Saffron Rice Water to Soften The Skin

As we grow, our skin demands extra care. The hormonal, chemical, and physical changes in our body and the weather conditions make our skin look so bad.

We must have set some skincare routines to keep the freshness of our skin alive.

Power of Saffron Rice Water?

Rice water is used in many face packs as it is loaded with minerals, vitamins, and acids that are essential for healthy, beautiful, and glowing skin. The antioxidants and other acids present in rice water make an organic compound. This compound contains soothing and healing properties.

Saffron is among the most expensive but most beneficial spices in the world. The benefits of saffron are not limited to your body from the inside as you eat or drink it, but you can use saffron for skin too. It is great if you pick saffron for skin pigmentation. The anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties of saffron that treat acne nurture the skin and make the skin blemish-free.

  • Strain the rice water, add a pinch of saffron, and set aside. Pour this rice water into an airtight jar and keep it in your fridge for a week.
  • Pour some of the rice water on a cotton pad and do a massage on your face. Allow it to dry. Make it an everyday skincare routine or twice or thrice a week for softer and smoother skin with vitamins and minerals.
