Description

Be Well By Kelly is on a mission to simplify the science of nutrition. I want to make choices, not cheats. I want to live in balance, quiet my inner perfectionist, and never feel like my goals are out of reach. I want to love the way I look AND feel. I want to be proactive about my long-term health and wellness. I want to have a positive relationship with food for the rest of my life.

And I want the same for all of you! Join me and some of my favorite people every Wednesday as we give you all the good stuff (and none of the bad) about nutrition: the positive takeaways, the tools and tips that will help you feel and be well, and a dose of motivation to keep you going.

Meet the new face of age-reversal skincare. I’m thrilled to welcome Carolina Oliveira, the CEO and co-founder of OneSkin. Carolina and her team are disrupting the outdated anti-aging skincare industry with their groundbreaking research on our largest organ and its longevity. I’ve seen the results firsthand. You know that I’m a skeptic when it comes to commercial skincare products. But after digging into OneSkin’s research, I started using their products about a year ago. I’ve been so impressed – my skin looks more youthful, softer, and has a new glow!On today’s episode, we get into the science behind their topical skin products. We talk about what causes aging and if it’s reversible. Carolina explains what peptides are and how they work, sharing her revolutionary research into the OS-O1 peptide.
