It is that time of the year when you are likely to encounter many problems with your skin. Besides the loss of moisture and the onset of acne due to hormonal surge, you will also encounter the issue of pigmentation.
Pigmentation is a common problem during changes in weather. Your skin may be exposed to extreme heat or cold, both of which can make you look dull and blotchy. The reason behind this condition is sun damage or hormonal changes that cause clogged pores on your face, which leads to dark patches on your face, like freckles or age spots.
In order to treat pigmentation naturally without using harsh chemicals, it is essential for you to include ingredients like cinnamon powder facemasks in your beauty routine.
In fact, it is one of the major skin concerns during this change in weather because pigmentation makes your skin look dull and blotchy.

Pigmentation is caused by sun damage, hormonal changes or any other reason that can make your skin look dull and blotchy. You may also see dark spots, patches or even freckles on your face. According to doctors, this happens because of an increase in melanin production which results in the darkening of skin colour.
Not just women but men too suffer from pigmentation issues. Also, they are exposed more often than women are due to their outdoor work habits and lifestyle choices such as smoking or drinking alcohol etc. However, these days, with our busy lives, we do not have time for all these things so what do we do? We use home remedies like cinnamon powder facemasks where we mix honey with cinnamon powder (you can get organic Cinnamomum zeylanicum at most grocery stores)
