A rice facial mask can gently exfoliate your skin, add moisture and brighten your skin tone, but you can’t use the actual grains for a face mask. Instead, save the grains for stir fry and use rice flour or rice water to make a homemade rice facial mask. A rice facial mask is suitable for all skin types, including those with acne, sensitive skin or dry skin. You don’t have to go to a spa or spend a ton of cash on store-bought rice facials -- you can whip up a simple recipe right at home with all-natural and inexpensive ingredients.

Rice Water Facial

Step 1

Pour 1/2 cup of rice into a bowl. Add enough water to fill the bowl about 1 inch above the rice. Stir well with a spoon.

Step 2

Let the rice sit in the water until it looks cloudy -- about 30 to 60 minutes. Pour the rice and water through a sieve into a clean bowl to separate the rice and water.

Step 3

Use a pair of scissors to cut eye, nose and mouth holes in a paper towel to use for your mask. Soak the paper towel in the rice water for 10 minutes.

Step 4

Remove the paper towel carefully and wring it out gently. Lay down and place the paper towel on your face for 15 minutes.

Rice-Flour Facial

Step 1

Peel a small potato with a knife. Grate the raw potato with a cheese grater.

Step 2

Put a handful of the grated potato into your hand. Squeeze it over a bowl to extract the juice.

Step 3

Add rice flour to the potato juice, a pinch at a time. Stir the juice as you’re adding the rice flour until it turns into a paste.

Step 4

Smooth the paste onto your face with your fingertips. Leave it on for 10 to 20 minutes before rinsing with warm water.
