The Honua Ritual
I've said it before and I’ll say it again -- skin loves routine! That's why the Honua Ritual is key to a happy and healthy complexion. Keep reading to learn more about the 5 steps you need to be following for a gorgeous hula glow.
Step 1 | Pa’akai Cleansing Cream
The Pa’akai Cleansing Cream combines Hawaiian Salt, Hibiscus, and Seaweed to refresh and reinvigorate the skin. This cream is safe to use on all skin types, as well as with your favorite facial cleansing brush.
Step 2 | Hawaiian Beauty Water
Gently exfoliate even the most sensitive skin with Honua’s Hawaiian Beauty Water. Packed with botanicals such as Papaya Enzymes, Hibiscus, and Kō (Hawaiian Sugar), this toner promotes tight pores and glowing skin by removing dead skin cells. Use 1 to 5 times a week, depending on your skin type, for best results.
Step 3 | Aloha Youth Serum
Achieve a youthful glow by adding the concentrated Aloha Youth Serum to your daily routine. This serum goes deep into the skin, leaving it dewy and nutrient-rich. Apply a bead of serum using the dropper top, and massage into you face and neck.
Step 4 | ‘Ōlena Beauty Oil
Reap the benefits of Noni, Turmeric, Kukui Nut and Kamani oils (A.K.A. the best super plants out there) in Honua’s ‘Ōlena Beauty Oil. This oil hunts down each and every skin problem from dry skin to rosacea, and even acne! Include this oil in both your morning and nighttime skincare routine.
Step 5 | Malu Protecting Day Cream
Did you know that some sunscreens can seriously damage the ocean’s coral reef? Choosing a reef-safe sun cream like Honua’s Malu Protecting Day Cream, is both reef-safe and utilizes non-nano zinc oxide for broad SPF protection. Shelter your skin from wrinkles, fine lines, and environmental pollutants by using Honua’s luxurious transparent cream, daily.
Bonus! Step 6 | ‘Aina and Moana Face Masks
Face masks are great for resetting the skin every now and then. The ‘Aina Invigorating Face Mask (pictured) utilizes Bamboo Charcoal and Ni’oi (Hawaiian Chili Peppers) to detoxify the skin of impurities and to stimulate blood flow. The Moana Rejuvenating Face Mask prevents premature aging with blue green algae found just off the coasts of Hawaii. Treat your skin with either mask one to two times a week for an improved beachy complexion.
Honua Beauty is dedicated to keeping Hawaiian culture alive, as well as protecting the vital sources of island ingredients. Honua supports independent local ingredient suppliers, Sustainable Coastlines (beach cleanup), and the Hawaiian Legacy Reforestation Initiative.
