Do you want an alternative to those expensive cinnamon lip plumpers? All you have to do is go straight to the source…your spice rack. Whether you are looking to save money or go as natural as possible, you can benefit from using cinnamon in your beauty routine. We sure love frugal alternatives, don’t we?
Here are a few ways to use cinnamon to plump up your smoocher.
Stick: Wet a cinnamon stick and gently rub on your lips. The consistency of the stick will exfoliate your lips, as well. This method may not yield as good of a result as the next one.
Powder: Make a lip scrub by adding a few drops of honey or water to about a tablespoon of white sugar until it’s the consistency of wet sand. Add ½-1 tsp of ground cinnamon and mix. Gently apply to your lips with your fingers or a q-tip and rub in gentle circular motions.
Oil: I’ve seen people suggest using a drop of cinnamon oil on your lips. I’ve never done it myself. Just be aware that it may irritate your lips more than the above methods, as it is more concentrated.
