Christian Dior believed that true sophistication and elegance often arose from the combination of unexpected colors, textures and effects, which can often be seen played out in the colorful, unexpected designs on the Dior runway from the inception of the brand in 1947.

Sadly, San Diego Comic Con has come and gone. But I’m still madly obsessed with some of the cosplay awesomeness seen on blogs and Tumblrs everywhere. Sure, I don’t have the guts to go entirely blue (and nekkid!) like some Mystique look-a-likes, but I don’t mind sporting a vibrant and comic-inspired lip once in awhile either.

Review: How To Choose The Best Exfoliating Face/Body Scrub For Your Skin Type: 4 Sugar & Salt Scrub Picks!

Review: How To Choose The Best Exfoliating Face/Body Scrub For Your Skin Type: 4 Sugar & Salt Scrub Picks!

Natural-based scrubs are a fantastic way to shed away dead skin cells and deep-seated impurities found beneath our skin. So if you’re looking to get that unbeatable complexion this summer season, choosing a good (salt or sugar) scrub is a fantastic way to get that natural-looking glow!

New Research Proves MicroBead Shower Gels/Washes Harmful To Health! Review – Surya Brasil Sapien Body Scrub

Although there are many different products on the market these days, know that different scrubs have many uses based on their ingredients. To get the full beauty breakdown on this popular beauty topic, we’ve consulted Dr. Marina Peredo, Associate Clinical Professor of Dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, to tell us when and where to use either sugar or salt scrubs.

PIDA Exfoliating Gel: How To Best Exfoliate Your Skin Without Harsh Granules That Cause Irritation

To find out whether you should use a salt or sugar scrub, it’s important to check the size of the scrub granules to see how they will affect your skin. “The difference between salt and sugar scrubs is the size of the granules. The smaller the granules, the gentler they are on the skin. Generally, sugar particles are smaller, making them less abrasive on the skin,” says Dr. Marina Peredo. If you find your skin to be a bit more on the sensitive side, then the sugar route is probably safest for your skin.

For a gentle yet effective product, the Glo Minerals Sugar Body Polish uses a natural blend of cane sugar and shea butter to leave your skin smooth and refreshed. Also, proven to ward off eczema, Peredo finds that sugar scrubs are best used for those with any existing skin conditions including rosacea, acne and eczema.

Sugar Scrub

Designed for extra sensitive skin, the LUSH Sugar Scrub always makes a great go-to, as its preservative-free formula softly buffs away dead skin without irritation. Just simply use on all parts of your body next time you shower for brighter and smoother skin.

However, if you are more acne-prone, trying a salt scrub may make all the difference. “Salt scrubs can also be beneficial for harsh acne breakouts as they help in absorbing oil and unclogging pores. Salt has many healing and antiseptic properties. When applied to the skin, salt helps to kill bacteria and reduce inflammation,” Peredo states.

For a salt-based scrub that helps perfect your complexion, look to the MSC Skincare Tangerine And Apple Exfoliating Salt Scrub to tone and balance the skin with natural collagen and elastin-boosting ingredients. Apply to your face or body, and scrub away for truly gorgeous skin.

Suffering from extremely dry skin? For all those tough areas, Peredo recommends a heavy-duty salt scrub to get the job done right. “Salt scrubs are much coarser in texture and are best used on thick, rough patches of skin like callused elbows, knees and feet,” Peredo adds.

For some powerful salt-scrubbing action, the Borghese Sali Esfoliante Salt Scrub uses salt minerals, olive and grapeseed oils to promote healthy cell-turnover and all-over exfoliation.

Review, Ingredients: Darphin Replumping Energetic Cream - Recharges, Restores Skin For A Healthy Glow

I am a big fan of the Darphin line, and have used their products with great success in the past. So, I was eager to try the Replumping Energetic Cream, a light moisturizing cream enriched with the brand’s “unique Enerstim Complex technology” that claims to “instantly enhance skin’s natural, healthy looking glow.”

Darphin Perfecting Body Scrub, Intral Cleansing Milk, Aromatic Seaweed Bath Shower Gel: How To Exfoliate, Soothe Skin

The Enerstim Complex™ combines 2 botanical extracts: sapindus mukorssi, which is the fruit of an Asian tree used in medicine to correct skin conditions, and laminaria digitata, a brown seaweed used in body wraps. The unique combination in the patented formula “acts directly on skin to help stimulate the natural production of cellular energy for a revitalized appearance.” The key ingredients in the fragrant, lightweight formula are:

• Enerstim Complex (revitalizing)
• Vitamin E (antioxidant)
• Hyaluronic Acid (re-plumping)
• Apple, watermelon, lentil (hydrating)
• Shea butter (nourishing)

I used the cream twice a day, morning and evening, for about 10 days. And I loved the results!  My skin really did seem firmer and more taut. I also appreciated the lightweight formula, which was not too greasy for these hot summer days. And the absorption was excellent; when I used it at night, I found no oily residue the next morning.

Darphin Ideal Resource Light Re-Birth Overnight Cream – How To Get Glowing Skin And More Even Complexion/Tone By Morning

Since it does not contain a SPF, it needs to be combined with another product during the day, which may be too many steps for some users. But I do think it’s worth the trouble. All in all, a solid new product that performs very well.

Preview, How It Works: Conair Infiniti Pro 3Q Hair Blow Dryer - Quick, Quality & Quiet - Best Brushless

Infiniti Pro By Conair Curl Secret: Hair Styling Tool With Ceramic Curl Chamber: How To Get Beautiful Curls

For Conair’s newest blow dryer, it’s all about the 3 Qs: quality, quick and quiet.

“Today, the hair dryer over $25 is 30% of the category and that is pretty much where all the growth is coming from,” said Paulette Heller, Vice President of Marketing at Conair. “

“The challenge for us was to take all the benefits that we know [the consumer] loves about hair-dryer performance and deliver even more. If we look at the landscape today, we know that the hair dryer is the most frequently used hair appliance. It has the highest propensity to purchase.”

After seeing the success of its Infiniti, which was launched in 2006 and evolved into Infiniti Pro, Conair decided to create the next evolution of hair dryers with Infiniti Pro by Conair 3Q.  Standing for quick, quality and quiet, Conair executives claim the 3 Qs set this dryer apart.

Quick

• The advanced brush-less motor in the 3Q provides ultra-fast airflow to reduce drying time by up to 70%, which in turn  minimizes the time hair is exposed to the damaging effects of heat styling.

• It dries equivalent to a 2000 watt professional hair dryer

Quiet

• The 3Q is powerful, but quiet with up to 40% less noise with patent pending noise reduction technology.

Quality

• The brush-less motor in the 3Q uses magnets and electronics to power the motor, which extends the life of the dryer by up to 10X. Standard dryer motors use carbon brushes that wear out over time, causing the motor to stop working.

With the new hair dryer, the company is hoping to target multiple consumer groups, including Millennials, Baby Boomers, moms and working professionals, Latinas and men. To generate awareness for Infiniti Pro 3Q, Conair will launch the tool in the U.S. on HSN in mid-August.

Infiniti Pro 3Q, which is priced $119.99, is slated to hit stores in September 2014 and will launch in more than 15,000 U.S. doors, including Target, Ulta and Wal-Mart. The tool will also be sold in global markets, including Canada, Australia and Europe.
