DIY Detoxifying Mask: Maldives Detoxifying Treatment Recipe

A vacation to the luxe spa at the Six Senses Laamu in the Maldives may be a promotion (or 12) away, but that doesn’t mean you can’t DIY an exotic spa treatment in the comfort of your own home.

Using ingredients found on the islands of the Maldives (and in most supermarkets!), this detoxifying body mask exfoliates, detoxifies, hydrates, and brightens for soften, smoother and more even skin, naturally!

DIY Detoxifying Mask: Maldives Detoxifying Treatment

1 Tbsp nutmeg
1 Tbsp turmeric
1 Tbsp ginger
1 Tbsp rice powder
1 Tbsp cinnamon
3-5 Tbsp hot water

Combine the nutmeg, turmeric, ginger, rice powder and cinnamon. Slowly add hot water, stirring constantly, until a thick paste forms. Using a pastry brush, apply whenever desired on the body and let sit for 15 minutes or until skin begins to warm. Wash paste off with warm water.

Note: for sensitive skin, skip your face.
