What is “7 skin method”?

This multi-application toner’s technique idea is to increase the level of skin’s hydration in an extremely efficient and also effective way. So, this act of applying a toner on your face multiple times must be applied right after the cleaning step and right before the moisturizing one.

According to Korean beauty fanatics, that have become this method popular online, swear by it to be the most effective one available. It’s suitable for every skin type since every skin needs hydration and toner.
Be careful. If you decide to start using the “7 skin method”, even though it is as easy as it sounds, there are some tips you need to follow before starting. You see, chances for you to over-apply the toner are pretty high. So, that is why many experts recommend you to start using this method by only including 3-4 layers of toner. Then, you can start from there. This method requires you to pour some toner on a cotton pad and start rubbing it on your fresh-washed skin. Then, do the same step 6 more times.
Why this methods works?
Well, is science! You see, when we apply the toner on our skin, or better say, any other skin care product, many times before the skin fully absorbs it, it evaporates. That means we don’t get all the benefits that specific product was supposed to give to our skin. So, in order to prevent this from happening, Korean women, invented this method. It can pretty much fully guarantee your skin the proper hydration. This method doesn’t only include 7 layers of toner; it also may include 7 layers of a water-based essence since this product has almost the same function like the toner.
So, by allowing your skin to fully drink up the toner/essence and get all their ingredients, it will eventually have the salon-glow that you have always dreamed of having. The hydration will last longer and your skin will instantly seem to be more vital than ever. You can pretty much consider skipping the moisturizer product from your skin care routine if you decide to use the “7 skin method” regimen.
Tip: Sometimes, the 7 layers might not be necessary. Or, there might be skin types that need more than 7 layers of tonners in order to be fully nourished. It all depends on your skin type. If you tend to have a dry skin, that need an extra care and hydration touch. In this case, you might consider applying even 10 layers of toner. Many beauty gurus do so.
