063: Andy Hnilo - Generating Healthy Skin Cells, Personal Care Ingredients to Avoid for Healthier Skin, Why Retinol is Bad and What to Use Instead

The Natural State with Dr. Anthony Gustin

Most people know just how important it is to check food labels to see if there are any chemical ingredients lurking inside. But, for some reason, many don’t carry this important step over to other areas of their life, especially when it comes to skincare products. As you’ll learn in this episode with Andy Hnilo, the founder of an all-natural skincare line, Alitura Naturals, this is a huge mistake. And we’re not talking about causing more wrinkles or creating crow’s feet twenty years too early. Rather, you’ll see that many skincare products out there contain carcinogenic ingredients, which means they have the potential to cause cancer. And that’s just the beginning sadly. Andy explains the real impact these fake ingredients have on your health, he shares the worst offenders to avoid starting immediately, and why expensive prescription skincare products aren’t any better. You’ll also discover the truth about retinol creams and how to find sunscreens that are toxin-free. If you’re wondering who Andy Hnilo is, he’s a former D1 baseball player who suffered a huge trauma that led him down this path of uncovering the truth about skincare products and the harmful ingredients in them. He’s made it his mission to provide a healthier alternative that’s GMO and chemical-free. You’ll hear about this and so much more when you check out this episode now.
