There are no specific foods to avoid after Botox. Moreso with fillers, where bruising is more likely, I advise avoiding things that thin the blood such as alcohol, aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E, ginseng, green tea & gingko.
Should I avoid particular foods before and after Botox? eg: cayenne pepper, cinnamon etc? If so, why?

You do not have to avoid any foods before or after Botox treatment, according to any studies. One thing to keep in mind is to minimize exposure to medicines that may increase bleeding or bruising prior to getting your Botox treatment (such as Aspirin, Ibuprofen, and even some vitamins may contain Ginseng).

Foods to avoid before Botox?
I don't tell my patients to avoid any foods prior to Botox. My patients enjoy their Botox results with minimal bruising and don't have to worry about any foods to avoid. What matters with Botox is injection technique. Find a great injector and listen to his or her advice.

With any healthy balanced diet you should be fine. Do avoid aspirin, Motrin or blood thinners,, Many herbal supplement's can have blood thinners (such as Ginko). When in doubt about a product or food check in with your PS.

There is no interaction with any foods. In general, there are supplements that can thin the blood slightly and those should be avoided for a few days. Aspirin shouldn't be taken for 10-14 days.
