Rice water is not a miracle cure, but a slow, healing process. While youâll see visible benefits using it for a few days or even weeks, to reap its real benefits means making a lifestyle change.
Itâll need to be a part of your daily routine just as much as eating breakfast or brushing your teeth. Also, try to get certified organic white rice, since non-organic versions may have extensive traces of dirt, pollutants, bacteria and pesticides that you are privy to, resulting in skin problems like eczema and so on.
Since the product is homemade, it doesnât contain preservatives. So youâll need to keep an eye out for when itâs going bad and quickly make a new fresh batch every couple of days.
Apart from all this drinking rice water everyday will boost your overall health including your skin health too; so think twice before you throw away rice water!
