WHAT IS THE 7 SKIN METHOD & BIGGEST MISTAKES TO AVOID
So what is the 7 skin method and what are the biggest mistakes to avoid? It became extremely popular in 2017 in South Korea, and we all still love it because it really works! So what kind of method is it, and how should it be applied? Sit down and we will explain it all today!
What is the 7 skin method?
In short, it is patting on your toner or essence 7 times on the skin, you are layering the toner seven times. Korean models, actresses and many Korean influencers are using the 7 skin method to get plump and hydrating skin. It is a perfect way to keep your skin moisturized without using any heavy oils or creams. It leaves your skin firm and plump.
Which toners or essences should be used for the 7 skin method?
Always avoid products with acids, harsh alcohols and fragrances when doing the 7 skin method. Keep in mind that you apply it multiple times so you got to make sure the product is gentle and won't leave any irritations. Secondly, avoid using thick, sticky and heavy toners.
We recommend to use Klairs Supple Preparation Unscented Toner, Purito Centella Green Level Calming Toner or the Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner (Original), these are gentle toners without any nasty ingredients.
Do I really have to apply it 7 times?
It is just a number and not proven that it works better when you apply it 7 times. You can apply 3 or 5 layers as you wish. You might find that more or less is enough for your skin, don't force yourself to apply it 7 times. Or you can build it up and start with 2 layers every time you do your skincare routine (AM and PM).
How do I apply it?
Just use a little bit of toner and pour it onto your palm. Don't use too much as your skin does need to be able to absorb it quickly. We like to rub it in our hands to increase the temperature first and press it on the skin to let it absorb. Just wait for 1-2 minutes in between when applying the next layer. Don't pat too hard, try to be gentle.
It leaves your skin plump, moisturized and dewy! You can skip using your essence if you used a toner during your 7 skin method, or you can skip using a sheet mask. Your skin is already fully hydrated after applying this method. However, don't forget to apply a serum, eye cream and a moisturizer when you are finished. You need to lock all the good stuff into your skin.
