How can Hawaiian Kukui oil treat sunburnt skin?
Hawaiian Kukui oil has been used for centuries by islanders for a wide variety of purposes, but it’s best known for its ability to treat sunburnt skin.
Originating from the Kukui nut tree the oil is the product of pressing the nut’s flesh to create a rich essential oil, great as a nutritional supplement or an organic skincare option.
What are its benefits?
Kukui oil offers excellent relief for sunburn, as it is rich in lineolic acid, an omega fatty acid loved by skin.
Pregnant women often use it to reduce stretch marks and Hawaiian nationals frequently eschew the benefits of regular application on the legs, saying it helps to reduce or prevent cellulite from forming when massaged into the skin.
It contains a high concentration of vitamin E, A and C and essential fatty acids, meaning it naturally locks in moisture without clogging pores.
Kukui oils can be used to help calm and treat sunburn, as well as assisting in alleviating problems such as dry, chapped skin, eczema, psoriasis and blemishes.
How should you apply it?
Kukui nut oil is absorbed into the skin quickly and can keep it moisturised for a long period of time.
To apply, you’ll need to rub a little onto the skin, gently massaging it in circles help penetrate through damaged layers.
Kukui nut oil can offer immediate relief from sunburn, helping to calm the heat and should be applied as often as necessary until the symptoms disappear.
This is the same for any skin complaint, however it can also be used as a daily facial treatment, working in a similar way to a day or night crème.
By applying the oil, skin problems can be reduced, while also offering long-lasting hydration and an aromatic natural scent.
- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi Kianouche, Thank you for your message. I would recommend to mix pomegranate oil with Marula oil for what you are looking to treat. A few drops of antioxidant-rich Marula oil mixed with Pomegranate oil can boost efficacy and help restore your skin’s functions in perfect equilibrium. Long term use may visibly minimise pores, brighten the skin, protect it from the oxidative damage caused by pollution, tones down pigmentation and assists with scar tissue healing. Hope this helps :)
- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi I’ve bought some of your pomegranate oil, together with rosehip and marula oils. Which of the other two oils would be better to mix with pomegranate oil for mature skin with hyperpigmentation due to sun damage and sometimes prone to spots and milia when using rich moisturisers. Also, can I use pomegranate oil by itself or combined with either of the other two oils around my eyes

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Dolores, thank you for your message!Ashwagandha is an adaptogen so will adapt to your own bodies rhythm. It is a powerful way to regulate energy levels through the day so in some people may boost circulation and cell activity, which is why you may find yourself with insomnia. Everyone is unique and different, so will react to herbs and remedies differently. As you are using bio-identical hormones, I would advise you check with your GP, as there are often interferences with herbs. Perhaps you should try taking your Ashwagandha in the morning to regulate your bodies rhythm through the day.
