The Beauty Glossary: R is for Rice

Our Beauty Glossary is your definitive guide to every important beauty term ever. From A – Z, we’ll regularly fill you in on beauty ingredients, personalities, products and treatments, so you know exactly who or what to look out for in the beauty space.

As an ingredient rice needs no introduction, but since we decoded what oats and quinoa can do you for your skin and hair, let’s discuss the role this kitchen cupboard staple plays in your beauty routines too.

For velveteen skin, load your arsenal with products containing rice bran oil. This is a beauty secret that hails from Asia. Japanese ladies apply rice bran oil directly to their skin and hair because it’s rich in vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants. It’s a great source of vitamin E and fatty acids, and will penetrate deep into the skin’s layers, improving elasticity and giving you a youthful plump.

Rice proteins can help improve your skin’s moisture barrier, just what it needs to guard itself from environmental aggressors.
