I’m 99.9% sure that you’ve heard about the “7-skin Method” if you have an interest in Korean beauty. It is very simple. It’s applying up to 7 layers of a hydrating toner or watery essence to your skin. Many Korean actresses and K-pop idols show how they use the 7-skin method for plump, glowing skin. It will add extra hydration and plump your skin. But before you start, here are some facts that you should know.
How and when to apply the layers?
First, wash your face. Soak a cotton pad with a toner and lightly sweep away any residue and dead skin cells before you start layering. The cleaner and smoother your skin is, the better the products will absorb.
After wiping, pour a couple of drops in your hands and pat softly the product onto your face until the product is fully absorbed. You only need a tiny amount as you will be applying more. You can do a 7-skin method in the morning or at night before going to bed. You apply these right after cleansing (it would be better after exfoliation) and before you add all your serums and moisturizers. If you are too busy in the morning, you can just apply the layers about 3 to 5 times (it’s up to you). It also helps your skin glow and hydrated. The important thing is not how many layers, but whether your skin is hydrated or not.
Things to keep in mind
- Choose the right product for your skin
If you already know a little about the 7-skin method, you probably know that you have to use products without harsh alcohol or artificial fragrances. But there are more things to know about the ingredients that should be avoided. The consistency of toner also matters. Depending on how rich and nutritious your product is, you may find that doing the 7-skin method leaves your skin greasy. So you need to choose something with a runnier consistency or adjust the number of layers.
For the 7-skin method, Maccaron recommends these toners:
2. Make sure the product absorbs sufficiently between layers
If you try the 7-skin method, you’ll find that it’s not as time-consuming as you thought. But every time when you do it, don’t forget to pat and absorb enough in each layer before moving onto the next. If you are in a rush, you run the risk of overwhelming your skin with a product that doesn’t get absorbed.
3. Don’t forget to care your eye area
When you’re doing the 7-skin method, make sure not to forget to care for your eye area. Since the skin around your eyes is extra thin, it begins to lose moisture as soon as you finish your cleansing steps. So why don’t you include your eye area when you do the 7-skin method? But try not to get too close to the eye. Also, you can just apply an eye cream before applying.
4. Moisturise after the 7-skin method
As you feel that your skin is enough hydrated straight after completing the 7-skin method, you might skip moisturizing. But it is recommended that you must finish your routine with a moisturizer not to let all that hard work go to waste.
As the 7-skin method is the most popular Korean skincare hack, Maccaron highly recommends you try it. It is very skin-friendly and can be done on a daily basis.
