How To Get Rid Of Pimples With Cinnamon
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 face.
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.
