This amazing DIY Japanese beauty treatment can make you look younger by 10 years!
Women and men all over the world are trying various beauty products to make them look younger and healthier. We see our market of cosmetics laden with products, claiming to give you suppler and younger looking skin. While anti-ageing creams are capturing the market head on, there are a few ancient Japanese beauty treatment recipes that will help you reverse the age effects!
1 From the land of Japan
We came across one such beautiful ancient recipe by the Japanese that is simple and light years ahead from the existing products. For years, the beauty standards of Japanese women have enthralled the world. Considered one of the most beautiful women in the world, Japanese women thrive on the beauty benefits of one magical ingredient- rice.
Advantages of rice
Rice has been scientifically proven to have many advantageous properties for the skin and body. Before moving on to the actual recipe, here we outline the four best anti-ageing properties that rice has:
Rice contains sumptuous amounts of Linoleic acid and Squalene, which are powerful antioxidants and keep your skin fresh and younger looking.
These antioxidants stimulate the production of collagen that prevents and slows down the appearance of wrinkles and keeps the skin young.
One of the other properties of squalene is that it guards the skin from the harmful UV rays! This in particular is great for the environment today, as the biggest threat to our skin are the UV rays!
Rice is also rich in Vitamin E and gamma oryzanol that lowers cholesterol, which in turn prevents the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases. This effect keeps your immunity strong and your heart pumping at its best! When your immunity is high, your skin looks and feels fresh automatically.
All major Japanese beauty treatments include rice as the staple ingredient for skin rejuvenation. Many ancient Japanese beauty treatment recipes, like the one we will be mentioning in this post, call for a homemade skin mask made from rice. These recipes have been proven to smoothen out your skin and diminish the appearance of wrinkles.
