Homemade ALA

I made my own ALA yesterday. I combined a capsule with spenco gel. I have to say, it looks good, and my skin is so soft. I don't want to get anyone's hopes up, because I only used it once so far, but it seems promising.

It burned a bit when I first put it on, but after a bit, it felt okay. Additionally, my face wasn't burnt at all afterwards, or red. Actually, it was very soothing.

Too soon to see if I break out from it, but here's hoping. My scars appear softer too.

I have to get in touch with the spenco people because in their insert they said that using spenco for long periods can cause "sensitization phenomena." I want more details on that before I continue to use it daily, and want all of you to be aware of this possible side effect.

Since spenco contains hyaluronic acid, it is in itself a good scar aid, so I thought mixing ALA would be doubly beneficial.

We'll see...
