The K-Beauty “7 Skin Method” Is Not As Intimidating As It Sounds

From sheet masks at Target to a pop up at Nordstrom, Korean beauty finds are everywhere these days. But if you think you look ridic in a sheet mask, just wait. The latest K-beauty craze is even more #bananas. Sarah Lee, CEO and co-founder of Glow Recipe Korean Skincare, breaks down the “Seven Skin Method” and explains why you’ve got to try it RN.


1. What is the “Seven Skin Method” routine? In a nutshell, this is a skincare regimen where seven layers of your toner are patted on and layered in succession. Yep, seven times! And take note: “Skin” and “toner” are actually the same word in Korean, Lee explains. Ah ha. “I’ve passionately introduced this method to the US after falling in love with how well it works to renew and refresh dehydrated skin,” she says. Awakened, plumped, glowing skin? We’re listening!

2. Is it worth it? “Yes, seven layers sounds like a lot of time and product. But it’s actually a great way to condense your skincare steps, as the moisture level of the skin is maximized,” Lee notes. “So if you have oily or combination skin, you don’t even need a moisturizer after and can go straight to your makeup.” Sounds so ahmazing!

4. What toners would you use and where can we find them? Lee stresses the importance of finding a toner that works for your skin and has a suitable ingredient list. Remember, you are going to be using the formula on your skin over multiple layers (multiple, multiple layers!) so choose wisely. She recommends Whamisa Organic Flowers Deep Rich Essence Toner ($40). Note: Be sure to avoid toners with alcohol, as they will dry out the skin or potentially cause irritation if layered more than once.

5. What are the results? The idea behind the seven layers is that the moisture level of the skin can be increased in an efficient and effective way that results in a beautiful complexion without the heaviness or greasiness that may come from traditional creams and oils. It’s also a great way to hydrate all skin types, providing the optimal balance of hydration and skin’s natural oils with a subtle dewy glow and firmer skin. Seven layers seem like a lot of work, but it’s worth it. We’re so in.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
