Good idea. I’ll be trying this tomorrow! Thanks :)Hi everyone,
Just want to share a quick tip that I use to make sure everything is well absorbed / determine how much has been absorbed so far.
I guess this trick that I'm about to share with you apply to a lot of idealabs products, at least the tocopherols/SFA types, and since lately I've been applying 6-Keto P4 topically (navel route), I'll just post it on this thread.
So, I was routinely applying my 8 drops of 6-Keto in the belly button, I let it there and wait like 10 min so the product can raise to body temp, then I just grab the skin around the belly button and then rub skin against skin so the warm oil get really well spread and I don't waste any on my fingertips, then I wait a bit more.
The thing is, I can't really lie down like this for too long since I have stuff to do. But at the same time I was like OK my skin is still shining a lot so it's not totally absorbed. So if I put my t-shirt on, it's gonna be the one who absorbs the precious compound. And once again I don't want to use my fingers to make sure the 8 drops are absorbed in this area.
So what I did is, I took a tea spoon and gently scraped (with the edge) the shiny skin to gather the remaining oil (btw I noticed that of course 3/4 of it was already absorbed). Then I use the back of the spoon to spread it all around the belly button and it works just fine.
Et voila ! Hope it'll help
