improve skin’s surface by boosting skin’s natural regeneration process.
Rice bran oil nourishes skin cells with vitamins and antioxidants, slowing down and preventing aging process. It’s easily absorbed into the skin, so it’s not likely to increase oiliness, but will add a youthful glow to your skin. Glow and shine are not one and the same in skin-care .
Helps to brighten and to even texture skin texture in less than a week from my personal experience. Rice bran oil is one of my favorite skin oils because it penetrates skin and does not lay on top of it making it greasy and nothing else .It has anti-inflammatory properties and can help sooth and calm down irritated skin without clogging pores or aggravating acne.It helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines (also helps to prevent them).
This amazing oil is also great and beneficial for your hair and the rest of the body.
It can rejuvenate dull looking hair and leave behind a gorgeous shine.
How do I use this oil ?
For my body I mix few drops in my shower gel and I also mix it with few drops of a favorite essential oil for a body massage. Now that I think of it, I will also try to add it as an ingredient to a body scrub, replacing the almond oil .
For face/neck I used rice bran oil, in the evening( few hours before bed) on cleansed skin followed by a simple massage or as an ingredient in a home made facial mask .
For my hair I use the rice bran oil once in every 2 weeks and I leave it over night. I trully believe that the nice shine of my hair is due to this amazing oil.
Have you tried rice bran oil in your beauty and skin care routine ?
