Powerful Herb that Provides Your Skin with a Glowing Complexion

Cinnamon for a Glowing Complexion

Cinnamon adds a kick to cookies and hot drinks, but it’s also packed with antioxidants — substances that fight skin damage. “It has more antioxidant value than half a cup of blueberries,” says nutritionist Keri Glassman, the author of The O2 Diet. For an easy antioxidant boost, sprinkle half a teaspoon of cinnamon on your coffee grounds before brewing. To ensure you’re using the most potent spices, says Glassman, discard bottles that are more than two years old; also, store spices in a dark cupboard, because heat from the stove and sunlight will decrease their potency.

If you love cinnamon rolls and can’t help but sprinkle a dash of cinnamon onto your coffee, here is great news: cinnamon has some amazing health benefits and helps us get glowing skin, it even prevents hair loss.

What you probably didn’t know about this deliciously fragrant spice is that cinnamon has been used in medicine and cosmetology since ancient times. It is rich in antioxidants that are known to slow down aging processes in our body, it also contains numerous minerals and vitamins that make our skin and hair naturally beautiful:

  • Cinnamon is beneficial for oily or combination skin types. It helps to tighten skin pores and makes your face clear and smooth.
  • Cinnamon is good for our hair as well, it improves blood circulation in the scalp, strengthens hair bulbs and promotes hair growth.
