Glowing skin this holiday season!

Christmas is just around the corner, and so I am sharing with you guys my best kept secret for an instantly glowing skin!

A good face scrub is really important to get rid of the dead skin and blackheads. I love adding Cinnamon in my face scrub because it increases blood flow and boosts collagen production. Cinnamon is also a great anti-oxidant and helps reduce acne. So here’s my cinnamon scrub for glowing skin in winters.

What you’ll need

  • 1 tablespoon oats
  • 1/4 tablespoon cinnamon powder
  • 1 tablespoon Olive oil

Easy Winter DIY skincare

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and make a smooth paste. Apply this scrub on the face with your fingers and massage in circular motions. And then wash off with water.

Skincare tips for winter

P.S. Cinnamon may cause a tingling feeling when applied but that’s normal. But if the tingling is bothering you too much just wash off the scrub with water.

Follow this with your fav moisturizer and you are all good to go!

Hope you loved this super easy face scrub. Let me know in comments below ❤️
