You've probably heard your grandma telling you or your mom to use rice water to wash your face to prevent acne. While our beloved grannies do say a lot of mind-boggling things, this one makes a lot of sense. Rice water tightens the pores of the skin and helps control oil—and less oil means less acne!


Whether you're suffering from oily skin or you simply want a good makeup day without your face grease turning your beauty look into an abstract painting, we found the thing that we'd recommend even to our future grandchildren's children: Palladio's best-selling Rice Powder.

Ask any makeup junkie about Palladio and the first thing they'll do is rave about this beauty staple. It's not the makeup brand's bestseller for nothing! The Rice Powder has been around for quite some time now and has been well-loved for its noteworthy oil-absorbing properties. Not only will it keep your face shine-free, it also helps makeup last longer and leaves a gorgeous silky finish on the skin. Plus, its packaging is pretty cute, too! Each square container comes with a powder puff so you can easily toss it in your bag and powder your nose anytime of the day. It's available in three shades: Translucent, Natural, and Warm Beige. Apart from using it to set your makeup, you can use it on its own for a natural look, too.


But if you're looking for something a little more compact, you can go for Palladio's Rice Paper. It basically acts like blotting paper, except the tissues are made from natural rice. It has a matte side which is used to blot away shine and a powdered side which you can use for touch-ups. It's also available in three shades: Translucent, Natural, and Warm Beige.


The Palladio Rice Powder is priced at P450 while the Rice Paper is priced at P400. Both are available at Watsons stores and select SM Beauty stores nationwide.
