Every time a celebrity spills her skin-care secrets these days, the regimen almost always has some major inflammation-fighting power, whether it’s via the topical route—as with Kate Bosworth’s de-puffing turmeric ice cubes (a genius skin hack for getting red carpet-ready)—or an inside-out beauty regimen like Alicia Keys’ dairy-free diet.

But you don’t need to have a Hollywood nutritionist or aesthetician on speed dial to get a paparazzi-ready glow. Celebrity facialist Cecilia Wong says it’s possible to get serious results with a four-ingredient mask you can make at home.

“This recipe came from a time when a celebrity client had a red carpet event and needed to reduce inflammation at home, stat.”

“This recipe came from a time when a celebrity client had a red carpet event and needed to reduce inflammation at home, stat,” says Wong, founder of Cecilia Wong Skincare who counts Katie Holmes and Zac Posen among her famous regulars. “The best part of this mask is that it works its magic in just 10 minutes.”

So what makes this DIY beauty treatment so potent? The one-two combo of detoxifying power players and superfood turmeric. “My Miracle Mask is a fast-acting, completely natural treatment for the skin,” says Wong. “It harnesses the powers of charcoal, green clay, turmeric, and ginger to purify pores, reduce inflammation, boost circulation, and clarify the complexion.”

So, all you need for that rejuvenated glow are the go-to spices in your kitchen and some detoxifying dirt—voilà.

Keep reading for Wong’s celeb-approved at-home face mask recipe.
