Seven Skin Method
What is the 7 Skin Method?
In Korea, toners are often known as “skins” hence the name 7 Skin Method. Essentially it is the method of layering a hydrating toner or essence up to seven times.
Layering your toner/essence allows your skin to absorb the product more effectively. It is a great way to hydrate all skin types and is really worth that extra effort. As with everything in skincare, it is important to listen to your skin and you do not have to apply all seven layers. You may find that only three or four layers is sufficient (in fact if you are new to this method, we recommend that you start off with only three or four layers before building this up).
This method does add a little extra time onto your routine as you need to make sure each layer is patted in sufficiently and mostly absorbed into your skin before moving onto the next layer. After all the purpose of this method isn’t to just pile on excess product on your skin, you actually want your skin to soak up each layer!
It is very important that you use the correct type of toner/essence for this method. A hydrating lightweight toner works best and any toners containing artificial fragrances or alcohol must be avoided as this can dry out your skin and cause irritation.
How to do the 7 Skin Method
