Weight Loss 

Recent studies are showing that obese people have lower levels of vitamin D in their blood. Scientists believe that the body fat actually traps the vitamin. It is still not quite clear whether the obesity causes lower levels of vitamin D, or it’s the other way around, but in a small study of people who were trying to lose weight, those that added vitamin D to a lower calorie diet found it easier to lose weight.

Arnica Natures Anti-Inflammatory


Arnica is a natural inflammatory that is grown in North America, Canada Russia, central Europe, and the Pyrenees. SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE gets its Arnica from the mountains in Montana.

There are also anti-bacterial qualities and anti-inflammatory properties in Arnica as well. Arnica can help reduce pain and speed up wound healing. Recent evidence has shown that Arnica can help the body recover more quickly form toothaches, surgery, and childbirth. In dental patients, Arnica helped control bleeding and pain after the procedure. Reducing swelling is probably one of the most well known properties of Arnica.



Products that contain Arnica help your bruises heal faster after blows, falls, and other bodily traumas that will cause your blood vessels to break up under the skin spilling blood. This causes discoloration and tenderness. Arnica will speed up the healing while prompting the body to send in additional white blood cells that will repair the bruise.

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.

Fourth of July

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.

Dry Skin Happens Everywhere

Dry skin

It isn’t summer without dry skin, and if you suffer from patchy, scaly skin because of the heat, SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE can help. SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE offers dry skin sufferers relief with its all-natural skin care line that protects all skin types, even if you are sensitive to other so-called natural products.

Even if you live in a sub-tropical climate, you can still have dry and flaky skin because your sweat glands will be working overtime.

SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE explains that although dry and hot climates or dry winter weather is blamed for dry skin, it can be just as problematic in humid climates.

It could be your Age or Genetics

As your skin ages it will produce fewer sweat and oil glands. This results in skin that is more apt to be dry. In addition, you can also blame your parents and your ancestors, as dry skin tends to be hereditary. SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE explains that if you use greasy or heavy lotions or creams, especially if you are over 40, or if you slather sunscreen on all year round you may have to deal with dry and flaky skin. If you live in a state, such as Oregon or Washington that tends to be cloudy, you could also be more likely to suffer from dry skin.

Skin Care Products and Soap

There are many types of skin care products and soaps that are very drying regardless of where you live, as some products will strip your skin of its natural oils.

Dry SkinIf you have dry flaky skin never use products that contain fragrances, deodorants, or alcohol, as these ingredients will cause dry skin. SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE contains all natural herbs that will soothe your dry skin while moisturizing at the same time.

If you suffer from dry skin, SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE recommends that you wash your face often throughout the day, as sweat in a humid climate will dry your skin. Also, look for all natural soap free skin care products that include a good natural moisturizer such as SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE.

Five things you Probably Don’t Know about Thanksgiving

Southwest Sunshine

When you gather your friends and family together for Thanksgiving this year, give a thought to the pilgrims and the Native Americans as you sit down to enjoy your annual feast.

According to SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE, there are probably a few things that you didn’t know about one of America’s favorite holidays. As hard as it may seem to believe, nearly every belief about Thanksgiving has either changed or developed into new facets and traditions.

Southwest Sunshine

These days the first thought about turkey day is stuffing yourselves with great food; however, Thanksgiving wasn’t also about feasting. Before the 17th century, Thanksgiving was more about mediation, prayer, and hold on to your hat for this one, fasting.

Southwest Sunshine

Historians are still scratching their heads when it comes to Thanksgiving, as there are no recorded instances of the colonists sharing a feast with the Native Americans after harvests, or any other time for that matter. The pilgrims and the Native Americans had a long history of violence so it is quite unlikely that the two groups gathered together for Thanksgiving.

Southwest Sunshine

Eating turkey doesn’t make you fall asleep. Contrary to popular belief, it is most probably the wine and other alcoholic libations that make you sleepy. Tryptophan, the ingredient in turkey that supposedly makes you go to sleep needs to be consumed on an empty stomach and even then the amino acids that are in the protein will reach your brain before it can take effect. According to National Geographic, soybeans contain much more tryptophan than turkey does. No wonder people who go on a tofurkey binge are the first to pass out. For those that are unaware, tofu is the main ingredient in tofurkey and tofu is made from soybeans.

Southwest Sunshine

The first TV dinner actually came from an overabundance of turkey when a company known as Swanson and Sons found themselves stuck with about 250 tons of turkey. A salesman by the name of Gerry Thomas came up with the idea to form an assembly line where employees used spatulas and ice-cream scoops to fill 5,000 aluminum trays full of turkey, corn-bread dressing, peas and sweet potatoes creating the first ever TV dinner. Mr. Thomas admitted to getting the idea from those packaged airline food trays.

Southwest Sunshine

The popular Christmas Carol, Jingle Bells, was originally a Thanksgiving song. Composer James Pierpont wrote the song for children celebrating turkey day in 1857. It became so popular that it was repeated at Christmas as well with people singing it again, and again.

This Thanksgiving SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE would like you to take a moment to be thankful for family, friends, and everything that you enjoy on your table. Happy Thanksgiving!

Fifty nine percent of those patients did not have success with conventional treatment, but showed remarkable improvement when honey was applied topically.

Southwest Sunshine

Like its many other uses, honey has been used for centuries as a skin care treatment and can actually help promote a radiant and soft complexion while improving skin tone.

Good Skin Care Starts Early

Southwest Sunshine

Good skin care should start at an early age for both boys and girls as teaching good skin care habits when your kids are younger will not only show them how to take care of their skin, but also give them great looking skin for the rest of their lives.

Just like other healthy habits, such as brushing, flossing, and eating a well-balanced diet, a good skin care routine should also be incorporated into habits for life.

Southwest Sunshine

It’s never too early to practice good skin care. If your kids keep it up, or if you are a teen and take care of your skin with all natural skin care products, such as SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE, you will look amazing by the time you are in your 40’s.

While you may come from a family with exceptional genes, it may not help your skin when you get older, especially if you do not practice a good skin care routine. The way that your skin ages will depend quite a bit on your genetic makeup, however environmental factors, such as smoking and too much sun will age you faster than a 29 year old who has been taking care of his or skin for years.

Southwest Sunshine

SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE recommends that you start your kids off with a simple yet effective good skin care routine in the morning and before bed. This will ensure that your kids are getting a good start when it comes to wrinkled and damaged skin.

Skin will begin to start aging when boys and girls are young. In fact, freckles are usually the first sign that your child has had too much exposure to the sun.

Southwest Sunshine

Teaching good skin care to your kids when they are young should start with gentle cleansing and of course sun protection. It is quite easy to encourage young children about sun protection than it is to try to tell a teenager how bad an indoor tanning salon is.

If you would like to start teaching your children healthy habits order a skin care system from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE to help encourage your kids into practicing good skin care. Order your SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE products today.
