Maya Jama has a top-tier gig. Regularly jetting off to tropical locations via private plane, owning a wardrobe to die for and a role as the presenter of Love Island – she truly has it all. In order to combat her rising stress levels from her jam-packed itinerary, the star treated herself to a day of detox, and her outfit choice for the occasion was creative to say the least.

The 28-year-old could make anything look good, even a bin bag. The household item was crafted into a dress for the star, who shared her art school aesthetic with fans online. Yet Maya's outfit was not purely for aesthetics, in fact, not at all.

Research suggests that wearing a bin bag while in a sauna as Maya demonstrated helps with water loss. Sweat production helps the body to regulate water temperature, enabling a cooling process that is vital in warmer conditions.

According to, wearing a bin bag "short circuits part of your body's cooling process. The trash bag prevents the sweat from evaporating, signalling the body to keep producing sweat in the hopes of lowering your body temperature. In this manner, the trash bag causes weight loss from water loss."

Maya documented the unorthodox process via her Instagram Stories, snapping a selfie in the red-hot sauna. She wrote: "Sauna wrapped in a bin bag for last min detox why not."

To be fair, if a body like Maya's is achieved through the use of sweaty bin bags, we'd sign up for a session too. The ITV host is proud of her incredible figure, regularly showing off her hard-earned physique through a series of dazzling outfits.

From low-rise jeans to Y2K Gucci bikinis, crochet sets to Versace LBDs and so much more, the star has rocked it all. Luckily for us, Maya's magnificent wardrobe was once again on full display during her penultimate holiday, where she enjoyed a night in a casino with friends.

While living it up in Hong Kong with pals. Maya lit up the night in a pale pink knit co-ord that effortlessly fused feminine charm with party girl glamour.
