Remember when we talked about the 7-Skin Method? If not, here’s a little refresher to jog your memory. This Korean skincare technique involves the application of 7 layers of a hydrating toner to give your skin maximum moisture. The logic behind it is simple: since toners are so lightweight, every layer feeds the skin and fully absorbs without feeling heavy. Bye, haggard skin, hello, glow!

Tedious? Yes. Worth the trouble? Oh, yes. So, if you’re curious enough to try it yourself, here are 7 Korean toners made just for the job.
