First, you need to check publisher requirements.  Generally, ACS style recommends to use 12 point font.  For the labels in the figure, you can use one or two points smaller than the axis labels or normal size.  However, it should be no smaller than 7 points in general.  Journals should use no smaller than 5 points.
