Exfoliate your Dry Skin with this Brown Sugar Scrub

January 24, 2011  |  Tips & Technique  |  No Comments

The New Year always has us scrambling for the latest cleanses, spa treatments, and workout gear, thanks to some extra indulgences during the holiday season.  In an effort to whip our skin back into tip-top shape, TEMPTU has gathered a DIY skincare recipe, featuring natural ingredients that can help guide you back to the health wagon.

Because TEMPTU values safety, we believe that it would only be fair to remind you to approach your spa day with caution, especially when using new products on your skin.  So, before whipping up the recipe and slathering the concoctions all over your skin, keep in mind that it is important to perform a patch test on a small area of your skin, which will test for any allergic reaction.  Please, if you notice a skin reaction during the patch test, then do not continue smearing your skin with the ingredients.  Discard any skincare recipes that cause an allergic reaction.

Hello, Beautiful!

November 25, 2010  |  Inspiration  |  No Comments

Hello, lovely fans!  Welcome to our first of several blogs titled, “Hello, Beautiful!,” an exploration of the latest  beauty and fashion trends that are hot right now in the U.S.  Because TEMPTU loves our fans, we decided that we would give a shout out to each and every one of you by showcasing your city on our blog.  We are especially interested in featuring cities that never get a whole lot of attention, and even some of those that do.  So, without further ado, we’d like to introduce you to a city that is commonly overlooked–Cincinnati, Ohio.

Welcome to Cincinnati, Ohio, a city that is known for its famous Skyline Chili, Graeter’s ice cream, and Montgomery Inn ribs.  Located in the Midwest, Cincinnati is a place of extreme politeness but with few hints of upscale fashion.  Unlike the hot and sometimes odd fashions you see strutting around cities like New York, Cincinnati is home to the hoodie and t-shirt look.  Cinci gals know how to rock messy buns and ponytails with their barely-there makeup, while Cinci guys top their heads with backwards ball caps.  Dressed for comfort and reflecting their laid-back attitudes, college students from all over the Cincinnati area flock to their 8 a.m. classes with these rushed but relaxed looks, keeping their beauty and fashion trends to a minimum.

Are QR Codes the New Tech Beauty Trend?

November 24, 2010  |  Inspiration  |  No Comments

What if there was an easier way to access video tutorials from beauty sites?  What if there was an easy way to scan a beauty item at the mall and have the information for that product automatically pop up on your smartphone?  Well, ladies and gentleman, you’re in luck, because there is a new technology out there that does both and so much more!

QR Code Technology is the latest digital trend that all marketers want to gain full access to, but what are they exactly, and more importantly, what do these ‘codes’ look like?  Originally used in Japan to track parts for vehicle manufacturers, QR codes are now the hottest tool used to promote beauty and other consumer products.  Business marketers particularly find these square black and white codes useful because they can help provide instant feedback for company sales, but cosmetic companies, in particular, have incorporated QR codes into their campaigns to aid beauty enthusiasts scrambling through products at the mall.
