Is the 7 Skin Method Really All That?

We're getting to the bottom of this Korean beauty trend.

There's a new skincare trend making the rounds. But is it right for you? We're breaking down the K-beauty trend called the 7 Skin Method to see what it's really all about. Read on for this week's beauty dictionary.

The tem: 7 Skin Method

Also known as: 7 Toner Method, repeatedly applying toner...again and again...and again

What it does: This new method is all about the toner. Meant to be done after you cleanse and before you moisturize, the 7 Skin Method is focused on hydrating the skin via multiple layers of toner. (FYI toner and skin are the same word in Korean hence the name!) To try the 7 Skin Method, layer your toner in succession after cleansing. For best results, use a cotton swab to pat your toner into your skin to reach max absorption. The thought is that continually applying your toner, as many as seven times, will help hydrate skin and balance out skin's natural moisture level without the heaviness of an oil or cream. This method might just be what oily skin sufferers are looking for.
