Pinky Chai’s All-Natural ‘Boo’-Licious Beauty Blends


If you follow my blog, you know I love food. I’ve discovered a few more uses for food — beyond just feeding your face. Here is my list of all-natural beauty tips, remedies and regimens…Halloween-style:

Face lines from evil cackling?

WHITE GRAPES

Squeeze juice from 2 white grapes and mix with 1 teaspoon of sugar -- Leave on skin for 15 minutes & rinse. Repeat 2x a week.

Smooth wrinkles, crows feet and laugh lines with white grapes. This super fruit contains alpha-hydroxy acids (much like expensive acid peels) that dissolve and exfoliate the dead outer layer of skin.

WHITE TEA

You don’t need expensive collagen implants. White tea wards off evil wrinkles and keeps skin soft and youthful-looking by boosting skin’s natural collagen.

Sip 1 cup of white tea a day to keep skin smooth from wrinkles and to keep skin soft and supple.

PUMPKIN

Pumpkin works as a softener to skin, especially when combined with other yummy ingredients like, yogurt (an all-natural exfoliant) and oats (a great skin moisturizer). Keep skin soft and smooth with the witches’ brew below.

Monster mash 3 medium strawberries together with 1 tablespoons of honey. Spread onto face and let sit for 10-15 minutes to reap the benefits of this breakout banisher.

Need to “scare away” breakouts?

STRAWBERRIES & HONEY

Strawberries banish dry skin and honey works as a natural astringent by making blemishes disappear. The yummy concoction below, scares away blackheads, pimples AND dry skin — like poof!

Need a sleep potion for restless nights?

CHERRY JUICE

Drink a glass of cherry juice for restful sleep before climbing into your coffin at night.

Cherry juice contains a natural pain-killing ingredient, which promotes more restful sleep. Research suggests and The Count agrees — you’ll get a good 17 more minutes of deep sleep by drinking this wickedly good nightcap.

Feel like a zombie from lack of sleep?

 

GINGER TEA

Ginger offers a variety of benefits among soothing evil tummy troubles and easing achiness to promote a more restful sleep.

Mix up a wicked brew of ginger tea for a good night's sleep.

Scratchy throat from shrieking and howling at the moon?

FLAX SEED

Bring 1 teaspoon of flax seeds and 1 cup of water to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes. Strain seeds and sip while warm.

Flax seed is an all-natural ingredient that loosens pflegm. Use the witchy spell below, to get back to howling, pflegm-free! As a bonus, flax seed helps to curb mood swings.

PEPPERMINT TEA

Put peppermint tea in your cauldron and inhale.

Put peppermint tea in your cauldron and inhale the steamy, peppermint goodness.

The natural menthol in peppermint tea releases sinister pflegm (better than over-the-counter expectorants) and gets you back to your old self, again.

vinegar bottles

Bring this unsightly affliction to a dead end by mixing 1 part vinegar and 2 parts warm water for a “fungus-freaking” foot soak. Soak feet for 15 minutes daily to banish the evil fungus banshee, for good.

Nail fungus creeping up on you?

VINEGAR

This common household product stops fungus and athlete’s foot in its’ tracks. The acid in vinegar destroys fungus, like garlic does to vampires.

Flat, dull hair got you feeling witchy?

ID-100185760

Combine 2 tablespoons of fresh rosemary and 2 cups of water into a pot. Boil. Simmer for 3 minutes. Cool and transfer the elixer into a spray bottle. Spritz on hair to make it glisten and shine.

ROSEMARY

Don’t shy away from the light just because your hair isn’t shiny and lustrous. Make it shine and glisten in the sunlight (AND the moonlight) with this clever concoction.

rosemary and mint conditioner

or…try my fave cheap conditioner EverStrong Sulfate-Free Fortify System Reconstruct Conditioner by L’Oreal Paris. It costs $6-8 at any department store or drug store. It is one of the best conditioners I’ve ever used. Not only does it strengthen my hair (after just one use — according to the L’Oreal Paris website), but the rosemary makes my hair super shiny and the mint keeps my locks smelling fresh and clean. The rosemary-mint combo also works as an aromatherapy to invigorate the senses. Try it — it’s seriously great. No one is paying me to say this, I just LOVE this product enough to promote it. It’s de-liciously cheap and seriously good for your hair.

Pinky’s Sunday Flick Picks (V.1)


If you’ve read my other posts, you know I’m passionate about a lot of things.

….and now, I’ll talk about my love for movies.

I love curling up with a good movie or TV show, especially on the weekends. & especially one with a decent plot and a solid script. & of course, there must be food involved.

I’ll admit, there are a million movies out there and, many of them I haven’t seen. In 2008 I worked for a video store and in my time there, I saw more than a normal person’s fair share of movies.

I tended to go a bit overboard, renting huge stacks of movies knowing I couldn’t possibly view them all within the allotted rental time. It’s insanity, I know but, I just couldn’t help myself.

I wanted to cram as many movies into my head, as possible.

And my sales were good + rentals were free..why not?

Here’s one of my favorite Bob’s Burger clips to break up the monotony — my favorite character, bunny-hat donning Louise gets a crush…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Jq4IIZrHu8

Even though you didn’t ask, here are my top five favorite movie genres:

  1. comedy
  2. romantic-comedy
  3. fantasy
  4. documentaries
  5. horror…I also like horror-comedy combos, but we’ll discuss that next week…

In terms of movies, I don’t tend to go out to the movies, per say. I prefer to keep my $10 or $20 and watch it on Netflix or rent it. Usually, on my couch or in my pajamas, in the comfort of home. Needless to say, due to my anti-theater penny pinching, my movie viewing is only oldies but goodies, the slightly newly released and the occasional “new release”.

But I DO love movies, and there are already a ton of them out there with new releases spitting out every week. So let’s get this film party started.

Pinky’s Flick Pick of The Week

If you like Steve Carrell or Kiera Knightly or irony at its finest..I dig all 3, you might be interested in watching — “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World”.

If you like music for your viewing pleasure, check this clip:

Pinky’s Tantalizing TV Pick of the Week

Where is it always sunny? In Philadelphia, of course.

Actually, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration a division of the U.S. Department of Commerce — it’s actually only sunny in Philly 56% of the year…but 56 is my favorite number so it all works out : ).

“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” is one of my top 10, hands down, favorite TV shows. Just so you know..

I’m not sure if they’re going off of a script or making it up as they go along, like improv but it’s hysterically wrong. There’s nothing they won’t say. To sum it up, in my words: It’s a cluster of words and actions leaving all thought of consequence and personal impact in the dust. So, if you’re the easily offended type — you’ve been warned.

P. My  first “sunny” post. I can’t promise I won’t post more…I might. <side note: you most definitely can watch all 7 seasons of “It’s Always Sunny” on Netflix.com>

 

Stay tuned next week kiddies — for the comprehensive ‘Pinky’s  Horror, Haunts and Zombie Boo Flicks Top 25 List’. Halloween is almost heeeeeerrree…
MwahahahaHA…
