Christmas around the World

Southwest Sunshine

It’s Christmas Day and if you are enjoying your time with family and friends, SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE would like to continue sharing some little known facts about Christmas traditions around the world.

In Australia Christmas occurs at the beginning of the summer. School holidays begin from the middle of December to the early part of February. Because it is so warm in Australia during the summer, most families forgo cooking and opt for a barbecue cooking up lots of seafood. Australians also celebrate with Carols by Candlelight on Christmas Eve with celebrations occurring in every state across the country. Australians also decorate their homes with the native, “Christmas Bush.”

Only one percent of the folks who live in China are Christians. That means that most people don’t know much about Christmas. With that being said, a fairly new tradition that is becoming popular in China is called, “Ping’an Ye,” meaning a quiet or peaceful evening, it involves people handing out apples to family and friends.

Christmas trees are popular in Greece, but an older tradition that families still follow features a shallow wooden bowl. These wooden bowls have a piece of wire suspended around the rim with basil wrapped around a cross that hangs down from the wire. The bowl holds a small amount of water that keeps the basil fresh and alive. Once a day, mom will dip the basil and the cross into holy water before sprinkling it around each room of the house.

Just like Australia, Costa Rica’s school holidays begin in December with families decorating their homes with tropical flowers. The Pasito, a nativity scene, sits in the center of every homes display. Cypress branches, ribbons, and red coffee berries are used to make Christmas wreaths.

Armenia celebrates Christmas on January 6, which is also the day of Epiphany, meaning the public revelation that Jesus Christ was indeed God’s son.

As you celebrate Christmas with your family and friends this year, take a moment to appreciate other countries traditions and enjoy! Merry Christmas everyone!

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.

Skimping on Sleep Can Cause Problems for your Skin

SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE

If you are having more late nights than you would like, you are probably noticing a difference in the way your skin looks and feels. Getting enough sleep is essential if you want to keep your skin healthy and vibrant. There really is something to be said about, “Beauty Sleep,” and according to recent studies, a lack of sleep really can wreck havoc on your skin.

SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE

Even if you use a great all natural skin care product, such as SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE, skimping on sleep will really take its toll on your face. Your skin will begin to lose luster, bags will begin to appear under your skin, and your tired skin will start to sag.

When you don’t get enough sleep, the blood vessels in your face will start to dilate, that’s what causes those unappealing dark circles. If you rub your eyes while you are awake because you are over tired, it’s not going to help the dark circles either. The organic line of skin care products from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE can help those dark circles fade, but if you don’t get enough sleep, it will become an uphill battle.

SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE

Lack of sleep will also make you stressed, and as discussed in a previous blog, stress will affect your skin. When you are stressed because of a lack of sleep, you will not only look sad, tired, and angry, but you will also look older.

SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE

Late nights spent smoking and drinking will cause even more problems. Alcohol will affect the quality of your sleep causing bags underneath your eyes, while smoking leads to wrinkles. However, not all is lost, as there are some things you can do to change your sleeping habits.

SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE

SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE explains that your entire body, including your skin, repairs itself while you are sleeping. When you slumber, your skin will renew itself growing new skin cells while replacing the older skin cells. It is rebalancing, restoring, and repairing, and when you add an all-natural skin care system to the mix, such as SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE, you will notice a huge difference.

The great thing about your skin is that it will recover quickly. When you get a good night’s sleep, you, and everyone else will begin to notice a difference in your skin and comment on how well rested you are looking.

SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE

So how much sleep do you actually need? Experts say that between seven and nine hours of sleep will help you look better rested. However, keep in mind that too much sleep can cause your skin cells to breakdown. If you find yourself over tired during the day, try taking a nap instead of sleeping 10 to 12 hours. Unfortunately, unlike your savings account, you cannot bank sleep.

Start improving your sleep habits and don’t forget to incorporate an all-natural skin care system from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE into your routine. Order yours today.

Sleep Can Help Prevent Insomnia and Aging

Southwest Sunshine

When you age your skin and body tend to notice the affects, but what most people don’t realize is that aging can also affect your sleeping patterns. Older folks may wake up earlier, go to sleep earlier and not get as deep a sleep as they used to, and although these changes are normal when it comes to aging, waking up tired every single day and disturbed sleep and other signs of insomnia are not a normal. Sleep is vital for your emotional and physical health, especially for people over 50. However, there are some things that you can do to help overcome problems that are related to age.

Southwest Sunshine

Sleeping is so important, but especially for mature adults. A good night’s sleep helps concentration and memory while allowing your body to repair cell damage that has occurred during your daily activities. Sleeping is also good for your skin and refreshes the immune system while helping prevent disease.

Southwest Sunshine

Many doctors believe that sleeping is a barometer when it comes to health, almost like taking blood pressure or a temperature. Older adults that are unable to sleep may also suffer from memory problems, a poor attention span and even depression. People who suffer from insomnia, especially those over 50, are also more susceptible to falls, increased pain sensitivity, and the use of more over the counter and prescription drugs. Recent research has also indicated that older adults who lack sleep may also have an increased risk of weight issues, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and breast cancer.

Southwest Sunshine

Although the amount of sleep required will vary, most healthy adults require about seven to nine hours of sleep each night in order to function properly and at their best. However, how you wake up feeling after a night of sleep is much more important than how many hours you actually slept. People who wake up feeling tired or not well rested may have problems or insomnia that should be addressed by a doctor.

Southwest Sunshine

 

Next week, SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE all natural skin care problems will discuss how sleep can change how you age and what a lack of sleep can do to your overall health, including your skin.

Taking hot baths and showers feel great, especially if you have been out in the cold, but those same showers and baths are quite damaging to your skin. As difficult as it may seem to take lukewarm baths and showers, try to limit your shower time to about 10 minutes. If you are having a bath, add some almond oil or lavender to the water to help moisturize your skin.

Believe it or not, a hot cup of cocoa could cause you to dehydrate, much the same as alcohol does. For every glass of wine or cup of caffeine you indulge in, chase it with a glass of water. If you can skip the coffee, have a cup of chamomile or green tea.
