  1. I haven’t used rice water for beauty purposes yet mainly due to its starchy and slippy texture. After reading the post I am highly tempted to try it out.! Let me see if it works for me 🙂

  2. Now a days rice is adulterated and we wash the rice multipe times before cooking it … How can the rice water be clean for skin and hair in such a case ?
