Cinnamon is one of the most delicious spices found on the earth. It is not only used in baking but is also helpful in medicinal and beauty treatments.

Cinnamon helps in treating acne by increasing circulation to the affected area. The antibacterial properties of the spice also help eliminate the bacteria that cause acne.

All you need to do is use a simple cinnamon face mask. Mix three tablespoons of honey with a teaspoon of cinnamon. Whip the mixture into a thick paste and apply to your face. While the cinnamon fights the harmful bacteria, the honey reduces the redness and restores your skin’s moisture.

Leave this mask on for about 10 minutes (or until it starts to burn) and wash your face with cool water. Pat dry.

 

 

 

 

Cinnamon improves blood circulation and increases blood flow to the skin’s outer surface, causing minor plumping of the skin. You can use this property to get rid of the fine lines. Try mixing three drops of cinnamon essential oil with a couple of tablespoons of petroleum jelly and applying to your face –it can help reduce fine lines naturally &give a glow.

And what else? Cinnamon can help you get plump lips too! Adding a little Vaseline to your lips and patting a pinch of cinnamon on top can work wonders. Just rub the mixture on for a few seconds and allow it to sit for a minute. You might experience a tingling sensation. Add another coat of Vaseline, and you are good to go.
