“‘Break the cinnamon in half.’
The cinnamon stick was light, curled around itself like a brittle roll of papyrus. Not a stick at all, Lillian remembered as she look closer, but bark, the meeting place between inside and out. It crackled as she broke it, releasing a spiciness, part heat, part sweet, that pricked her eyes and nose, and made her tongue tingle without even tasting it.” -Erica Bauermeister
Reminiscent of family and home, the scent of cinnamon-apple pie, cinnamon buns, cinnamon flavored anything will transport your senses straight back to your childhood! Yet, not only does cinnamon spice up your food, it can also spice up your skincare regime: its properties make Cinnamon a perfect ingredient for diy treatments to fight blackheads and acne, leaving skin smoother.
The Cinnamon is an evergreen tree of the Lauraceae family, native of Sri Lanka, diffused in Europe and Asia. The spice is not obtained from the seed or from the fruit of the plant, but from the stem and twigs. Once treated, they look like a small, nut-colored particle. It is a spice with a millennial history, reported in the Bible, in the book of Exodus, used for embalming by the ancient Egyptians and cited abundantly in the Greek and Latin world, where it was said that Cinnamon was stored in chests of ivory like a precious object.
Cinnamon and its use for the skin has a long tradition in the field of natural medicine. Cinnamon possesses a high content of antioxidants, which fight premature aging allowing you to maintain younger, more toned skin.
Kill-Your-Pimples Cinnamon Mask
Cinnamon helps fight acne due to its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Create this DIY anti-pimple mask by mixing 1 tablespoon of cinnamon powder with 3 teaspoons of honey, until you get a uniform paste to be applied on your face. After 20-30 minutes, rinse with warm water. Thanks to the honey and cinnamon, you will eliminate the bacteria present in the dilated pores, reduce the shiny effect of the skin and the excess of fats, and treat the inflamed areas of your face to obtain a healthier and more tonic skin.
Destroy-Your-Blackheads Cinnamon Mask
To eliminate annoying blackheads, you can try a natural, purifying cinnamon mask together with a regular and delicate facial cleansing performed using a classic steam method. To prepare your mask, put 3 tablespoons of buckwheat flour, 2 teaspoons of cinnamon and 100 grams of soft prunes (after having pitted and chopped) in a large mixing bowl. Mix the ingredients and gradually add 2 tablespoons of organic white yogurt and 1 tablespoon of honey. Then, add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, and stir until you get a thick, even cream, to be applied directly on your face. Leave on for 10 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.
Cinnamon and Banana Anti-aging Mask
As we age, our skin tends to lose its brightness little by little, due to the appearance of spots or a lack of elasticity. One way to prevent premature aging and provide luminosity to your face is to prepare a cinnamon and banana mask.
To make this mask quickly, put 1 small banana, a tablespoon of cinnamon, 1 tablespoon of yogurt and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice in a blender, and blend everything until you get a smooth cream. Apply this mask in the morning, when you have clean skin. Leave on for 20 minutes and then rinse with warm water. You will be amazed by smoother, brighter skin!
