Kiss that bikini line goodbye with the help of the all-natural Therapy Shave Gel from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE.

That red rash that occurs doesn’t always happen right after shaving. Razor burn can occur up to four days after shaving, just as the hair on your legs or on your face starts to grow back.

Psuedofoliculitis barbae, or razor bumps, are the reaction that you get when there is an inflammation in the skin follicle. If left alone, razor bumps can actually cause scaring. The persistent problem is a direct result from shaving, causing pustules that look much like acne, to develop after shaving too close. Coarse, curly hairs will begin to grow almost immediately, but when you use the Therapy Shave Gel from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE every time you shave, you may never have to deal with PFB again.

Quite possibly the most painful problem that can occur when you are shaving is ingrown hairs. These little gems are caused when the broken end of a whisker or hair grows sideways and ends up curling itself back underneath your skin. Resist the urge to grab the tweezers and apply a hot washcloth, which can help calm the irritation. Topical treatments, such as the Herbal Healing Gel from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE can work wonders to help remove and sooth an ingrown hair irritation.

Acne is not much fun for anyone, but if you have to shave and you have patches of acne on your skin, it can be extremely painful. Try using the Therapy Shave Gel from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE and follow up with Herbal Healing Gel.

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.

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.

Soaps and some cleansers would like you to believe that they are completely safe for your skin, but the bottom line is, most facial cleansers contain an ingredient called sodium lauryl sulfate that is notorious for sucking moisture from your skin. Even if the cleanser that you have been using is free from sodium lauryl sulfate, it may not be fragrance free. If you have dry skin, it will only get worse if you use cleansers that contain perfumes and other scents.

If you have been following our blog, you will know that we are going to spend the first month of spring talking about feeding your skin on the inside.

Water is imperative if you want your skin to have a smooth, healthy glow. Using all natural skincare products from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE is a good way to start, but if you are not nourishing your skin properly, you could be dehydrating your skin.

098754hgihdp8h

Your body needs water as it provides essential nutrients to your skin. Every day you lose large amounts of water through breathing, exercise, elimination, aging, high altitude and skin evaporation. If your water intake isn’t keeping up with your output, dehydration will set in.

908457yhpih0rt8hwe0

When you drink water, it helps to balance the fluids in your body. Sixty percent of your body is composed of water. Absorption, digestion, nutrient transport, circulation and body temperature all need water in order to function properly. If your body is not getting enough fluids your brain triggers its thirst mechanism giving you clues that you are on the verge of dehydration.

Drinking water can also help you lose weight as it makes you feel full. Although it is not a magic bullet, water will help your daily calorie intake. Try to consumer water laden vegetables and fruit, beans and soups that are broth-based.

When you exercise, your body needs water to replace fluids that are lost when you sweat. It is vital that you maintain a balance of electrolytes and fluids in order to help with muscle fatigue.

Water provides a protective barrier for your skin helping to prevent fluid loss, but without a healthy skin care routine, hydrating with water will not make those fine lines and wrinkles disappear. The all-natural skin care line from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE will help your skin lock in the moisture.

Alcohol Can Damage your Skin

SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE understands how important a good skin care regimen is, but feeding your skin from the inside is just as important is feeding it on the outside.

Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing some beauty secrets that will help keep your skin looking young, healthy, smooth, and supple. Of course, that means the SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE all natural family skincare line on the outside, but we want to concentrate on feeding your skin from the inside as well.

cocktails_niuaheoiuh

Everyone likes a cocktail now and again, but what does it really do to your skin? Is a shot of tequila worse than a beer or vise versa?

According to Dr. David Colber, founder of the NY Dermatology Group, alcohol is a hepatotoxin. Alcohol also contains congeners. These substances are produced during fermentation. Those same congeners cause hangovers.

gin_southwepuih

Alcohol also dehydrates your skin. This means when you wake up in the morning your skin will not be as fresh or as plump as it normally is.

Alcohol isn’t the only thing that can affect your skin. The mixers that you add to clear shots of tequila, gin, and vodka can be loaded with salt or sugar. The best alcohol to consume would be clear shots like gin, rum, or vodka, but it is important to remember that people tend to drink more when they are imbibing with shots.

dark_cocktailsnpiuh0i

Next on the list would be dark shots of tequila, rum, or whiskey as there are fewer additives, however, the difference between dark and light alcohol is the extra fermentation that goes into dark alcohol. The more congeners in your drink, the faster your skin will age.

