• EPISODE 187: Anti-Aging Skincare Secrets From Dr. Manish Shah, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Denver CO

    The Best Anti-Aging Best Practices

    Welcome to part 1 of this 2-part episode with Dr. Manish Shah. We are talking skincare and anti-aging best practices in this interview, and I promise, you’ll learn a LOT about what to do and what NOT to do when it comes to looking your best. There’s a lot of nonsense online to wade through- from celebrities on infomercials to magazines pushing drugstore moisturizers that claim totally unreasonable outcomes. Dr. Shah explains the real truth and what women should focus on and consider, from topical skincare to elective cosmetic and surgical procedures. Be sure to listen to both parts of this 2-part interview! You can listen to part 2 by clicking here.

  • Glowbiotics Giveaway!

    Glowbiotics Giveaway

    The Best Anti-Aging Probiotic Skincare.

    UPDATE: THIS GIVEAWAY EXTENDED FOR ONE DAY- I WILL CHOOSE WINNERS ON SATURDAY AUGUST 24TH AND ANNOUNCE HERE AND ON INSTAGRAM. If you are at that point in life where you KNOW you need to start taking care of your skin– because you want your skin to match how you feel about your body, right? You work out a lot, eat right, and focus on getting fit…but you might feel that your face (and neck and chest area for that matter) don’t really reflect how young and vibrant and healthy you feel.

    Is this you? Are you looking for an anti-aging skincare solution that actually delivers results? 

    If you’ve been following me for a while you know I have been RAVING about GLOWBIOTICS for quite some time. I first found out about them when I went to get Botox for the first time. I wrote a whole post about my mad love for them here

    This stuff is the BOMB. Medical grade probiotic based skincare that feels like heaven when you put it on and – ladies, I am 50 years old– I feel so awesome about my skin, I can’t put enough words here on my blog post to describe it enough. 

    I am CONSTANTLY asked about my skincare and constantly told that my skin “glows”. Now- I will always be very transparent– I mentioned Botox above- so yes, I get “work done”. But- Botox and fillers don’t address your SKIN TEXTURE and they don’t create a glow. Those procedures are more about gravity and the architecture UNDERNEATH the skin. GLOWBIOTICS is going to address your skin and how it looks and feels. And I promise you, you start using these products, you will experience the glow. You will become obsessed. You will never go back to any other skincare. This stuff is AMAZING– and today– is your lucky day because – per the title of this post, it’s GIVEAWAY time!! 

    Let's level up your skincare game.

    Kelly Olexa Skincare

    I’m going to be bold and shallow. This photo was taken 2 weeks ago. Did I adjust the photo in Lightroom- yes. What I did was adjust the texture component– because when we took these photos we went inside and outside and it was 104 degrees and when the pics came back it was clear I had some shiny face/sweat stuff going on. I”m sharing this with you to say, I only did a slight bit of touching up on this photo. Frankly I hate the idea of photoshopping myself to look 10 years younger or 20lbs lighter online so when people meet me in person they are like WTH?? Nope. I feel damn great about how I look at age 50 and I attribute a lot of that to Glowbiotics and to my injector at The Jules Co. 😉 Now, let’s get on with the giveaway.

  • How to get INSANELY beautiful skin at any age.

    Great skin requires a solid skincare routine.

    Ladies, how many of you love your skin? How many of you wonder how to get better skin? How many of you wonder what anti-aging products are the BEST and actually WORK? How many of you are interested in how to get great looking skin after the age of 40 or 50 or 60? How many of you have experienced your skin and face showing the signs of aging after having kids or experiencing hormonal imbalance- or both? 

    I hear you.

    I haven’t had kids, but I’ve had massive hormonal imbalance issues for YEARS– and about a year and a half ago, I noticed my face wasn’t making me happy when I looked in the mirror. 

    The truth is, for most of my adult life, even though I’ve baked in the sun for hours on end and gone to tanning beds and not worn SPF….I’ve never felt gross about my skin. I’ve never had that thing happen that people warned me about- “Oh if you keep going out in the sun you’ll look like you’re 70 when you are 30…”. 

