Valentine’s Day dates back to the fertility festival in Rome, Italy. The Lupercalia festival involved young men drawing a woman’s name in the annual lottery. The lucky woman would become his sexual companion for the next year.

Young men and women in the Middle Ages would draw names from a bowl to find out who would be their Valentine. After the drawing ended, the men would wear the names of the Valentine on their sleeve for an entire week.

Valentine’s Day

One of the most popular theories about the origins of Valentine’s Day involves Emperor Claudius II. Claudius did not want any of the Roman men to wed during wartime. Bishop Valentine went against the Emperors wishes and married couples in secret. For his treacherous act, the Bishop went to jail before being executed. When he was in jail, the Bishop penned a note to the daughter of the jailor and signed it, “From your Valentine.”

Healthy Food instead of the Bad Stuff

Healthy food really does mean healthy skin, and if you are having a tough time keeping your skin from breaking out, it could have something to do with your diet. SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE explains that steering clear of fried and processed foods can help keep your skin clear, but so can avoiding these foods.

Healthy Food

Rice Cakes

Touted by dieters all over the planet, the fat erasing rice cake will cause your blood sugar to go through the roof. When that happens it can speed wrinkle formation as your body metabolizes the simple carbohydrates in the rice cakes exactly the same way that is does with sugar, by turning them into glucose. Once converted, it will stick to proteins, such as collagen, that fight wrinkles.

Healthy Food

Healthy Cereals

Although whole grains are lower when it comes to the glycemic index, many of those so-called healthy foods, including cereals are loaded with sugar, and just like rice cakes, can cause those glucose spikes that will speed up wrinkle formation.

Healthy Food

Milk

According to the ads, “Milk does a body good,” but it isn’t as good for your skin, especially skim milk. Milk contains growth hormones, which can affect your insulin as those hormones can make their way into the blood stream. This can also cause inflammation and an excess of oil production resulting in a massive breakout. Nut and organic milks are healthy foods that could be a good alternative.

Healthy Food

Chips

You may think munching on the occasional chip, even the baked variety can’t hurt, but the refined carbs can trigger collagen damaging oxidative stress meaning that over time you will start to notice wrinkles and fine lines. Skip the chips if you don’t want to look older than you really are and go for more healthy food.

Healthy Food

Smoothies

With Americans eating up a whopping 22 teaspoons of sugar every day, it’s no wonder their skin is suffering for it. Most sugars are hidden in the most surprising places, and one of the biggest offenders is the humble smoothie, but don’t blame the natural sugar as made to order smoothies from chains or the ones that you buy at the grocery store contain frozen yogurt and even sherbet, all of which are teaming with added sugar. If you must have a smoothie, make it at home with good for you foods such as yogurt or unsweetened almond or coconut milk.

Healthy Food

Eating healthy food and using all natural skin care products, such as SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE, will help you stay healthy and young looking. Order SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE skin care system today.

Too Little Protein can Cause Wrinkly Skin

Southwest Sunshine

If you are always on the go and find yourself neglecting your skin because of time, SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE has the answer. When you purchase the organic skin care line of products online from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE, all you need is five minutes in the morning and five minutes at night to keep your skin firm, healthy and glowing.

Southwest Sunshine

Most people are aware that too much sun and not enough sleep can cause problems for your skin, but so can your diet.

If your meals contain foods that are known to cause inflammation such as margarine, vegetable oils, white bread, red meats, processed or sugary foods, your skin is not thanking you for it. Because these types of foods could cause inflammation, you could be accelerating wrinkles. If you want to prevent premature again, use a natural skin care product line, such as SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE, and load up on flaxseed, salmon, and avocados. Skip the canola, corn and sunflower oil and use coconut or olive oil instead as it can help your skin retain its soft and supple look.

Southwest Sunshine

Every day it seems like scientists are coming up with more proof that you really are what you eat, and that is certainly the case with protein. Recent studies have indicated that too little protein could cause cracks, wrinkles, and tears in your skin. Try to eat at least one protein food every meal. If you are a vegetarian, there are plenty of foods such as beans, spinach, mushrooms, lentils, green peas, quinoa, nuts, nut butter, chickpeas, and tofu. Other great protein sources for vegetarians include tempeh, edamame, leafy greens, kale, hemp milk, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, and non-dairy milk such as almond or coconut.

When it comes to healthy skin, it is important that you watch what you eat, consume plenty of protein and practice good skin care habits using a natural skin care product such as SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE. Order your skin care system online today.

Little Known Facts for Healthy Skin

SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE

Most people take their skin for granted. However, SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE wants to share some little known facts about the largest organ in the body.

