India — The summer season is here in full force, and that means your skin needs an extra dose of nourishment to keep it fresh and hydrated. A DIY hydrating mist is just what you need to ensure your skin remains supple, fresh and stays protected against acne, infection and tanning.

That’s why we have for you this jasmine and tea tree oil face mist that ticks all the right boxes! Especially because it’s a great home remedy for acne-prone skin.

Jasmine oil is an essential oil, derived from the white flowers of the common jasmine plant, and contains antibacterial properties. The antiseptic effect of the oil fights various bacteria, skin infections and has a cicatrizing effect that promotes wound healing through the formation of scar tissue.

Tea tree oil, on the other hand, is an essential oil that is extracted from the leaves of melaleuca alternifolia, a small tree native to Queensland and New South Wales, Australia. For centuries, the aborigines of Australia have used it to treat coughs, colds and heal their skin. Tea tree oil is widely regarded as a powerful tool against acne and can be used to heal wounds, provide relief from bug bites and reduce the severity of dermatitis-related symptoms, due to its anti-inflammatory properties.

Step 1: Steep the green tea bag in half a cup of boiled distilled water.

Step 2: Remove the bag after five minutes, and let the tea cool down.

Step 3: Once the tea has cooled down, pour tea tree oil, aloe vera, vitamin E oil and jasmine oil in the spray bottle along with the strained tea. Let the concoction settle for about five minutes.

Step 4: Peel and cut the cucumber, and toss it into a food processor. Strain the cucumber through a cheesecloth to extract the cucumber essence, and add it to the spray bottle.