    NEWSFLASH: I’m 50 now and look better than I ever have- and I have never been mistaken for looking OLDER but rather for looking younger than my age. 

    Still. After 2 of the most stressful years of my life and after some weight gain and weight loss- my face looked WORN and my skin looks bland. Dull. Not happy. 

    Sometimes aging hits you like a ton of bricks. In the face. At close range.

    It was not a happy time when I first started realizing I was seeing AGING. I’d noticed some laxity in my facial skin for several years- in my YouTube videos- and had always planned to get “some work done” but I’d always felt good about myself even with no makeup (half of my YouTube videos in the past were sans makeup after a workout) and never felt like I looked OLD. 

    Then there came those days when I suddenly saw myself in the mirror and I just thought I looked pale and drawn and my skin looked dull and lifeless. Seriously. It reminded me of how my man describes the weather in Chicago; BLEAK.

    SO- even though I had been using some skincare products for years (Arbonne) I decided to level up and get Botox. I made my appointment and – oh boy did I feel revived after getting Botox. Seriously. Injectables and me are now BFFs. But this is when I learned about GLOWBIOTICS- medical grade skincare. I bought a package of several of their best selling products and have been hooked ever since. The truth is I saw my skin improve so much after using it day and night that I stalked them online and got a meeting with the marketing team because I wanted to help them spread the word. And I did and the team at GLOWBIOTICS is an awesome one. Their probiotic-based skincare line is to-die-for! It’s a big part of why I feel so amazing about how I look at age 50!! I’m looking forward to 60 and 70 and beyond! For real. 

    Great skin takes time and effort and money but it's so WORTH IT.

    So- here are my tips based on my experience for how to get great skin at any age.

    • First of all, recognize this does require some time. You gotta wash your face- wash your makeup off at night. So many women don’t do this and OY TO THE VEY come on!! Invest in 5-10 minutes each morning and night for your skincare routine. You’ll notice the results.

    Invest in a Clarisonic device. Seriously. This is exfoliation at its best. Go to YouTube and watch every beauty vlogger recommend it too. JUST BUY it and use it to wash your face and neck and chest every night: CLICK HERE to buy on 

    • Get an “anti-aging pillowcase”. If you would have asked me years ago if I’d fall for this concept I would have laughed but– after I started getting waxed and got my FACE – full face waxed and ended up with breakouts on my chin/neck- my wax lady explained that because I did not listen to her and change my pillowcase, my open pores that day that slept on a not-clean pillowcase got clogged with dirt and bacteria. GULP. I then began looking up anti-aging/healthy skin pillowcases. Get you some. CLICK HERE to buy. 
    • DUH. Stock up on the best skincare on the planet- At GLOWBIOTICS.COM.  Use code KELLY20 to get 20% off all regularly priced items at their website. 
    • Get enough sleep. If you aren’t sleeping well or long enough (8 hours) – you will look haggard and nasty. Get sleep. I love my Sleep Number bed and my man and I thrive and sleep well with that plus COMPHY sheets and room darkening curtains. 
    • Don’t eat crap. What you eat affects your skin.
    • De-stress. Invest in self-care in a big way. Stress will destroy your health and make you look 25 years older. Anti-age from within by de-stressing. 
    • Don’t SMOKE. If you are a smoker I don’t know what to tell you other than you are dumb AF. Stop it. 
    • Watch alcohol intake. 
    • Hydrate hydrate hydrate. 

    You can start improving your skin and your looks at ANY AGE.

    I want to reiterate the notion that you can start getting great skin at any age. I didn’t start til age 37 with any skincare and didn’t get Botox until age 48! I personally feel that the non-invasive cosmetic procedures out there today combined with amazing medical grade skincare like GLOWBIOTICS plus= applying all that we know about health and wellness and stress etc. and- great contouring (YASSS QUEENS) it’s a fabulous time to be a woman– why fear aging? Embrace it by diving into all the options. Why the heck wouldn’t you?
