11 Rice Flour Face Packs For Glowing Skin

To get healthy, glowing skin is the desire of many. You might have tried many expensive salon treatments to achieve that as well. Unfortunately, they don't work as well as you would think. And if they do, the glow doesn't last long.

But, what if we tell you that the secret to naturally glowing skin is in your kitchen? We're talking about rice flour. Rice is an ingredient of our daily meal and we love rice. Well, including rice in your skin care routine can add a natural glow to your face.
