Alpha Lipoic Acid is an antioxidant that helps protect against the damage caused by free radicals formed by exposure to the sun, pollution and heat. Add a 1/4 of the tube to 4oz of a base cream for antioxidant effects or add the entire tube to 4oz of a base cream for a light peel. When using your DIY Alpha Lipoic Acid Cream on a consistent basis, it can help fight free radicals, reduce inflammation, increase collagen production and improve skin texture.
