Update:
I think this new routine is super effective.

Tonight I got all dolled up and put on makeup. I used some powder and a bit of concealer. The powder seemed to do nothing, I looked more even than I have been since about age 18 w/o makeup!

I saw this tutorial on Korean skin care a while back but it seemed to involve like 10 applications of some moisturizing toner??

Asians focus skin health first with very good skin hydration, what they call a honey skin. Although Americans seem to focus more on makeup application to hide our flaws. The Korean skin care is below.

1. Cleanse with oil based cleanser,
2. Cleanse with water based cleanser,
3. Exfoliate
4. Toner
5. Essence / Ampules
6. Moisturize
7. Sunblock

You are referring to the 7 layers using a hydrating toner, patted on and layered in succession. The idea behind the 7 layers is that the moisture level of skin can be increased in an effective way without the heaviness or greasiness that may come from traditional creams and oils.

I naturally have dry skin and found it works well. I have to be careful with the actives but the routines help my skin from becoming angry.

The Korean

I naturally have dry skin and found it works well. I have to be careful with the actives but the routines help my skin from becoming angry.
I am doing most of these steps and have been all year. My routine looks like this:
1. Oil cleanser
2. Gel cleanser (most days)
2a. Mask in the shower
3. Hydrating toner
4. Oil serum
5. Eye cream
6. Essence
6a. Overnight mask (1-2x a week)
7. Sunblock

7 applications is likely too much for me. But the essence step and the oil
Serum have really killed my dryness.
