Rice Water Hack
Some beauty trends on social media (e.g., pore extraction and chemical peels using high-strength acids) can be unsafe or provide little to no benefit. However, there's a trend that licensed aestheticians don't hate, and it involves using rice water as a simple facial treatment, toner, or a soothing lotion. While research is still ongoing, rice water isn't harmful to the skin and may provide some benefits like removing excess oil, hydrating the skin, and improving the appearance of pores. Of course, we recommend sticking with tried and tested products for the best results, but there's no harm in giving this trend a try.
