Skin Care for Sun Allergies

skin care

Skin care is important all year round, but especially during the summer as some people are more susceptible to the sun’s rays than you think.

SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE explains that some people are actually allergic to the sun. People who do have an allergy to the sun will develop an annoying itchy rash that is red and bumpy on the arms and the chest.

Below are some of the more common sun allergies:

 

Photodermatoses

One of the most common sun allergies is known as photodermatoses. You can get relief from photodermatoses if you apply the HEALING HERBAL GEL from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE. In fact, the HERBAL HEALING GEL should be a skin care staple in your household.

Polymorphous

Known as PMLE, polymorphous is another skin allergy that usually occurs in women who are aged between 20 and 40. It’s called Polymorphous because the bumpy pink or red rash looks different on different people. Polymorphous will usually appear on the legs, chest or arms. The face is rarely affected.

PMLE usually occurs in late spring or summer, with several hours of exposure to the sun after a long winter of no sun exposure. Although it’s not unsightly, it does burn or itch. After the first episode, PMLE will reappear every year. If you suffer from a skin allergy, include the HEALING HERBAL GEL from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE in your skin care regime as it may relieve some of the itchiness.

Solar Urticaria

If you suddenly break out in hives after spending a few minutes in the sun, you could have solar urticaria. Similar to PMLE your face isn’t usually affected. Once you are in the sun it will tend to disappear as quickly as it appeared and will rarely last for more than 24 hours.

Medications

Acne suffers can get red and burning skin if taking doxycycline. Referred to as drug-induced photosensitivity, several medications can cause this type of rash. The rash can affect any part of the body, including the face. If you suffer from acne, you may find relief in the all-natural skin care line from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE.

Fourth of July Independence from Great Britain

Fourth of July

The Fourth of July is as American as SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE, and if you are one of the families all across the United States that celebrates the birth of America, you may be interested in some little know facts about American Independence Day.

American Independence is born

When the Revolutionary war first started in April of 1775, very few colonists liked the idea of breaking away from Great Britain completely. Those who were in favor were considered radical, even by today’s standards. In the middle of 1776, more colonists started jumping on the bandwagon to independence because of hostility against the motherland.

Fourth of July

The motion to call for the independence of the colonies was introduced by delegate Richard Henry Lee on June 7. After a heated debate, Congress who appointed a committee with five members postponed the vote on the resolution. Members John Adams of Massachusetts, Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania, Thomas Jefferson of Virginia, Robert R. Livingston of New York, and Roger Sherman of Connecticut were appointed to draft a formal statement that would justify the break with Great Britain.

Fourth of July

The Continental Congress was in favor of Lee’s Resolution for Independence on July 2, with an almost unanimous vote followed by the signing of the declaration. John Adams wrote a letter to his wife telling her that, “July 2 will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival.” He also told Abigail that, “The celebrations should include pomp and parade, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations from one end of the continent to the other.” On Jul 4 the the declaration was adopted by the five members of the committee signing and Independence Day was official.

Early Independence Day Celebrations

Prior to the revolutionary years, colonists would hold yearly celebrations honoring the King’s birthday. The celebrations would traditionally include bell ringing, bonfires, speech making and processions or parades.

In contrast, some colonists celebrated Independence Day by holding a mock funeral for their own King George III.

Fourth of July

Fast forward to modern day Independence Day and you will see Americans doing what the forefathers hand in mind all along. Playing games, enjoying good food, having parades and bonfires with guns, which could be likened to today’s fireworks, and plenty of fun.

This Fourth of July take a moment to remember how America was born and why you have your Independence.

Happy Fourth of July from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE.
