Beauty Tip # 3: Rice Flour Scrub as a Gentle Exfoliator

If you have sensitive skin, skin that breaks out easily or skin that is oil with dry patches; you should not be using traditional scrubs for your face. The store-bought scrubs are often too harsh and chemically and will further damage your skin. Of course, exfoliation is important. The best thing for your skin is to use a gentle and fine exfoliator that does not irritate the skin. This is why I recommend using Rice flour Scrub

The Method

Please Note that I recommend grinding your own rice flour as the store bought versions are too superfine to act as an exfoliator.

Important: If you are allergic to turmeric leave it out, I recommend doing a patch test 48 hours earlier.

How to Make the Scrub?


½ Cup Semi-Coarse Home Ground Rice Flour

¼ Cup Gram Flour

½ Tsp. Tumeric Powder


  1. First soak half a cup of rice in water over night.
  2. In the morning drain the rice and spread out on an absorbent cloth and leave for 3 hours. Do not let rice dry completely. They should still fell cool and wet to the fingers after this; but the excess moisture must be gone, leaving only the water that has already been absorbed into the rice.
  3. Now put the rice into an electric grinder and grind until they become powder.
  4. After this sieve it through a coarse mesh sieve to get out any large fragments.
  5. Spread the rice on a tray and let sit in the hot sun, covered by a thin cloth.
  6. After 3 hours it should be relatively dry. Now, mix in the Gram flour and turmeric.
  7. Put the mixture in a sterilized jar and keep in the fridge.
  8. Should keep for a month.

How to Use?

Use a about a teaspoon-full of rice flour scrub to scrub your face gently once or twice a week.
