Worried about acne and pimples?
It’s time to get rid of these tiny villains simply by applying some
easily available spices. We often use cinnamon in our cooking. But do
you know that for ages cinnamon has been used as an anti-aging and
anti-inflammatory ingredient? Yes, it helps remove acne and pimples and
leaves our skin glowing and youthful just within a few days.
Let’s see how we can utilize this spice for getting the desired effect:
1. Cinnamon-Banana Mask
We will need one pureed ripe banana, ½ tablespoon honey (raw), and 1
tablespoon powdered cinnamon. All the ingredients need to be mixed well
and applied to the skin as a mask. Wait for 15 minutes so that the paste
dries up completely then use warm water to wash it away. Just repeat
this process thrice a week and soon you will get a smooth, pimple-free
2. Cinnamon-Olive Oil Paste
We all know how olive oil is great for our skin and mixing it with
cinnamon betters the effect. Take 2 tablespoons of olive oil (extra
virgin) and mix it with ½ teaspoon cinnamon. Once mixed well, apply the
paste on your skin and let it stay for 10 minutes. When done, get some
warm water to wash it away. Repeat the same at least 3 times a week and
you will be surprised to find how quickly every pimple vanishes.
3. Cinnamon-Honey Mix
Honey is no doubt excellent for health whether consumed or applied
externally. Get 1 tablespoon powdered cinnamon and 3 tablespoons raw
honey and mix them into a smooth paste. Apply the paste on your skin.
Give it 10 minutes before washing off your face with warm water. Repeat
the procedure thrice every week for the best results.
We all deserve a glowing healthy face. But we cannot land up in the
parlor every day for a little pimple. So, try these simple home-made
mixes and see how this daily spice brightens up your face within a
fortnight. Enjoy the compliments because of that happy skin!
Just a word of caution. Before you carry on with the remedies make sure
that you are not allergic to cinnamon and/or the other ingredients. You
can always start with a skin patch test to check that. If you feel any
uneasiness, it’s better to avoid the procedure.
