Dolly Parton never ages. It’s true, the singer + songwriter hasn’t aged a day in years. The key? Cheap beauty products.

That’s right! Parton says the key to exceptional skincare is affordable makeup and skincare products that cost less than $20.

According to Refinery29, Parton’s beauty regime consists of unconventional products from the 19th and 20th century such as Pond’s Cold Cream Cleanser, Vaseline, Max Factor, Olay, and Maybelline. All of these products are available at drug stores and other miscellaneous retail-friendly stores. She told the publication, “I’ve got shelves and drawers full of every new makeup going on, even the expensive ones. But I still tend to go back to old faithfuls.”

The songwriter even wore OPI Strawberry Margarita nail polish to her interview, which is available $12. She fancies bold colors but simple hygiene when unwinding at home after a long day’s work.

During quarantine, Parton still kept up her simple beauty regime and glam routine – even if it were just her at her house. She says, “I always say that the only way I’d be caught without makeup is if a radio fell into the bathtub and electrocuted me. So yes, I’m always in glam!”

The country music icon has released her very own fragranceDolly – Secret From Above is released in partnership with Scent Beauty and smells quite heavenly. Her signature scent is a mixture of butterflies, hearts, and hope, and holds true of the makings from a rags to riches storyline.

It’s safe to say that in case of any emergencies, Dolly Parton will be ready to go – glammed and everything.

What is Dolly Parton up to?

At 75 years old, Dolly Parton is far from retiring. The country music legend released a duet version of Reba’s “Does He Love You” with the star for McEntire’s “Revived Remixed Revisited” collection.

Parton has had quite the film career as well as her music career. In December of 2015, “Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors” filled living rooms. The film starred Alyvia Alyn Lind as young Parton. November of 2019, “Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings,” an eight-episode Netflix series documenting the singer + songwriter’s musical endeavors, aired. Just a year later, Parton’s biographical documentary “Here I Am” came out.

Lastly, “Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square” came out in November of 2020 which won her a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Television Movie.

Parton’s Songteller: My Life in Lyrics, Limited Edition is out now. According to her socials, Songteller is, “A collector’s item that features stories behind 175 songs and a 45 record on pink vinyl with two never-before-released demos.”

If you’re really feeling lucky, one of Parton’s star-studded outfits will be auctioned off for a charity ahead of the Grammys that will benefit music industry workers.
