Dehydrated-skin saviors: The 7-skin Method and the Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner

My first skincare post has me lying on my back with a sheet mask on, trying to type while keeping my head flat on my pillow. Hooray for multitasking.

It’s probably helpful to mention that I have really dry, partially dehydrated skin. My research (basically me scouring other blogs/AB websites and being really shadowy on AB Reddit) and experience say skin needs two things—water and oil—in a good balance in order to be healthy. When water and oil levels are optimized, skin is bouncy, resilient, and soft. The overwhelming conclusion is that for successful skincare, one must find out their own skin-type (what they are lacking or what they have an excess of), and throw all the things it lacks at it until it is well-balanced.
