(Shh…I wanna know if I tell you a secret, will you keep it? ) The secret that the Joseon women and men knew, for their beautiful skin, was using rice to cleanse their faces. For centuries, rice was used as an essential ingredient in beauty for the people of Joseon. It was the anecdotal wisdom of cleansing with rice, passed down for generations, which allowed for these people to have porcelain-like skin. It even surprised the western missionaries when they first came to Korea!
During the Joseon Dynasty, people put rice in little tea bags and used it to soak out the rice water. Another way was to use rice water from rinsing rice. It was said that it has brightening and cleansing effects on the skin, to make one’s face brighter looking.
They were correct. Recently, it was scientifically proven that rice has deep cleansing properties, which give you the beautiful, bright skin that you have always dreamed of. In addition, rice is deemed to be safe when used for cleansing and exfoliating. Both of which are really important when it comes to having healthy skin, can be obtained with the one secret ingredient that the people of Joseon knew about: rice.
As we move into the modern age, the effects of rice on skin have been studied to find more benefits of using rice as an ingredient for cleansing. Rice has been found to be plentiful in antioxidants, which have anti-aging properties by enhancing skin elasticity and tightness. It is also found to be soothing for those with UV-induced skin damage and eczema patients. With scientific evidence backing up the benefits, interest in rice as an ingredient for skincare has been gaining momentum.
