Even though there have been attempts to find the ‘elixir of youth’ that will help people stay young forever, none of them was successful. Namely, as you probably already know, there is an abundance of cosmetic products on the market whose aim is to slow down the aging process; however, most of them are ineffective or too expensive.

Luckily, the Japanese have a powerful natural cure that can help you look much younger within one week! This is probably one of the main reasons why Japanese women are mostly good-looking, youngish, and beautiful. It appears that the secret of their good looks is hidden in rice.

Rice contains squalene and linoleic acid that have antioxidant characteristics and encourage the production of collagen, which is known to fight off the occurrence of wrinkles. Wrinkles are one of the most common signs of aging. Also, squalene is known to protect the skin from harmful UV rays. Rice is rich in gamma oryzanol that lowers the cholesterol and strengthens the heart.

According to scientists, rice has the ability to rejuvenate the skin within a short period of time. In order to do that, you should prepare the following natural facial mask:

You will need:

3 tbsp of rice

A tbsp of milk

A tbsp of honey

Preparation: Cook the rice for 2 minutes and then strain it. Put the liquid in a separate bowl for later use. Mix the rice with the honey and warm milk.

Use: Wash the face and pat it dry and then apply the mixture. Leave it to dry and then rinse it off with the water in which the rice was cooked. For optimal results, repeat the procedure weekly.
