Meet Selby Pena of Skin Elixir

Today we’d like to introduce you to Selby Pena.

Selby, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I worked in Hollywood in the fashion and production industry for years. A wardrobe stylist for many rock and iconic music videos, commercials and also being a personal stylist for many. Traveling extensively throughout London, Europe, New York, I always find my self coming back to Los Angeles.

I found things in common about beauty, lifestyle, and fashion that I wanted to explore.

Throughout those fashion years, I picked up photography to accompany the direction I saw in life.

For years I was behind the scene creating styles, and a look that people could stand in and be excited to portray. It was a natural place for me to see in others. This is where I created my own vision with A skincare company, Skin elixir and became a yoga instructor .      To bring a Holistic, aesthetic, lifestyle.

This is where I included how to create one’s best self from the inside out. My philosophy is always from what you do inside is how you reflect outside. Yoga, natural approach to skincare, exercise, meditation, healthy food, and taking a good look at your self reflects with radiant skin and self transitions effortlessly to a beautiful way to shine.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Life always seems to have its ups and downs. Just finding a way to not be in the reactionary place. To find ways to observe instead of react. I have found that if I follow my heart and really take a good look at what I have to offer and how I can share, this seems to be a process that seems to help me, and others.

Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
My mentors were working alongside a strong successful woman. I would say what catapulted my life as a wardrobe stylist, was working with Raquel Welch. This started my serious way of guiding my self, my life, my health .Which  in turn encouraged my vision of Skin  elixir. I worked with her on several shows. One being a Television series. I learned first hand how to work on a demanding schedule, she showed me natural healthy tricks with food and nutrients and budgeting time. How to be ready for the day for whatever comes your way.

Very focused on timeline and schedules.

I worked as a wardrobe stylist on music videos and backstage tours with several artists, one of these amazing leaders is Madonna. She is another one that had a strong focus on scheduling time and healthy eating habits, preparing for each day a clean healthy nutrition plan, and rest time, along with exercise in small spaces and on the go. I learned how to maximize my time in being prepared. That pushed me to get noticed and receive these wonderful opportunities.

Living in downtown LA, while I was at college, I met an amazing woman photographer and designer.

Linda Myers-kirkorian, who showed me the ropes in styling, photography, art and design. She encouraged me to get reels together to document my work.  I bet you haven’t heard “reel” in a while! I loved being in LA and found my self moving to the Hollywood hills. This is where I met another great friend. A strong creative actor/model from Chicago, Jeanine O’Connell who introduced me to so many things. Arvada, acupuncture, clean living and Martial arts, which changed my life drastically in so many levels.

So basically I  believe that, following your ideas and dreams,  being aware of your timeline and self .  can bring you to many new places.

Healthy nutrition and exercise habits all go together. Being open for the gifts people bring and allow ways to share your knowledge.

That is how I found my own skincare shop for the past 20 years and received my black belt in Martial arts and became an instructor and teaching a yoga . Happiness Motherhood and yoga lifestyle.
