You may have already heard of the Korean "7 skin method," a beauty trend that requires you to layer a toner or a lightweight essence seven times in a row. It's a good alternative to heavy creams and serums, since it gives the same hydrating boost minus the greasiness that might come with thicker products. Needless to say, it's great for Pinays who deal with a hot, humid climate on a daily basis!

In case you want to give the routine a try, here are products to add to your skincare arsenal: 

COSRX Galactomyces Alcohol-Free Toner

P675, Skin Care Curator

Galacto-what? Otherwise known as pitera, galactomyces ferment filtrate is a by-product of yeast fermentation that brightens dull skin and nourishes from within.


Tony Moly The Chok Chok Green Tea Watery Skin

P678, SM Megamall

When choosing a toner to layer, keep in mind that Korean brands also market them as "skin." Try this one for a refreshing pick-me-up at the end of the day.

Naruko Taiwan Magnolia Brightening and Firming Toner EX

P699, The SM Store Makati

This watery toner contains Magnolia tree bark extract to keep skin elastic and enhance its translucence.


Etude House Pink Vital Water Facial Toner

P798, SM Megamal

Hate overwhelming your skin with heavy layers? This quick-absorbing yet super hydrating toner is for you! Bonus points for that sweet peach scent.

The Face Shop Yehwadam Heaven Grade Ginseng Revitalizing Toner

P1,495, SM Megamall

Koreans have been harnessing the benefits of ginseng in skincare for ages. We're definitely recent converts, after learning about its ability to encourage collagen production in the body.


Banila Co. Miss Flower & Mr. Honey Toner

P1,215, SM North EDSA

If your skin craves the nourishing and comforting hug that comes with honey-based products, you'll love this. It also contains propolis extract and royal jelly to revitalize, strengthen, and protect from breakouts and blemishes.

Erborian Eau Ginseng Concentrated Lotion

P2,119, Sephora Philippines

Don't let the name fool you! The consistency is a cross between a toner and an essence, which means your skin will have no problem drinking in all that ginseng goodness.


Mamonde Rose Water Toner

P540, Althea Philippines

It's tough finding a product that agrees with sensitive skin, but this toner is a good bet. It gently soothes and moisturizes skin with 90.89 percent Bulgarian rose water.
