One of the best home remedies to remove facial shine and prevent it from forming through the day is to make a facial toner with rice water. Although it may seem strange, this cereal contains tocotrienols which are substances that help control the production of fat in the face and reduce excess oiliness.

The tocotrienols are released when rice goes into contact with water, so to prepare this homemade tonic you must add half a cup of rice to a cup of water and leave to soak for 20 minutes. After this time strain the resulting liquid and place it in a spray bottle. You only have to spray the rice water on your clean face before applying make up to feel its effects.
