135: Andy Hnilo of Alitura Naturals on Reversing Scarring and Healing His Body with Natural Remedies

October 14, 2018

Andy Hnilo is the founder of Alitura Naturals, a cutting-edge natural skincare line developed after Andy suffered a near-death experience that left his face deeply scarred. As a former model and high-level athlete, he was determined to rebuild his body and spirit using the healthiest ingredients and products he could find. The research and products he used himself to recover are what led him to create Alitura Naturals!

In this episode, Andy shares more about the car accident that left his body and face broken and scarred, changing his life forever. He explains everything he did to support his recovery, including both skincare and lifestyle factors. Andy talks about what got him interested in natural skincare to begin with, why he chose the ingredients he put in his products, the benefits of derma rolling, and the benefits of his clay mask. We also discuss red light therapy, his diet and lifestyle habits for feeling his best, the best oils to use for different skin types, and more.
