Dry lips can be so frustrating to deal with, and sometimes, it just feels impossible to achieve lasting hydration. Here at Hanalei, one of our favorite ingredients is kukui oil, which is a natural Hawaiian botanical that’s here to help your lips experience lasting moisture. We love using kukui oil in many of our products, especially those for lip moisture, so we’re here to share all of our hydration tips with you, so your lips can start feeling their absolute best.
What is Kukui Nut Oil?
Kukui Nut Oil is a natural Hawaiian botanical that’s used for moisture and hydration. It has been used traditionally for years by native Hawaiians, and can even help in treating burns. Because of its hydrating properties, we love to use it in all of our lip products. You’ll find this magically hydrating oil in our Lip Treatment, Lip Balms, and even our Sugar Lip Scrub.
What is the best moisture on the go?
If you’re looking for a moisturizer for dry lipst you can just throw in your purse or backpack, so you can get Island hydration wherever you are, you can go wrong with our Kukui Lip Balms. It comes in 5 Island flavors: Island Mint, Tropical Citrus, Lilikoi, Coconut Pear, and Vanilla. If you’re looking for a lip balm that also includes SPF, we now have an SPF 15 Lip Balm trio that comes with our Island Mint, Tropical Citrus, and Unscented Lip Balms, so you can gain the benefits of kukui oil while also protecting your lips from the sun.
What is the best way to get moisture overnight?
If you’re looking to treat your lips overnight, or even over a long period of time, try our Lip Treatment. For overnight treatments, use our clear color. This will allow you to wake up with soft and hydrated lips every morning. If you want to treat your lips during a long day, try one of our tinted Lip Treatments. These double as a lip gloss, and can add to your look, while helping your lips to feel super healthy.
What else can I do to help my lips?
One more fantastic product for dry lips you’re going to love is our Sugar Lip Scrub. This is an exfoliating scrub that combines Hawaiian Cane Sugar with Kukui Nut Oil to help you buff away dry and dead skin, while adding moisture at the same time!
