Can Cinnamon Make Your Lips Look Plump?

Yes. It’s because cinnamon contains cassia oil, which has many benefits. It is a calming agent and does not harm your skin when used topically. However, it irritates your mucus membrane when applied to the lips. As a result, the blood circulation to your lips increases, giving you that coveted bee-stung pout.

And that’s the reason cinnamon is the cheapest, safest, and natural way to achieve a look that usually costs a bomb (we are talking about those expensive plumpers and cosmetic processes).

Now, without much ado, let’s look at the different ways of using cinnamon to plump up your lips. Before we start, a word of caution. After applying the cinnamon lip plumper, you will experience mild irritation on your lips. That’s normal. In fact, if there is no irritation, add some more cinnamon. Let’s proceed to the hacks.

Tips And Precautions When Using Cinnamon Lip Plumper

  • Always do a patch test before using cinnamon oil. It can sting a lot if applied in higher quantities. Adjust the quantity of cinnamon powder or oil depending on the sensitivity of your skin. Gradually add the cinnamon oil drops.
  • Before you apply cinnamon on your lips, exfoliate them with salt or sugar (not required if you are using them in your plumper). This helps in removing impurities and dead skin cells.
  • Never use cinnamon or any other spice on chapped lips. This will cause a burning sensation and is extremely painful.
  • Never rub cinnamon too much on your lips. Rub it for a while and leave it. Otherwise, it will irritate the skin too much.

No! Nothing can permanently alter your lips (unless you are going for a cosmetic procedure). The effect of these cinnamon lip plumpers lasts only a few hours.

Can it be reapplied throughout the day?

Yes, you can reapply it as required.

Can it be left on overnight for best results?

Don’t do this. Leaving it on for an extended period will not work as the plumping effect happens just after you apply it. Leaving it for longer will increase the risk of ingesting the plumper.
