In 1868, Jarvis started Mother’s Friendship Day, which helped mother’s gather together with both Confederate and Union soldiers for reconciliation.

Is your Makeup Aging you?

Southwest Sunshine

If you have been looking in the mirror and don’t like what you see, it could have something to do with your makeup. Using an all-natural skin care line can help make you look and feel younger, but so can taking a closer look at the makeup that you use.

Southwest Sunshine

According to SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE, there are some clever tricks that you can use to help you look younger.

Use a soft foundation and never overload on concealer. Heavier makeup will accentuate your wrinkles while over exaggerating the lines.

Southwest Sunshine

Makeup will not cover wrinkles and will only draw them out. Instead of heavy foundations, try a primer first and follow it up with a sheer or lightweight foundation. Instead of trying to hide your lines and wrinkles, work with them by viewing your face as a whole.

Southwest Sunshine

Focus on your eyes and play down the dark circles. Use the SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE eye and lip cream and you will notice a difference in as little as four weeks. It can be difficult to hide those dark circles, but they can be minimized with a natural looking concealer that is lighter than your skin tone. Lighter gives more projection while darker will make your eyes look recessed. Try using an eye shadow base or primer first in order to smooth out the skin on your eyelids.

Southwest Sunshine

If you have puffy eyes or bags, never use concealer as it will only accentuate the bags. Use a good moisturizer from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE and skip the concealer until your eyes have returned to normal.

You can minimize your flaws using a light concealer to hide sun and age spots. Add a bronzer to give you a sun kissed and more youthful appearance. All you have to do is sweep the bronzer at the top of your forehead and across the cheekbones. You can also use it under your chin to sculpt your face.

Southwest Sunshine

Add gloss to your SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE Longest Lasting Lipsticks to fill in crevices and cracks. Lip-gloss can also give the illusion of plumper lips adding more definition.

Of course, even the best makeup tips will not work unless you start with a good skin care regimen such as SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE. Order your all-natural skin care system today and start looking younger with makeup.

You Don’t Have to Live with Puffy Eyes

Puffy eyes not only make you look tired, but can also age you. Thankfully, SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE has some tips that may help your puffy eyes.

If you add salt to nearly every meal, it could be responsible for your puffy eyes. Water will make its way from just about any part of your body that is lacking in sodium traveling to those parts that have the most. Your eyes are the perfect example, especially if your dinner was over loaded with salt. A salty meal before you go to bed will always give you puffy eyes in the morning.

If you have allergies, you are probably dealing with puffy eyes as well. Allergy season and puffy, water eyes nearly always go together. However, there are medications available over the counter that can help with your puffy eyes and runny nose.

Get yourself a neti pot. Much like a tiny little teapot, it works by pouring salt water in your nostril while it drains out of the opposite nostril. Although it might sound rather strange, it does help flush out extra moisture that may be causing your puffy eyes.

The way you sleep could have something to do with your puffy eyes. Try switching from your stomach, as fluid can collect causing baggy eyes. Try sleeping on your back and add another pillow.

Never wear your makeup to bed. Cleanse with an all-natural skin care product from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE to avoid watery, red, and puffy eyes.

Cut out the alcohol at night. An occasional glass of wine won’t do you any harm, but do not overdo it. Alcohol will pull out the water in your skin weakening the area around your eyes. If you do over indulge, make sure that you drink plenty of water before retiring and use an all natural eye cream and moisturizer from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE.

You may slather on the sunscreen, but if you aren’t using it to protect your face, you may have puffy eyes 24/7. Too much sunshine can make your eyes puffy and wrinkle the skin around them. Wear sunglasses, use sunscreen, and don’t forget a hat.

Smoking is one of the biggest culprits when it comes to puffy eyes as it dries and weakens your skin causing wrinkled, puffy, and droopy eyes. Kick the habit and your skin will thank you for it.

Try a good all natural eye cream from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE that can help reduce eye puffiness. Not only is the lip and eye cream loaded with herbs that really do work, but it can also help with dark circles and puffy eyes.

Thanks to the all-natural line of organic skin care products from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE, you don’t have to deal with puffy eyes. Order your lip and eye cream or an entire skin care system online today.

Now that Mother Nature has decided to cooperate and the weather is warming up, it is time to shed that dry skin that has accumulated over winter. Dry skin doesn’t go away by itself, and unless you are using an all-natural family skin care line such as SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE, your dry skin could lead to other skin conditions.

Most people are not as concerned about dry skin as they are about acne or cellulite, but the bottom line is dry skin could cause dullness, red patches and flaking as it will intensify the fine lines on your forehead and the rest of your face making you look older than you actually are.

Esthetics aside, dry skin can also pose health risks. According to Dr. Francesca J. Fusco, a Women’s health advisor in New York, dry skin can cause invisible cracks in your skin that could invite dangerous bacteria into other parts of your body. If your dry skin is left untreated, that bacteria could result in a deadly staph infection.
