Combine cinnamon powder with the oil of your choice (olive, almond, or peppermint oil work great) and apply the mixture to your lips. Massage the ingredients into your lips for a few minutes and rinse it off. This will naturally plump and make your lips bigger!
Cinnamon can reduce fine lines and wrinkles
Similar to the lip plumping effect, cinnamon can also help to plump your skin through increased circulation and blood flow! When the skin is more plumped, fine lines and wrinkles are less noticeable. Apply ground cinnamon to your face with your favorite oil or petroleum jelly to reap the anti-aging benefits.
Cinnamon can treat and reduce acne breakouts
Cinnamon is a natural antibacterial which means that it’s incredibly effective when it comes to treating and preventing acne breakouts. Applying cinnamon topically with honey as a face mask is a great way to treat breakouts while nourishing and moisturizing your face at the same time. Consuming cinnamon also helps to take care of your body from the inside out. Cinnamon tea and cinnamon water are great ways to consume cinnamon daily!
