Every few days, I like to add brown rice flour, a natural and gentle exfoliating ingredient, to my oil cleansing regime. It helps remove dead skin cells, reduces inflammation, and leaves my skin oh so soft and smooth. For easy dispensing, store your brown rice flour in a shaker bottle – a salt / pepper / spice shaker is perfect.
To add brown rice flour to your oil cleansing regime, simply put a quarter-size amount of brown rice flour onto your palm, and add your oil cleansing mixture to it. Rub both hands together to warm up the oil and to mix the flour with the oil. Then continue with your regular regime. You might need to wipe your face an additional time to remove all of the flour, but that should be it!
You can also use brown rice flour with water only. Put a quarter-size amount of flour onto your palm and add just enough water to make a thick paste, and then apply the paste to your whole face (avoiding the eyes) in circular motion. Let it sit on your face for a few minutes, and then wash it off with lukewarm water.
That’s it! A very gentle, natural, and affordable natural exfoliant!
