Not everyone is blessed with a plump pout. Fuller lips are desired by many and it is certainly not recommended or possible for everyone to get lip injections. Nature has its own beauty remedies and it certainly does have one for plumper and fuller lips- the wonder spice cinnamon! Cinnamon is known for its lip plumping properties since long. It helps your lips swell up and make them look plumper by softly irritating your skin. Here are some ways to use cinnamon for plumper and fuller lips:
CINNAMON LIP GEL
To make this lip gel, you need little Vaseline, couple of drops of cinnamon oil and Cotton swabs or lip brush.
Mix all the ingredients thoroughly. Make sure the oil is well mixed in Vaseline. Store the gel in a tight fitting jar and use it using a lip brush or cotton swab as and when required.
CINNAMON LIP PLUMPER LIP BALM
To make this lip balm you need 1 unflavoured lip balm, ½ teaspoon cinnamon oil and ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper powder.
Take the lip balm and untwist it completely. Break off the lip balm entirely and melt it on a double boiler. Once it’s melted, add the cinnamon oil and cayenne pepper powder to it. Stir until all the ingredients are mixed well. Untwist the lip balm all the way down and pour the lipbalm mixture into it. Let it set and cool down. Once the lip balm solidifies, you can use it to plum your lips.
CINNAMON LIP SCRUB
You need olive oil, cinnamon powder and brown sugar. Mix the ingredients in equal quantities and scrub your lips with it. Let it sit for few minutes and wash off.
HOW TO USE CINNAMON RECIPES:
- Wet your lips and gently scrub them using a wet washcloth to remove dead skin and any foreign matter. You may also use baking soda to scrub.
- Use the cinnamon recipes.
- Follow with a lipbalm (if using scrub or lip gel) for keeping the lips moisturized.
