'Aina - Invigorating Face Mask
'Āina... For the land lovers
'ĀINA = DETOXIFYING. STIMULATING. NOURISHING.
Inspired by powerful ingredients grown throughout the Hawaiian islands, 'Āina draws its name from the land ('Āina means "land" in the Hawaiian language).
'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. While this mask is deeply cleansing, it does not leave skin feeling dry like most charcoal masks as it also feeds the skin with kalo (Hawaiian taro root). This plant is filled with skin loving phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals, such as beta-carotene, anti-aging vitamins A and C, and skin repairing manganese. 'Ōlena (turmeric) brightens while tamanu oil brings balance and hydration to this active mask.
Directions: 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. For more information on our entire ritual, visit our post: The Honua Ritual

Step 1: Apply 1-2 pumps of our Pa'akai Cleansing Cream in your hand and lomi (massage) on to your face, add water to emulsify and rinse clean.
Step 2: Apply 1-2 pumps of our Hawaiian Beauty Water on a cotton round and gently wipe across entire face and décolleté. This process not only tones, hydrates, but helps to remove dead skin to leave skin glowing.
Step 3: Apply a pea size amount of our ALOHA Youth Serum to your hand and gently lomi onto the face and décolleté. Let it penetrate while thinking beautiful thoughts before moving on to the next step.

FRESH-BLENDED HAWAIIAN CREATIONS
Every single Honua creation draws its inspiration from Hawaii's botanicals, culture and the traditional Hawaiian healing art of Lā'au Lapa'au. Founder Kapua Browning created the formulas for many of our products in her apothecary facial studio on the island of Oahu, years before bottling them to share with the world.
Each of our products are exquisitely crafted using only the highest quality ingredients, many of which are sourced from local farms in Hawaii. Sharing the love between many farms rather than 1-2 large ones allows time for replenishment so that we never deplete our resources. We also believe in supporting sustainable farmers as their regenerative farm practices will allow our beautiful plants to continue to thrive for years to come.
All Honua products are made fresh very shortly after creation. We recommend using them within 12 months of opening. Please store in a cool, dark place to preserve its longevity! While we Hawaiians LOVE the sun, our Honua creations do not.
