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.