  • When stretched, your healthy skin is two meters. That is about six and a half feet long.
  • Your skin accounts for about fifteen percent of your body weight.
  • There are two different types of skin, glabrous and hairy.
  • Everyone has three layers of skin. Epidermis the top layer, which is dead and waterproof, the middle layer called Dermis, which contains your sweat and hair glands, and the bottom layer called the Subcutis. Your Subcutis contains fat and large blood cells.
  • The thinnest skin is located on your eyelids, while the thickest skin is located on the soles of your feet.
  • Scar tissue does not have any sweat glands or hair follicles.
  • Your skin will renew itself every 28 days.
  • Every minute of every day, your healthy skin sheds 30,000 dead skin cells.
  • Sweat does not have an odor; it is the bacteria on your skin, when mixed with sweat that produces body odor.
  • Lipids are natural fats that keep the outer layer of your skin moist and healthy. Lipids can be destroyed if you use chemicals and alcohol on your healthy skin. SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE natural skin care products do not contain alcohol or chemicals.
  • Your skin has its own bacteria microbiome with more than 1000 different species
  • You have more than 14 species of fungi that live in between your toes.
  • Human skin comes in a variety colors from all corners of the globe.
    Skin color comes from a protein known as melanin. Large cells, much like tentacles, known as melanocytes produce and distribute the melanin.
  • There are two types of melanin, Pheomelanin, which produces yellow to red skin color, and Eumelanin giving people dark brown to black skin. One in 10,000 people do not produce melanin having a condition known as albinism.
  • It takes up to six months for a baby to develop his or her permanent skin tone.
  • Acne is caused by an over production of the cells that line your sweat glands. One out of 20 women suffers from acne, while 1 in 80 men suffer from the same condition. A baby can sometimes get acne during the first few weeks of life.
  • For healthy skin, you need Vitamin A that can help treat both cellulite and sun damage, Vitamin D, which can help reduce growths and spots, and Vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant that helps to regenerate Vitamin E while providing sun protection for healthy skin. Healthy skin also needs a good natural skin care regime such as SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE, which contains all of the vitamins listed above.

How Diabetes Affects your Skin

SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE

There are more than 29 million people in the United States who suffer from diabetes, which roughly 9.5 percent of Americans have been diagnosed with diabetes.

SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE

Although diabetes affects every part of your body, skin problems associated with the disease are usually the first signs that you have diabetes. Luckily, most of the skin conditions are easily treatable if caught early on. Skin conditions associated with diabetes include fungal and bacterial infections.

There are several types of bacterial infections that may occur if you have diabetes including;

  • Eyelid gland infections, also known as sties
  • Boils
  • Infections of hair follicles, or folliculitis
  • Carbuncles, which are deep skin infections and the underlying tissue
  • Infections surrounding the nails
  • Staph infections

SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE

Although bacterial infections were once life threatening, a physician can now treat them. However, doctors also believe that a good skin care routine, such as SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE, can also help with bacterial infections.

SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE

Fungal infections that often affect people with diabetes are known as Candida albicans. This yeast like fungal infection will create itchy rashes that are moist and red and are surrounded by scales and tiny blisters. These types of infections usually occur in the moist and warm folds of the skin including around the nails, the breasts, between your toes and fingers, around the corners of your mouth, the groin, and armpits. Common diabetic fungal infections include ringworm, vaginal infections, athlete’s foot, and jock itch.

SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE

Localized itching can also be a side effect of diabetes and is usually caused by poor circulation, dry skin or a yeast infection. When poor circulation is to blame for the itching, the worst areas are usually at the lower parts of your legs. Try using an all-natural moisturizer after you bathe, such as SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE to help with the itching.

Next week SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE will talk about other skin problems that can occur, and usually only happen to people with diabetes. These include diabetic blisters, diabetic dermopathy, necrobiosis lipoidica diabeticorum, and eruptive xanthomatosis.

If you suffer from diabetes, or know someone who does, order all natural skin care products from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE, as they may be able to help with some of your skin care problems associated with diabetes.

Affordable Organic Skin Care Products Online

The skin care industry is big business, but how do you know that the skin care products you are purchasing are really good for your skin?

Americans spend literally billions of dollars annually on skin care products. In fact, the United States are the leaders when it comes to forking out hard earned cash on skin care products, however, the US is ranked 23 when it comes to the satisfaction of life ranking. Japan is number two when it comes to spending on cosmetics but is ranked number 90 in the satisfaction with life category.

Southwest Sunshine

The two countries that are the other end of spending when it comes to makeup, fragrances, skin care and hair care are Sweden and the Netherlands, both ranking well below Japan and the US when it comes to spending money on skin care products, but both countries have the highest rankings when it comes to satisfaction with life. Maybe it could have something to do with the fact that all of those high priced skin care products are damaging the bank accounts of the Japanese and Americans while doing nothing to help with fine lines and wrinkles.

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.
