Donna’s Beauty Check List

I am a mature woman and have dealt with many of the things that can make one appear less beautiful and older if they are not addressed. That being said, I put together a list of beauty items that can help a woman look both youthful and healthy, no matter her age.  In my next articles I will address how to achieve the below list in detail.

Donna Spangler actress/ Producer

  • Donna’s Beauty Checklist
    Face
    How is your skin? Examine it. Is it smooth? Acne? Hydrated? Evenly toned? Dry? Flaky? Sun damage? If your skin is heavily damaged, you might want to consider a light chemical peel.
    How are your eyes? Red? Clear? Puffy? Circles?
    How are your brows? Are they bushy or trimmed well? Coloring?
    Are your lips plump and even? Chapped?
    Any facial hair? A simple laser treatment will take care of this evil.  Also, plucking or buying an inexpensive facial hair remover is an option as there are many on the market today.
    Lashes – Are they lush and healthy or sparse and short?
    Makeup – wearing too much can be extremely off-putting. Learn the perfect amount to highlight your face. Enlist the help of a friend or professional if you need guidance. There are also some great makeup videos on YouTube.
    Hair
    Is your hair healthy? Thick? Well-groomed?
    Is the color rich and flattering to your complexion? Do you have roots?
    Is the style up-to-date and becoming? Split ends? Frizz?
    Is it shiny or dull?

    Thick healthy hair or the appearance of is important

    This is my body at 54 years old! I am quite prod as I work out 3 to 4 days a week for about 1 hour in the morning!

Body
Is your body fit? Too heavy or too thin?
Is your muscle tone lacking?
Is your body skin sagging?
Do you have discolorations on your body?
Are your fingernails and toe nails groomed?
Are you in proportion? Top and bottom?
Skin color – way too tan/pale?
Is your skin dry and flaky?
Body hair?

Hygiene
Are your teeth clean, brushed and smelling good?

Are your teeth yellow? Missing? Stained? In need of orthodontics? Teeth are crucial to a beautiful face.
Have you showered?
Is your hair clean, groomed well?
Are your clothes pressed, well thought out and appropriate for where you will be going?
Next take a look at your overall package. Look at yourself honestly and write down the things you like and the things that you would like to work on. This may be painful as no one wants to face their flaws, but in order to change something you don’t like, it is essential to address it first.

After your candid evaluation, you need to make a list of your goals and objectives both physically and mentally. Set realistic goals, and give yourself a timeframe. I like to make both short and long-term goals and reward myself for each accomplishment as I make it. Great satisfaction comes from achieving these goals and you will feel so much better about yourself as progress is made.

Produce in skin care products. What you need to know.

pretty lady eating apple

Fruits and vegetables have beneficial antioxidant compounds that truly benefit the body when consumed alone, with your breakfast cereal, in your favorite smoothie or any way you choose to get your daily dose of produce.

Although fruits and vegetables may be great taken by mouth, that doesn’t mean they are going to be great when you put them in a topical skin care product. Topical skin care products need to be formulated to ensure that the ingredients remain active, penetrate the skin and do not lose their benefits when mixed with other ingredients and you must have enough of the fruit or vegetable ingredient to get any benefit out of it.

Here’s a look at three skin care brands with fruit and vegetable ingredients that are worth seeking out and that do it right.

The PURA D’OR brand of hair care formulas include a number of premium organic and natural fruit and vegetable ingredients such as Avocado, Carrot, Cherry, Coconut, Cucumber, Grape, Lemon, Mango, Olive, Orange, Papaya, and Pomegranate.

The formulations of the newly launched Nyakio skin care products are inspired by the family recipes of Nyakio Kamoche Grieco, a first generation American of Kenyan descent. The range of ingredients include but are not limited to: Avocado, Grape, Cucumber, Tomato and Papaya.

The Petal Fresh Pure line of bath, body and hair products uses Mandarin, Mango, Grapefruit, Pomegranate, Cucumber, Lemon, Olive and more in their product formulations.

FOX 46 Good Day Charlotte

Enya Flack of It’s a Glam Thing presents “Beauty: Gadgets & more”

Dr. Marder’s Total Relief Shampoo and Total Relief Conditioner was developed by a dermatologist. Some people get dandruff and others don’t. Some men and women may even suffer from scalp psoriasis. Total relief Shampoo and Conditioner can improve scalp psoriasis in just one week for some people. Dr. Marder’s Total Relief™ Shampoo & Conditioner line is formulated without sulfates or common irritants. The shampoo and conditioner are formulated with natural extracts and antioxidants such as citric acid, coriander fruit oil and essential vitamins. What makes Dr. Marder’s Total Relief™ Shampoo different from all other products is the addition of maximum strength cortisone. The conditioner contains Zinc Pyrithyone. This is good for by everyone not just dandruff and psoriasis suffers. It leaves hair soft and scalp healthy. www.drmarderskincare.com $30 each

