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.

What Can Help?

If you are susceptible to sunburn, or have a sun allergy try the HERBAL HEALING GEL from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE. The HERBAL HEALING GEL can help relieve dry, red, and itchy skin and helps with burns and other skin conditions including psoriasis and rosacea.

The History of Moisturizer

Southwest Sunshine

According to anthropologists, humans have been using some sort of moisturizer for the past 10,000 years. People in Africa and Brazil used palm oil, Native American tribes used animal fat to keep skin soft and supple while Latin American women were partial to avocado.

The ancient Sumerians, the first known civilization, which was located where Iraq is today, created natural salves from minerals, animals, or pulverized plants. They combined the ingredients with tree oils and wine before applying to their skin as a moisturizer.

Ancient Egyptian parchments explain how moisturizer and body creams were found at the burial sites. Cleopatra was known for using sesame oil and olive oil to keep her skin looking young. Resinous myrrh, oil of Ben, wine, honey, cardamom, and bitter olives were also made by the Egyptians who used the ointment as a moisturizer.

Southwest Sunshine

The Bible talks about lotions made from spices and olive oil. One Byzantine passage recommends a facial mask made of myrrh, egg yolks, aloe, and hot rose oil.

Olive oil was a popular moisturizer that was used by the ancient Greeks with Homer describing Hera anointing herself with scented olive oil before seducing Zeus. Some Greek women swore by an anti-aging routine that required them to spread bread and milk on their body and face before going to bed while Hippocrates used honey on his face for a moisturizer as he believed it would give him a, “Fresh and jovial look.”

Southwest Sunshine

Roman physician Galen was the first to create a cold cream moisturizer using rose oil, melted beeswax, and water. He called it cold cream because that is how it made your skin feel. This was developed around 200 BC.

Southwest Sunshine

Manufactured body creams became popular in the 1800’s with new ingredients including petroleum jelly. Lanolin and mineral oils were also added to moisturizer around the same time.

Today there are thousands of body creams and moisturizers available with more than 80 percent of women in the United States claiming to use body or hand lotion on a regular basis, however, a huge percentage of those creams and moisturizers are loaded with chemicals, but not SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE.

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.

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.

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.

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.

You really are what you eat and according to SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE, what you feed your body is just as important as what you feed your skin.

Nourishing from the inside is imperative as your cells shed constantly in order to generate new cells and that means it is essential to provide your body with healthy nutrients to support growth. By eating a balanced diet you will feed your skin keeping it younger looking, supple and soft.

Fruits and veggies are loaded with antioxidants that will help protect your skin against free radicals such as pollution, smoke and other toxic substances that you and your skin breathe in every day. Try to eat five portions of colorful fruit and veggies that contain beta-carotene found in carrots and sweet potatoes and plenty of spinach and kale that contain lutein, which is a powerful antioxidant.

Crash diets are one of the worst things that you can do to your body and your skin. Yo Yo dieting will take its toll on your skin causing stretch marks, wrinkles and sagging. When you lose and gain weight on a regular basis your skin will suffer for it, as crash diets are low on vitamins as well.

Don’t be afraid to include healthy fats in your diet. Not only do nuts, fish, avocados, and seeds provide your body with essential fatty acids, polyunsaturated and monosaturated fats act as a moisturizer for your skin helping to keep it soft, supple, and healthy. All of these fats contain Vitamin E as well which helps protect your skin against dangerous free radicals.
