We all have a passion for self-improvement.

For Andy Hnilo, a former athlete and actor, it nearly meant life or death.

After a car accident that left Andy unconscious with 7 broken ribs, a collapsed lung, a broken jaw, and multiple gashes across the body, his life changed. His ER doctor told him, You have the worst facial injury I have ever seen."

For a year, Andy became obsessed with accelerating his recovery. Through self-research, Andy made radical changes to his nutrition, exercise routine (he would do hill sprints while his jaw was wired shut), and, most notably, created his own skincare concoctions to heal his scarring. 7 weeks after the accident, he was back at work acting. 

That was the genesis of Alitura Naturals. Andy firmly believes that we should treat our skin (our largest organ) as a second mouth. What gets applied on our skin gets absorbed in less than 30 seconds, so Andy only puts natural ingredients that he would eat into his products.

In this discussion, you'll discover: 

  • How Andy's experimentation with skincare for his own personal healing evolved into a successful business.
  • What ingredients we should put on our skin vs. what we should avoid.
  • Digging into the layers of what makes us ‘tick’ as humans and the driving forces that build our internal motivation.
