How to make rice water toner
Things you will need
- Organic rice – 1/4 cup
- Filtered water – ¾ cup
Take a clean bowl and add organic rice and water to it. Keep it aside for about 1 hour and then filter the water. Our rice water is ready to be used. Fill it in a spray bottle and refrigerate it.
Make sure to use organic rice because we don’t want a concoction of pesticides for our face.
To make fermented rice water, keep the collected rice water in room temperature for about 24 to 32 hours until it turns slightly sour.

Rice water has an enzyme that helps to heal acne. Mix equal portion of green tea powder and rice water and apply this all over your face and neck. This heals acne when used regularly.
Just like aloe vera, rice water has the ability to soothe sunburn. Rice water immediately cools down your skin and prevents the sunburn from getting worse with time. Apply rice water on sunburnt skin to calm down the skin.
