Nuka, the rice bran : Unveiling the secret of Japansese women!

For soft, satiny skin, try nuka or rice bran. Nuka is traditionally used by Asian women to gently exfoliate their skin, brighten it and take it to the silk road.


Get some rice bran from a health food store. Put a few spoonfuls of the rice bran in a cotton gauze bag, fold over the corners and tie it up. Put the bag under very hot water, then squeeze it until it exudes a milky liquid. Gently rub the body in small circular motions, focusing on rough areas. Rinse with warm water. Dry yourself by dabbing with a cotton towel. Finally soothe your skin with a vegetable oil.
