Tea Tree and Forbidden Rice Facial Wash
Two ingredients are all you need to make an invigorating, complexion-clearing facial wash. Revive skin with rice—its hard outer layer, called the bran, has potent antioxidant activity—and this exotic type is one of nature’s most antioxidant-rich foods. Antibacterial tea tree oil helps fight blemishes.
1 1/2-2 cups water
½ cup forbidden rice
3 drops tea tree oil
Heat water on medium heat until it is very warm (not boiling). Add forbidden rice and let sit for at least 30 minutes. Turn heat off, drain, and add tea tree oil to water. Allow water to cool slightly (should feel warm but comfortable to the touch). Use before bed or in the morning three times per week. Store in fridge.
