I wanted to share the "Absorption Test" from nutrition and skincare expert Kat Burki, founder of the super popular skincare line that uses cold pressed ingredients, sold at Bloomingdale's and Nordstrom.
Burki says the best say to tell if your skin wants or needs a product is to place it on the back of your hand. If your body craves the active ingredients (the same way we crave vegetables) it will quickly absorb. If the product just sits there and does nothing it means your body is rejecting it and not only will the product not be effective, it may cause breakouts and inflammation because it doesn't agree with your body chemistry.
Burki recommends checking all your skincare products starting with lightweight formulas such as Kat Burki's Rose Hip Revitalizing Serum which contains an anti-inflammatory blend of B5 Vitamins such as Arnica Lavender, Calendula and Chamomile with Aloe and Cucumber to soothe skin, increase hydration and support the skin's recovery process before moving to heavier creams such as Kat Burki's award-winning Vitamin C Intensive Face Cream which adds Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil to smooth and firm the skin while brightening and supporting natural collagen production. All Kat Burki products are made with the finest cold-pressed ingredients so the maintain maximum effectiveness.
