It will add extra hydration and plump your skin. The experts say the more your skin is hydrated the less hydrating products you will need to use afterwards.
How do I apply the layers?
Pour a couple of drops into your hands and pat the product onto your face until the product is fully absorbed. You only need a tiny amount as you will be applying more. You might find you prefer a hydrating mist which you can spray directly onto your face.
When & how often do I apply these layers?
You apply these straight after cleansing (and exfoliation) and before you add all your serums and moisturisers. When repairing skin, you can do 7 skins every night, your dehydrated skin will tell you as it feels tight.

Do I have to do 7 layers? Can I do 5?
You can do as many or as few as you wish. Start slowly allowing your skin to adjust to this new technique and work your way up to 7 layers (if you wish to do 7 that is). If repairing skin or treating dehydrated skin, you may need more layers initially and be able to slow down after time.
How long do I need to wait between each layer?
Each layer should be well absorbed before applying the next. It really depends on your skin and how well / quickly it absorbs products.
Some skin needs an adjustment period but
What ingredients should I be avoiding?
If you´re going to be adding up to 7 layers of a product then you want to avoid all added fragrances and alcohols.
Can I mix toners and essences?
Yes, you can. In the video above, Glow Recipe explains it´s all about finding the right toners and essences for your skin.
Can I apply this method to my eye area?
Yes, you can but try not to go too close to the eye. You can use an eye cream before applying 7 skins to help protect the delicate area.
What about exfoliation?
When painting a blank canvass, it needs to be clean and smooth from the start to achieve a great finish. The same goes for our skin. The cleaner and smoother your skin is, the better the products will absorb. Exfoliate a couple of times a week and make sure your skin is really cleansed well before applying 7 skins.
When would I apply Lactic Acid if doing this method?
Deciem says to apply Lactic Acid after toner.
