Self care is made even easier with these three at-home spa treatments straight from resort spas in Mexico.
Coffee & Cinnamon-Infused Anti-Cellulite Body Scrub
From Muluk Spa at Hotel Xcaret
This scrub is perfect for exfoliating and eliminating toxins. You’ll need:
- 50 g of ground coffee (tip: recycle leftover coffee from morning brew)
- 50 g of brown sugar
- 15 g of powdered cinnamon
- 20 g of coconut oil
Directions: Mix all four ingredients together. With wet skin, apply the mixture to your body area of choice in circular motions from bottom to top. Let the scrub rest for 10-15 minutes before rinsing. Post shower, apply a moisturizing cream to the same areas.
From Kinan Spa at Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa
A creamy, soothing mask for ultimate relaxation. You’ll need:
- 1/2 avocado
- 20 ml honey
- small bowl
Directions: Remove the pulp from the avocado and pour the honey into the bowl. Stir well until you get a paste. Wash your face. Apply the mixture and let it rest for 10 minutes. Remove the paste with abundant water. Apply the face cream you use regularly.
Rice Facial Mask
From Gem Spa at Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun
Rice acts as an anti-aging agent as it lightens the skin, removes sun spots, firms and nourishes the skin. You’ll need:
- raw rice
Directions: Blend raw rice (do not cook) until it becomes a powdered texture. Mix with water until you get a clayish texture. Apply to face and let sit for 15 to 20 min and rinse afterward.
