This luxurious, coconut-scented exfoliant for face and body is simply divine. For centuries, Asian cultures have used rice in skincare formulations to encourage clear, luminous, and porcelain skin.
The rice gently exfoliates while the penetrating moisture from the coconut cream brings vitamins and minerals to the deeper dermal layers of your skin, helping to strengthen tissues while fighting fine lines, wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation, and dull, dry skin.
Use this gorgeous head-to-toe skin treatment weekly to enhance your skin’s natural luminosity.

How To Store
This mask is best used fresh. Store any leftovers in a sealed container and use within 1–2 days.
How To Use
For best results, take a quick shower or use after a long soak in the tub.
The warmth of the shower will open your pores and the moisture on your skin will provide a conduit for the mask to start working faster and more effectively.
Towel dry and apply to skin in small, upward motions. Start with your body and finish with your face.
Once you are covered from head to toe, massage the scrub in small circular motions, starting with the legs and arms, making your way up to the torso, ending at your heart.
Then move to your face, avoiding the eye area. Massage your face with light pressure, using circular motions.
Allow to set on your body for up to 30 minutes and up to 15 minutes on your face. To rinse, get in the shower and rinse well.
For maximum benefit, do not use soap to wash off the residual oils.
Towel dry and mist your face with Old-Fashioned Rosewater (see INFUSIONS Part) to close the pores.
