Advantages and disadvantages of DIY graphite

Among the pluses is definitely the fact that the DIY Fermented Rice Water Toner is even approved by a dermatologist, @Luke Maxfield, so we already feel safer using it on our face. Among the benefits listed by Luke Maxfield, in addition to being cheap and quick, is that the fermented rice toner is rich in antioxidants, helps protect against UV damage (but doesn’t replace the protection), strengthens the skin. barrier and helps fight skin blemishes.

However, he warns us that not all types of rice have the same beneficial effects and since it is fermented the smell is not the best. In fact, it could test a sensitive nose and a weak stomach.

Also, like all things made at home and not in a sterile lab, you have to pay attention to how things are going in the jar, so it’s important to observe what’s going on each day, remember that while it’s bubbling, you can see the yeast at the bottom and it has a sour smell everything is fine.

Throw everything away when you see black mold on the surface and smell something rotten.


Reply to @. If this is your first time making fermented rice water, I suggest you ferment it lightly by leaving it at room temperature for 1-2 days, then refrigerate and use within 2 weeks. I personally prefer to ferment it at room temperature for 1 to 7 days, before storing it in the fridge. In the first few days, it is normal to see bubbles and white yeast forming on top. Most of the yeast will eventually become heavy and sink to the bottom. Yeast is harmless and different from mold. It is flat and thready in texture. If you prefer, you can drain and discard it before using just the rice water. A sour odor is also normal and is often described as smelling like “old corn,” “beer,” “baby puke,” or “egg.” Interestingly, in my personal experience, the smell becomes less strong after 7 days and then on the 2nd or 3rd day. It will also continue to be milder after being refrigerated. When the fermented water goes bad, you will see visible mold. Initially, a thin film will form. Later, it will become blurry in texture (not flat). It can be white, grey, black, yellow or green. The jar will also have a rotten smell. If it does, throw away the whole jar.

If you’re tempted to try this DIY tonic but dread the smell you might encounter (it always does when food ferments, think yogurt), then follow these tips from Mama Linda to let you enjoy its benefits tonic without having to deal with the aspect of the very strong smell: the first is to use freshly poured fresh water, and the second is to use rice water after one or two days of fermentation, so that the smell is more subtle .


Reply to @chica20126 Fermented rice water is rich in antioxidants, provides UV protection, helps the skin barrier, soothes irritation/inflammation and reduces dark spots. Unfortunately, many avoid this amazing natural skin care product because of its smell, which comes from the fermentation process. I personally don’t mind. Also, when I use it on my skin, the smell disappears almost immediately. However, if the smell is what holds you back, here are 2 easy ways to enjoy it without a strong aroma: 1. Use fresh rice water right after it’s made, without fermentation. Keep it in the refrigerator and use it in a short time, about 2 weeks. 2. Lightly ferment it by leaving it at room temperature for 1 day. Keep it in the refrigerator and use it in a short time, about 2 weeks.
