Alpha Lipoic Acid. You are not the only one who may ponder what some products are on our site...and I’ll admit, we have SO many  products that yes, sometimes I don’t know what all of them or what they may be used for! Take for example this product I found what I thought could be a very questionable item on our site…question for you: Do you know what Alpha Lipoic Acid is? So I thought I’d let you in on the know, and find out exactly what it is and how people use it.

If you care about your skin, you will know enough that antioxidants play a very big role in a healthy complexion. Alpha Lipoic Acid is a strong antioxidant oil that can be taken orally or applied on the skin topically; it’s main purpose is to promote healthy cell function and to boost skin’s radiance. What else does it do? If used daily, you can easily see a difference in your skin quality, like the minimization of enlarged pores and your skins imperfections slowly starting to fade away.

So let’s review..

What it is, is an oil that can be taken orally or used topically to promote radiant skin

How people use it, well that’s really up to the user. You can use it daily for best results, or every other day. Consistency is key, with any skin regimen!

Would you try Alpha Lipoic Acid…now that you know what it is?
