14 Apr An ancient rice water beauty ritual from China! Evelyn’s Secrets – Ancient Beauty Secrets #01

Hey guys! I am excited to kick off our first series of beauty secrets today! I will be covering ancient beauty rituals from all around the world every Friday. I feel like I have learned a lot from my ten years of travels and my fascination with different beauty secrets from various cultures has only grown as time passed. My globetrotting lifestyle has given me the opportunity to try some really whacky, but helpful beauty tips and now I would love to pass on my secrets to you. Like all rituals, even beauty secrets need to be repeated time and time again to have their best effect, more so if they are natural. As life evolves slowly, so does our skin and hair renew slowly. So have some patience and move with the rhythm of life as you enter the ancient world of beauty secrets. Enjoy every step of your beauty ritual knowing that it will edify your body and health just like it has for thousands of years to other beauty lovers.

The first Ancient Beauty Secret I will share with you today I learned on my first trip to Sikkim during the shoot for my film Yaariyan. Sikkim is all the way up north-east of India and borders Chinese Tibet and Nepal. There I learned that in a small southern village in China, you will find a group of women from the Yao ethnic group that have the longest, most beautiful hair in the world.

Women in China, like women in India, seem to believe that having long hair is a sign of prosperity, health, and good fortune, so traditionally they only cut it once in their lives when they are about to get married.

So, what’s their secret?

Women in China, Japan, and Southeast Asia have been using fermented rice water for centuries to rinse their hair. Fermented rice water, you ask? YES! Basically, after you wash your rice, use the white, cloudy water to rinse your hair.

The Yao women claim that the starch of the rice water holds the key to having black hair past the age of 80 and if you ever meet them you will see that these ladies really do look like they hold the secret to youthfulness.

There are even studies that show that using rice water on your skin can help reduce the size of your pores and prevent your skin from ageing, so I use the water to wash your face every other day and it feels sooo good! I have been using it since almost two years, and let me tell you – it works! Pouring this milky liquid through my hair made me feel so much more in touch with nature, which is something really beautiful. We don’t realize it, but most beauty regimens begin with nature! Thinking of how the rice was harvested and carried home and how women have been bathing in it’s milky white water for thousands of years…

What a beautiful thought to appreciate mother earth! Next time you are in your kitchen cooking rice, remember that there is a beauty secret even in the water you have been throwing away so quickly all this while!

And yes! This beauty secret works for boys too!

Love,
Evelyn

      Hi Pari! I’m so happy to hear that my beauty secrets are helping you out! Stretch marks are a problem for all of us, boys and girls equally. And it’s almost impossible to get rid of them because they are broken tissue, similar to scars. You can try applying a scar cream to decrease their visibility. If they are very strong, consult a dermatologist, I’ve heard there are laser treatments you could inquire about! I would say don’t worry, we always see our own “imperfections” much more than others 🙂 You’re beautiful just the way you are!

    How to we make the fermented rice water? Do we have to wash raw rice and then collect the water and ferment it overnight? or do we use cooked rice? 🙂
