Alcohol for bathing
In Korea and Japan, alcohol was frequently used for bathing. Alcohol for bathing was made with rice, as the ingredients contained in rice shells are believed to be good for skin care as they contain protein, minerals, and other vitamins. The only difference between alcohols for bathing in Korea and Japan is that Korea ones were usually made with the rice shells crushed in the process, while Japanese ones were made after the rice was carved to remove the shells. This alcohol was very popular for women for its excellent effectiveness on skin care.