Once you have got your hair looking great, you might want to try some new styling like hair crimping. We love the CHI Onyx Euroshine Crimper. Use it for volume and fun looks. CHI Onyx Euroshine 1” Onyx Ceramic Crimping Iron provides volume and texture to create unique styles. The 1” Onyx ceramic Iron’s micro-ridged crimping plates produce noticeably shinier results. In addition, the preset temperature settings offer easily recognizable and customizable temperature selection per hair type. It provides a tight crimped pattern that can create volume at the roots and adds the ultimate texture pattern to any hairstyle. Hair Crimping was huge in the 80s and is back! You can crimp all of your hair or part of your hair. There are so many style options and crimping works on almost any hairstyles. Guys are crimping now too. https://chi.com/product/chi-onyx-euroshine-1-crimping-iron/

Get those eyebrows cleaned up with LA-Tweez Professional Illuminating Tweezers with a Diamond Dust Tip. Illuminating Tweezers crafted from the finest stainless steel, the hand filed tips are perfectly aligned and guaranteed to tweeze. The ultra-bright LED light illuminates your eyebrows and allows you to see those hard to reach hairs. Perfect for both home and on the go, the chic compact carrying case has a built-in magnifying mirror. Available in Black, Gold and Red. $32 http://www.latweez.com/

Sporting newly cleaned up brows is great, especially when you follow it up with WUNDERBROW one-step solution to eyebrow shape and hair loss. The exclusive Permafix Technology and proprietary Hair Fiber Complex creates the perfect brow in under 2 minutes that will last for days – in fact, it’s clinically proven to be water resistant and transfer-proof WUNDERBROW formula contains an exclusive blend of hair-like fibers, combined with specially treated pigments designed to fasten onto skin and hair. There are 5 shades to choose from. Use WUNDERBROW DUAL PRECISION BRUSH – a dual-ended brush too. It’s ideal to. The firm bristled, angled side works perfectly with precision and enables you to mimic fine ‘hair like’ strokes on the brow. Use the spoolie to brush through and groom brows and also soften and smooth out as a final step. $22, wunder2.com

Once the brows are perfect you might opt for some faux lashes. We love Kawaii Girl Cosmetics Human Hair Faux lashes. With proper care these lashes can be worn up to 20 times. They are hand crafted and designed to be ultra-lightweight for a full day of comfortable wear. All human hair lashes are set on clear bands for flexible application
Roppongi: Roppongi is an eye catching, medium volume, long length human hair lash. Like the popular Tokyo nightlife district, you’re sure to be noticed when sporting a pair of these lashes!

Ginza: Ginza is a light volume, long length human hair lash that is perfect for a day out in Tokyo’s toniest shopping district. Ginza is one of the lightest lashes in the Kawaii Girl debut “Tokyo Collection”.

Kanda: Kanda is a demi-flare human hair lash that is the perfect complement to a bold eye or a pop of color with a red lip. These are ideal for date night or a special occasion!

All human hair lashes retail for $12. http://www.kawaiigirlcosmetics.com

Donna’s List of Natural Beauty Concoctions for Face & Hair

As many of you know, I use natural remedies on a regular basis and have shared some of them before but I thought I would share many of them in a list.

simple beauty

Donna Spangler simple beauty

I like to start out with an exfoliant.bowl-with-baking-soda-paste

Do you want to get your skin as smooth as a baby’s bottom? Nothing polishes the face better than the fine granules that baking soda is made of. I love to use this simple and inexpensive home remedy to smooth the skin, especially on the face. It’s quick and easy.donna-baking-soda-scrub

putting the baking soda paste on in a circular motion
It also travels well, dry in a sealed plastic baggy.

First, take a scoop of baking soda and add a small amount of water just enough to make a paste. Then, take the paste and put it on your face rubbing in a circular motion. Cover the whole face and stop when you feel that your face is fully cleaned and polished.

Lastly, run warm water and rinse. Make sure you get all the granules off.

Your skin will feel smooth and polished

Another natural exfoliant is honey. I keep a container in my bathroom so I can use it to wash my face when I take a bath or shower. It takes off the dirt and is a natural antibacterial. It does not strip the skin of natural oils and balances the skin. Even if the honey has started to turn more coarse and sugary I use it as it has a great exfoliant texture. In addition ,it is inexpensive!

 

Below are other options:

Banana oatmeal skin exfoliant
mash a banana with a small amount of oatmeal
blend well and apply to face for 20 minutes and rinse with warm water

Banana Peal acne relief

you can however leave it on overnight
repeat daily until redness goes away.

rinse with warm water and moisturize

For a sunburn
