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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Your Dry Skin Could Be a Health Risk


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.


SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE advises that you gently cleanse and exfoliate your skin with the all-natural family skin care line that is non-abrasive and loaded with soothing herbs such as Arnica, Rosemary, Aloe Vera, and Chamomile Flowers. The gentle products from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE will never strip the moisture from your skin, but will get rid of the outer layers of dry skin.

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.

Start a New Tradition with Southwest Sunshine

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.


This Christmas celebrate the older traditions or create some new ones with the help of SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE.

Soap Is More Harmful Than You Think


If you are cleansing your face with soap and water because you want to avoid harsh chemicals, you could be doing more damage to your skin than you think. Using a natural Herbal Facial Cleanser will keep your skin looking younger and healthier. Even soaps advertised as, “Natural,” can irritate and dry your skin, which could lead to itchiness and even eczema. Research shows that soap used on infants can influence the bacterial flora causing an imbalance of pH.

Soap will wash away the natural protective barrier in your skin. Sure, it may wash away the grime and dirt, but it will also wipe out the natural oil barrier right along with it. That squeaky-clean feeling that you get from soap is your body screaming for the natural oils that are being stripped away.

Your skin has acid mantle barriers or fatty acids that protect your skin from bacteria and infections. Those fatty acids naturally moisturize your skin. If you use soap, your skin will eventually become red, inflamed, and dry.

Using soap can also interfere with Vitamin D absorption. By washing away the natural acid barrier in your skin with soap, you are also washing away the Vitamin D synthesized in and on your skin.

Soap up on a regular basis and you will be getting rid of bacteria, but you will also be washing away essential bacteria that is good for your skin. Because soap is an anti-bacterial and anti-microbial, it destroys all bacteria, not just the bad stuff. Healthy bacteria on your skin plays a vital role in overall health.

It is important to cleanse your face every day, but skip the soap and water and opt for a natural cleanser like the Herbal Facial Cleanser from Southwest Sunshine. Enhanced with Saponins, this creamy good for your skin Herbal Facial Cleanser will disinfect getting deep into your pores without disrupting your delicate pH balance.
