What is the secret to healthy, glowing skin by the Japanese?
Good skin takes work but with the right ingredients, it can be healthy and glowing. Japanese women are renowned for their skin and the secret is inositol, the antioxidant released from rice when water is added.
What are the benefits of rice on your skin?
Used in skin care, rice has so many benefits. It͛s a natural physical exfoliant and the consistency can be made rough or soft depending on how much water is added. It also releases a powerful antioxidant that brightens skin and fights free radicals that age the skin and make it look older.
How do you use Prep Bod to it’s fullest potential?
To use our rice scrub and soak to its͛ fullest potential we have two main ways to use it.
Pour it into a hot bath and soak in the starchy water. After 5 minutes, take another handful and add enough water to make it the constancy of wet sand (the less water you add the rougher it is) and then smother all over in circular motions- out of the water so you don’t lose it all… or…
Stand in a hot shower for 5 minutes to soften your skin, take a handful of prep and add enough water to your desired consistency, turn your taps off and scrub all over for a few minutes. Rinse. (We recommend doing this while you have conditioner or a hair mask in because who doesn͛t love efficiency?)
Frequency of use?
You can use it daily or weekly depending on the consistency. If you’re prepping for a spray tan, we’d recommend daily for 3 days prior to your tan followed by a hydrating oil (watch this space for exciting things to come).
