THE RITUAL......STEP BY STEP
Pa'akai Cleansing Cream. Creamy and nourishing, yet highly effective, the Pa'akai power comes from Hawaiian sea salt, hibiscus and seaweed. Salt cleanses pores, fights bacteria and balances skin, hibiscus tones and seaweed is full of antioxidants and tissue regeneration properties. To use, dispense 2-3 pumps (or 4 if you like to splurge) on to clean fingertips and massage gently all over face. If you have a lot of stubborn makeup, add a few drops of 'Ōlena Oil to loosen it up. Rinse with lukewarm water.
Exfoliation is important.....but you don't need to scrub your face off for it to be effective. Enter Hawaiian Beauty Water, our go-to glow potion for revealing healthy, glowing skin. Papaya enzymes, willow bark, hibiscus and kō (Hawaiian sugar) work together to gently exfoliate skin, letting your underlying glow....show! To use, dispense ~2 pumps on a cotton (reusable rounds are great!) round. Swipe gently all over cleansed face and neck. No rinsing needing!
The entire Honua line is designed to infuse hydration in every step yet stress of our daily lives can suck hydration away. Our Aloha Youth Serum uses antioxidant-rich noni, kamani and kukui oils to promote elastin and collagen production. Bakuchiol, a plant-derived retinol alternative, evens skin tone by penetrating skin and reducing the appearance of spots. It also spurs skin to make collagen and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. We are in love with this little miracle worker. To use, dispense 3-4 drops onto clean, damp skin and massage gently, allowing the botanicals to work their magic.
'Ōlena Beauty Oil.....created by founder Kapua Browning to address a wide variety of skin issues, including first-aid for burns, cuts and scrapes! Unlike other oils, 'Ōlena is great for all skin types and penetrates the skin quickly. Full of antioxidants and fatty acids, 'Ōlena helps treat the root of aging, acne, dehydration, sun damage, psoriasis, eczema and many other issues your skin might manifest. Dark spots can lighten with regular use of Aloha Youth Serum and 'Ōlena Beauty Oil. To use, use 1-2 drops and spread evenly over skin, leaving a little extra in areas of dryness or sensitivity. Use more or less as needed.
More Honua Essentials
Newly introduced in 2020, Līhau Face Mist is a multi-tasking maven when it comes to beauty. Our organic sandalwood hydrosol sourced from our partner farm on the Big Island of Hawai'i is gently infused with essential oils of blue tansy, neroli and vetiver creating an uplifting, sensual and ethereal scent. Līhau needs some solid shakes because the essential oil blend likes to stick together near the top of the bottle. Just shake well and use 1-2x per day.
Wearing sun protection during the day is one of the top tips every dermatologist has for achieving more youthful skin. So protect the skin you are investing in and obsessing over. Our Malu Protecting Day Cream has SPF30 and is nourishing and smells like...Hawaii! Apply daily and every 2 hours if you are in the sun. More directions can be found on the box.
This mask draws ingredients from our precious ocean ("moana" in Hawaiian), such as limu ko’a or Hawaiian spirulina, a blue green algae that is high in antioxidants and is known to boost cell regeneration to help with premature aging. Moana contains laukahi, a potent skin healing plant used for centuries in traditional medicine. This mask will revive and nourish your thirsty skin. Use 1-2x weekly after cleansing with the Pa'akai Cleansing Cream. Massage a dime-nickel size amount over entire face and let it work its magic for 10-15 minutes or even longer if you choose. Rinse or towel off with cool water. Follow with Hawaiian Beauty Water or go directly to Aloha Youth Serum to lock in hydration.
Āina is a detoxifying mask that utilizes potent plant-derived ingredients to give any skin type a revitalized glow. Bamboo charcoal draws out impurities from the skin while the ni’oi (Hawaiian chili pepper) aids in detoxification and stimulation of blood flow. Use 1-2x weekly after cleansing with the Pa'akai Cleansing Cream. Massage a dime-nickel size amount over entire face and let it work its magic for 10-15 minutes. A slight tingling sensation is typical but will dissipate after a few minutes. Rinse or towel off with cool water. Follow with Hawaiian Beauty Water or go directly to Aloha Youth Serum to lock in hydration.
