Rice Beauty Products
Rice is nice for scrubbing skin smooth, banishing shine and oil, and enhancing softness.
Bare Minerals 100% Natural Lipgloss ($15) An all-natural oil blend (plus rice bran wax as a creamy base) mixes into colorful glosses.
L'Occitane Angelica Ultra-Matte Fluid ($42) This serum imparts a smooth surface for makeup. Rice bran is the shine-busting superstar here.
Shiseido White Lucent Brightening Eye Treatment ($55) Poor circulation is a common cause of under-eye circles. This cream helps combat that with rice germ extract. Light-diffusing powder instantly brightens.
Juara Rice Facial Scrub ($29) Those with sensitive skin can get in on the scrubbing action with this gentle cleanser. Rice protein helps soften skin and prevents moisture loss.
Tarte Gifted Mascara ($19) Rice wax helps lengthen lashes, while clay hydrates and strengthens brittle ones. Wearers reported that their lashes appeared four times as voluminous.
Simple Smoothing Facial Scrub ($7) For stronger buffing power, try this vitamin-packed exfoliator. Rice granules do sloughing duty here.
Tatcha Polished ($65) Rice bran enzyme has been used as a skin smoother in Japan for more than 200 years, and you'll find it in this finely milled powder. Wet it into a paste, and apply daily.
