Returning to grandma’s traditional feature rice beauty remedies.
As a child, I would watch my grandma apply generous amounts of white paste powder on her face every morning and evening as part of her daily beauty regime. I learnt that this was called Bedak Sejuk (Cold Powder) – a natural Asian beauty product traditionally made from fermented rice and shaped into tiny white teardrop-shaped beads.
Growing up, I helped my grandma tediously make the dainty white rice powder beads and this powder was regularly used in my household to keep our skin cool and prevent acne outbreaks in the humid and tropical climate of Malaysia.
With the rise of Western and Korean beauty products, traditional beauty regimes that pay homage to our heritage and culture are slowly being forgotten. I became more aware of the harmful chemicals found in most of the skincare and beauty products I was using, which posed a threat not only to my health, but the environment and the planet’s natural eco-system. It became my mission to look for the best natural skincare products available in the market. I tried many natural beauty products, however found them either too expensive, lacked effectiveness or weren’t entirely ‘natural’. This led me back to my roots, to bring back my grandma’s beauty secrets.
