#2 Recommendation for a Wrinkle Free Face: Alpha lipoic acid (ALA)

ALA is known as the “universal antioxidant.” It works in both the fat- and water-soluble parts of your cells and is known to scavenge more types of free radicals than any other known antioxidant.

As you may know, free radical damage and sun damage go hand in hand. In one study reported in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science, researchers looked at the effects of ALA and other antioxidants on women with sun-damaged skin. They gave the women either a supplement that contained ALA, vitamin E, vitamin C, and lutein, or a placebo. After two months, the women who took the antioxidant-rich supplement had lower levels of free radicals in their blood, as well as better skin hydration. Better hydration equals a better chance at seeing wrinkle free skin!

I recommend 25 mg of ALA daily. Solgar is one good brand of ALA. You can buy Solgar at shops like The Vitamin Shoppe. GNC also makes its own ALA.
