DIY Sugar Scrub: Day Spa At Home

With social distancing measures in places, who says we can't indulge in some calming and relaxing wellness retreats at home? Banyan Tree Spa trainer, Supattra Suthiwan, shows you how to make your very own sugar scrub.

Before you start your at-home "spa day", let’s set the mood first. Prepare a few uplifting scented candles, tune into a playlist of ready-made relaxing music, and wrap yourself with comforting fluffy towels or bath robe to start your relaxing retreat. Lastly, let's prepare the sugar scrub before indulging in your luxury Banyan Tree Spa-like experience at home.

This natural sugar scrub recipe will leave you feeling rejuvenated and it helps to strip away the stressful buildup during this circuit breaker period.

What you’ll need:

  • 3 TBSP Honey
  • 3 TBSP Yoghurt
  • 3 TBSP Tamarind
  • White Sugar
  • Empty Container


  • Step 1:
    Add the honey into a clean empty container.
  • Step 2:
    Add the yoghurt and mix thoroughly with a spoon. Highly recommend to use plain or natural yoghurt.
  • Step 3:
    Add tamarind paste and mix thoroughly with a spoon.
    How to create the tamarind paste: To create the tamarind paste, simply mix dry tamarind and water until it forms a paste-like texture.
  • Step 4:
    Mix it all up into a smooth paste.

Once you're done making the body scrub. Simply, apply the paste onto your skin, add some sugar on top (as much as you desire), then rub it into your skin in circular motion. Lastly, when you’re satisfied and feeling refreshed, rinse off with water and remember to moisturize after.

This natural homemade exfoliants is suitable for all skin types and great for brightening up the dull skin, and removing dead skin cells, dirt and excess oil.

You can try this scrubbing method once per week, and gradually increase to 3 to 4 times per week. If you have sensitive skin, make sure to speak to your dermatologist first. 

Being cooped up at home can cause stress and anxiety, do remember to pamper yourself once in a while. We hope that you had fun experimenting this easy-to-make sugar scrub.

Stay safe, stay healthy. Together we can overcome.
