    Question on topicals...


    So the gels and stuff, ie: Formeron, Sustain Alpha etc. etc. etc. if your hand absorbs a bit of the product, but has crappy absorption, would it be better to rub it into the sites with a plastic baggie or glove on the hand to keep 99% of it at the site and not into the hand pores?

    Not exactly what you asked, but I've seen people recommend to rub it in with your forearms to prevent wasting some on your hands

    I agree with this. Probably over-thinking things.

    When applying topicals I usually use gloves anyway to make sure that it doesn't get anywhere it's not supposed to, so I'd say there are a few benefits to using gloves, if you're really concerned about hand absorption

    Yeah, I do that. I just wondered some after reading the thread on Formeron. Plus the fact that my hands are pretty calloused and dry and stuff seems to dry quick as soon as I get my hands on it.
    I used a baggie today on some Sustain Al. and it seemed to take quite a bit longer to rub into the area before it was dry and gone.

    Thanks for the replies

    where are you applying the lotion? for example if ur applying it on ur chest, squirt it on ur chest or foearms and rub it in with the forearms since u could reach ur chest with ur forearm......absorption into the forearms is a pretty good spot regardless so anything that absorbs into it will be ok

    Yeah, I'll try that. I did hear the forearm thing might be better. Thanx
    And not to overthink this **** (although that may be true somewhat) but this stuff is never very cheap, or I wouldn't mind wasting some of it HA HA