Sweet mixed drinks can lead to systemic inflammation. That along with the extra carbs in drinks like Mojitos and Pina Coloda’s can cause cell damage, which will age your skin. The less sugar you consume in your alcoholic drinks the better. Avoid drinks mixed with energy drinks, soda, or orange juice. Remember, sugar can also cause acne as it spikes your levels of insulin. Sugar hangovers mixed with a regular hangover will result in bloodshot eyes and sallow looking skin.

glasses_ofbeer

Beer and wine can also affect your skin. Beer contains salt, which could give you thirsty skin and swollen eyes. It’s your body’s way of telling you that you need to drink water to rid your body of the salt.

redwine_npoiuhpoih

 

Red wine has benefits, and can actually counteract the aging process as it supports the health of your skin. White wine on the other hand contains both salt and sugar leading to bloating and swollen skin. Unfortunately, white wine does not have the same health benefits that red wine does.

Start a New Tradition with Southwest Sunshine

lwb 40i

Traditions are meant to be held on to, but unfortunately, during the holidays it is all too easy to forget where they came from or why they are even celebrated in the first place.

Every year people all over the globe put up a Christmas tree to celebrate the joy of the holiday season. The Christmas tree custom began in Germany tracing back to the 15th century. Devout Christians would bring decorated beautiful evergreen trees inside to share with their families. The St. George’s Church in Selestats began the tradition in 1521. The Christmas tree didn’t become popular elsewhere until the middle of the 19th century.

Early Christmas tree decorations were quite different than they are today. Christmas trees were decorated with apples, oranges and assorted nuts making them taste as good as they looked.

The Encyclopedia Britannica writes, “”The use of evergreen trees, wreaths, and garlands to symbolize eternal life was a custom of the ancient Egyptians, Chinese, and Hebrews. Tree worship was common among the pagan Europeans and survived their conversion to Christianity in the Scandinavian customs of decorating the house and barn with evergreens at the New Year to scare away the devil and of setting up a tree for the birds during Christmastime.”

In Great Britain, the Druids used evergreens to perform sacred winter solstice rituals. These wood priests also used mistletoe and holly. These were symbols of eternal life. Evergreen branches were placed over the doorways to ward off evil spirits.

During the Middle Ages, the Scandinavians and the Germans would place evergreens just outside the door or inside to show hope of a fruitful spring. Today’s modern Christmas trees and other decor come from these earlier traditions.

According to legend, Martin Luther started the tree decorating tradition on Christmas Eve around 1500. As he walked through the woods that were covered in snow, he was awestruck at the beauty of a small group of evergreens. The branches lightly shimmering under the light of the moon made him so excited that when he returned to his home he set up his own fir tree in order to share his story with his family. He decorated his, “Christmas tree,” with candles, which he lit in honor of Christ’s birth.

The Spirit of Christmas

Puritan Christmas BanChristmas has not always been a welcome tradition in the United States. In fact, the Puritans called the holiday un-Christian and upon arrival to the New World back in 1620, actually worked on December 25th.

Even after Puritanism began to wane, an Episcopal bishop in 1827 told his congregation that the devil had actually stolen Christmas by converting it into a day that was filled with shooting, swearing and worldly festivities. All throughout the 1800’s, Baptist, Presbyterian and Methodist churches closed their doors on December 25 because they did not accept Christmas Day as holy. In fact, only 18 states recognized Christmas during the Civil War.

Christmas began to gain popularity after Clement Clarke Moore wrote, “Visit from St. Nicholas.” However, it was the weekly drawings by Thomas Nast Harper that really swayed the religious leaders who began to think that maybe it wasn’t so bad after all. The drawings featured a white-bearded gentleman called Santa who gave out gifts to children.

In 1881, storefronts began to decorate their windows with Christmas cards, colorful ornaments and brightly wrapped gifts, and in 1888 JP Robert of Stratford in West Ham, unveiled the very first, “Santa’s Grotto,” with the bearded gentleman himself greeting children in order to fulfill their Christmas wish lists. By the late 1890’s it was a tradition to sit on Santa’s knee with storeowners all over the United States creating their own Santa’s Village.

The larger department stores adopted Christmas during the 1920’s by sponsoring the Christmas Shopping Season kicking off the day after Thanksgiving. However, all was not well with sermons all over the country calling Christmas a huge commercial racket.
